“Brian's vast experience as an artist/ songwriter and producer has laid a strong foundation whereby 7 of the 8 demo tracks on my forthcoming album have either won awards or have been shortlisted in the ASA, TSA, Songsalive, Maldon and the Basin song comp. Brian gets me!”
— Cathy Dobson - songwriter/recording artist
The Bakery is a production studio dedicated to serving the artist and the song.
Bring your songs to life with Uber Producer Brian Baker in his studio.

Eddie Rayner (Split Enz, Crowded House, The Makers, Paul McCartney)
Hugh Padgham (The Police, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins)
David Carr (Taxiride, Russell Morris, Kiss Chasey, Gradual)
David Briggs (Little River Band, Australian Crawl, Skyhooks and too many more to mention…)

The Bakery is a stripped down studio - sorry gear heads - no fancy pants retro knobs. Just a great set of RME A/D converters, transparent Joe Meek mic pre, a few well chosen microphones, Yamaha NS10 and Mackie speakers, all in a comfortable, semi isolated space. We don't often track drums, to record a drummer we usually head into David Carr's Rangemaster Studio in The Patch or David Briggs Studio in North Melbourne. What we do do is track great sounding guitars, horns, keyboards and vocals. (And Brian’s drum programming chops are sensational - more than enough to bring your song demo to life!) But what's more you get to pull apart your songs with Brian, see how they can be the best they can, work on recording great vocal takes, and come up with innovative, interesting arrangements for your tracks that will bring your music to life in ways you always dreamt of! Brian can add bass, guitars, keyboards, drums and the rest to bring your musical vision out in glorious technicolor.
