(June 6, 2021) One critical piece of success is resiliency. While travelling that long road of achieving a goal, it is almost expected that some bumps, lessons or detours will come along the way. 

In the case of the multi-faceted Houston-born, Nashville-based Gabe Baker, his detours have helped to shape his career into one that others can emulate. In addition to being a singer/songwriter, Baker is a worship leader, a fitness trainer, and a cellist. Such attributes undoubtedly helped to inspire his newest single, "Upside Down."

Guided by percussion finger snaps and his cello, Baker sets an empowering anthem that encourages others to keep moving forward. Lyrically, Baker acknowledges the challenges we all face from time to time, and does not mince experiences or trivialize them. Instead, Baker takes the power away from the negative situations by focusing on the rebound and recovery.

The measure of honestly is relatable and refreshing, as he joyfully sings about how he's been "flipped upside down...been let down, stepped on and looked over, but nothing or no one's ever gonna shut me down."  It's a musical illustration of a moment in time that can define a destiny and future, and Baker is confidently helping others maintain a level of optimism that is much needed.  

"Upside Down* is not only an upbeat mid-tempo cut that will be a part of a forthcoming EP release, but it is also a song that will help inspire people across multiple generations to not allow circumstances define them.  When Gabe Baker sings about not "going out but hanging around," it's not just a lyric to be memorized, but it's a life motto to be mastered.
