'David Baron's music is awesome! I listen to it almost every morning.' - Stell Patsiokas, Executive Vice President, XM/Sirius Satellite Radio A passionate singer, a gifted pianist, and an insightful songwriter, David Baron began crafting his unique brand of piano rock as a child prodigy in South Florida. By the time he graduated from Stanford University in 2007, Baron's soaring vocals and confessional lyrics had caught the ear of audiences across the country. Now a resident of San Francisco, Baron released a self-titled EP in the summer of 2008 featuring 6 original tracks display his expressive voice over a powerful piano rock sound. In songs like the bitter rocker "Love Is Just A Lie" and the heartwrenching ballad "Shadows On The Inside", Baron captures what it felt like at some of the most important moments in the artist's life, from growing up as a kid in South Florida to searching for love as a post-grad on the west coast. "They're the most autobiographical songs I've ever written," says Baron. "It made sense to simply title it David Baron, because every note and every word of these songs says 'This is who I am.'" Baron co-produced the EP with Grammy-award winning producer Stephen Short, who discovered Augustana and has worked with such artists as Phil Collins and Remy Zero. The tracks were recorded at Archon Studios in Los Angeles with engineer Aris Archontis. Track Listing: 1. Love Is Just A Lie 2. Standing Still 3. Shadows On The Inside 4. Kids 5. Nothing To Fear 6.

'Great stuff, I gotta say, tons of commercial potential indeed...I wouldn't be surprised at all to see David breakthrough someday.' - Aaron Axelsen, Music Director, LIVE 105 San Francisco 'I really love David's pop sensibility and the hooks I've heard are great...I'm officially a fan!' - Jayn, Music Director, Alice 97.3 San Francisco 'We receive literally hundreds of CDs from emerging artists each week, and it's rare to find one as developed and impressive as David Baron's. We will begin airing him on our Unsigned Channel shortly, and I would be surprised if he remained 'Unsigned' for very long. David demonstrates a technical excellence balanced with a mature approach to song construction and attitude that are among the key foundations of successful music. We'll be watching his growth as an artist carefully and with high hopes.' - Lee Abrams, Chief Programming Officer, XM Satellite Radio.
