Shot Baker plays an honest form of aggressive punk rock with driving melodies and addictive choruses. Reinforced by the band's harmonic backup vocals, frontman Tony Kovacs belts out compelling themes of personal endeavor, uprising, and self-realization. Being referred to as 'a continuation of the best Chicago punk has to offer,' Shot Baker has definitely been making their presence known in the music scene. The band possesses many great qualities but their overall enthusiasm and passion is what puts them on a different level from many bands playing today. Shot Baker is John Krohn (guitar), Nat Wright (bass), Chris Gach (drums), and Tony Kovacs (vocals). The band was formed in 2003 after the demise of the members' previous bands. With a newfound excitement and highly creative chemistry, the band began writing and recording immediately. To date, Shot Baker has released two EP's and a full-length album entitled 'Awake.' They are currently working on their best material yet for a new album. Shot Baker is constantly promoting and playing shows in and around Chicago, and so far has embarked on East Coast and Southern US tours in addition to constant Midwest excursions with much more touring to come. Shot Baker isn't here to mix genres, hop on what's popular, or capture a sound. They're here to play music that drives them. It's this simplified way of raw aggression, anger, passion, and love for the music that makes them such a refreshing act to see these days. '...some of the most addictive, balls-to-whatever-wall-you've-got punk around...' -Alternative Press Magazine 'This band epitomizes the golden trifecta of talent, passion, and relentlessness...' -PunkNews.org 'This is so rad... sing-along punk that you just can't pass up.' -Punk Planet '...amongst the most exciting punk bands that have ever thrown music out of my speakers... The band lives and breathes honesty and sincerity through their songs, and nowhere is it more apparent than when the band is playing live.' -Mike Gibson, Radio One Chicago '...a much needed enhancement for a scene that's grown to soft for it's own good.' -Jaded In Chicago '...it's like a kick in the face.' -WLUW 88.7 Independent Community Radio '...right when you're about ready to lower punk rock's coffin for the seventy fifth time, an album like 'Awake' lands in your grubby paws, and you have to postpone the funeral again.' -Badresa '... a refreshing take on straight-forward, inspiring punk-rock ... This stuff is played well, tight, dripping with earnest, and even a little disgust.' -Screaming Bloody Mess 'Shot Baker plays some of the best punk rawk I've heard from Chicago in years. ... I can't wait to see 'em live.' -Tail Spins Magazine '...a highly volatile mixture of raw aggression, anger, passion and love for the music.' -Chicago Innerview 'I seriously love these guys personally and I love their music and more than anything I'm constantly inspired at the pure enthusiasm that this band embodies.' -Justin Schwier, Underground Communique Records.
