A truly independent artist with a clear vision of what he wants sonically, visually, and emotionally, Virginia to Vegas, aka Derik Baker, is an American-born Canadian singer-songwriter.
After being discovered on YouTube, Baker was signed to Wax Records and released his first single “We Are Stars” in 2014. Baker is best known for his indie-pop choruses and sticky electronic melodies.
Baker’s brand new it’s a little complicated, but i’m okay EP, was made remotely from ideas that he had started at home or in hotel rooms, or even many years ago. They were put together, sent to friends, and sent back. His usual collaborators – Geoff Warburton and Mike Wise – returned to play their part with the addition of a few new writers who Baker worked with via voice notes.
Through a dreamy soundscape and catchy lyrics, Virginia To Vegas’ latest single “no excuses” reminds us to favour our hearts over our heads; laying it all out on the table expressing our true feelings for a love we fear to let go of.
Virginia To Vegas shares on the single,
“‘no excuses,” encompasses that feeling of being in love with one of your best friends. You finally tell yourself that you’re not going to continue making excuses as to why you should express how you feel, and take that leap of faith.”
