Kurt Baker 4GB USB Cassette BackKurt Baker is a singer, songwriter and rock n' roll performer from Portland, Maine who has always gone by the famous saying "Have a Good Time All the Time". He is a founding member of the notable pop/punk outfit the Leftovers, who formed in 2002 and released many acclaimed records and toured all over North America and Europe. Kurt Baker's signature unique blend of ultra catchy Beach Boys/Beatles styled melodies under a relentless wall of high energy guitars and pounding rhythms have earned him the praise of Larry Livermore (founder of Lookout Records), Ben Weasel (Screeching Weasel) and Jaret Reddick (Bowling For Soup).

Kurt emerged as a solo artist with a "labor of love" solo EP, "Got It Covered", (2010 Oglio Records). Produced by Los Angeles based pop genius, Linus of Hollywood, "Got It Covered" featured Baker's take on some of his favorite Power Pop songs of the 70's and 80's and featured guest appearances from Kay Hanley (Letters To Cleo) and Adam Marcello (Katy Perry). Kurt's love of these classic songs all had one thing in common- "a key sense of melody.. and melody has always been the most important aspect of music to me. If you have a catchy hook in your song, you can do no wrong. I've always strived to write music that is catchy and fun.. that will be stuck in your head for hours after listening".

After a successful solo-tour of Europe in the fall of 2010, backed by Italy's best Power Pop band, The Radio Days, Baker focused on taking his solo act back to the USA. A brief stint of shows throughout the Midwest brought together a group of musicians featuring Mike Bryne (the Methadones), Wyatt Funderburk (Second Saturday), Geoff Useless (the Guts) & Craig Sala (Planeside), to make up the Kurt Baker Band.

Kurt Baker – Got It Covered / Don’t Steal My Heart Away


“Don’t Steal My Heart Away”

"I had originally penned this tune for a group I briefly moonlighted with called The Goodnight Process in the spring of 2010. The band had been a local staple on the Portland, ME music scene playing pop/rock that was very influenced by groups like Rooney and Sondre Lerche, but when I joined the group we took a more straight ahead 70’s power pop approach, trying to draw heavily on groups like the Knack and Electric Light Orchestra.

“Don’t Steal My Heart Away” could have been a The Leftovers tune, but playing it with a whole set of musicians in the Goodnight Process really shaped how the song would eventually turn out. I dug this tune so much, and the audience reception to it was always great whenever we played it live, so after my stay in The Goodnight Process, this was one of the first tunes I wanted to record for my upcoming solo album of all original material.

This track features some excellent synth and back up vocal work from Kris “Fingers” Rodgers, and a killer lead guitar solo that channels The Shirelles “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”, thanks to guitar monster Miek Rodrigue."  - Kurt Baker, Portland Maine

LYRICS
"Don’t Steal My Heart Away"
It started out like nothing new, it’s still the same old story
I saw her dancing at the show, she looked my way and suddenly
I got the feeling, hits me every time
One more one night stand, where do I draw the line?
(Hey now baby) You’ve got A lot to Learn
(About some loving) But since it is your turn
(So don’t misuse it) Don’t steal my heart away
She said she’s like to know me more, but I know all about her
She’ll have her way til she gets bored, I’m through with this encounter
No more guessing and hide your disguise
You’ll be on to the next one before it’s goodbye
(Hey now baby) You’ve got A lot to Learn
(About some loving) But since it is your turn
(So don’t misuse it) Don’t steal my heart away
Tell me - tell me what your doing, I can’t stop from losing
It’s a shame they call it love
So i’m through, being your affection, if you just want attention
And i’m not giving it up
No more guessing and hide your disguise
You’ll be on to the next one before it’s goodbye
(Hey now baby) You’ve got A lot to Learn
(About some loving) But since it is your turn
(So take it easy) Don’t steal my heart away
