Jai Baker Bio

     At the early age of 7, Jai began performing with his family’s Indiana based band with his big brother, David Baker (lead guitar). 4 years later they would meet Kevin Bonewitz (drums). The three would not only become best friends but life long brothers. Jai, David and Kevin travelled playing fairs, festivals and family events with Jai and David's parents.  This experience proved to be invaluable in the development of Jai Baker's musicality. Jai has played everything from Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash to Fleetwood Mac,  The Beatles,  Matchbox 20 to Pearl Jam and Morgan Wallen to Hardy and everything in between. Variety of songs meant happy customers at the end of the night. 

As Jai grew into his High School years (Warsaw Communithy High School, Warsaw, Indiana), he began playing in a Hard Rock band performing original music at various festivals, fairs and concert venues. They continued to hone and refine their musical sound. When you hear Jai sing today, all of these influences have created a beautiful amalgamation of color that is uniquely Jai Baker.  

    Currently, Jai Baker has focused all of his life and musical experiences into the genre of Country music. Throughout the touring process Jai has realized it’s not always an easy road.  Persevering through tough personal life struggles and balancing a healthy family life with a music career is never easily accomplished. Climbing over the steep mountains of life and maintaining a musical path simultaneously proves to be an ominous endeavor. Through Jai's perseverance, some momentum has started to occur.  In 2010 and 2012, Jai pushed far into American Idol and The Voice television programs nearly making the finals in both. He has opened or shared the stage with many National Headlining acts including, Luke Bryan, Justin Moore, Keith Urban, Faith Hill, Gretchen Wilson, Riley Green, Mitchell Tenpenny and Colt Ford. He recently opened for hip hop artist, Flo Rida at Ruoff Home Mortgage Center in Noblesville, Indiana.
