Event Description

Electric Religious is the project of Edmonton-based Métis singer-songwriter, Brandon Baker, whose guitar-driven music has been described as “bursting with inspiration, insight, and hope.” Deeply influenced by the psychedelic sounds of Jimi Hendrix, Baker took his moniker from a Hendrix quote: “When I get up on stage, that’s my whole life. That’s my religion. My music is electric church music. I am electric religion.” Electric Religious easily found a home among Canada’s lush movement of feel-good guitar pop. “Think Mother Mother and the Stars coming together... ‘Revolution’ hits the ground running, weaving capricious guitar, solid rhythms and anthemic lyrics. There are plenty of twists, turns & genre bending moments... Suffice it to say Yeah, Yeah, No is fit to be played on the radio and very loudly” (Edmonton Muse). Electric Religious has performed for audiences as large as 50,000 during the opening ceremonies for Red Bull Crashed Ice 2015 in Edmonton, which was broadcast to over 1.7 million viewers over network television and live YouTube streams. In late 2019, Baker began recording demos for his sophomore release, titled Tragic Lover, at Velveteen Audio in Edmonton, Alberta. Working with JUNO-nominated producer, Brad Simons (Nuela Charles - Adult Contemporary Album of the Year), Baker’s collection of seven new songs demonstrate his keen-eyed ability to unite themes of displacement, hope, inter-generational trauma, and healing in his songwriting. Tragic Lover was released on September 24th 2021.
