Bio

In Baron's formative years, he sang and played rhythm guitar in his father's various choir groups. At one early guitar lesson, he was accompanied by an electric bass player and was fascinated by the instrument. He made the bass his main instrument and hasn't looked back since. While inspired by Jazz masters the likes of Jaco Pastorius, Anthony Jackson & Stanley Clarke, Baron's influences also include Progressive Rock and Fusion pioneers such as Chris Squire of Yes, Ray Shulman of Gentle Giant and Percy Jones of Brand X.

As a player, Baron has the ability to dazzle with a dizzying display of technical prowess, but his virtuosity never gets in the way of the music. His musical phrases are always tempered with taste, heart-felt passion and a deep respect for the groove. As a writer, Baron does not merely mirror his diverse musical influences. Instead, each tune is an honest reflection of his unique inner voice. Listening to Baron's compositions is like being on a musical safari. There is at once beauty, power, grace and a sense of adventure.
