Local musical hot spot, BeMo's on Madison Ave. in Bay City, MI, is set to welcome Scott Baker & The Universal Expressions for their CD release party Friday, April 12th.

Founded in just 2005, they have become known as an eclectic mix of acoustic, rock, jazz and electric melodies and refuse to be pegged into one musical category.

Drawing on influences from the likes of Black Crowes, as well as many, many others, the band has managed to produce a soulful, hip and fresh CD, which is sure to please musical tastes of all kinds.

"It is a varied platter of music from our generation that takes you on a journey," said band leader Scott Baker. "We have nothing like that up here in the North Mid-West that tells that kind of story or weaves threads so harmoniously and paints our picture with such assurance."

Their goal to compile this story for its listeners was not only met, but exceeded. As it turns out, it was enough material to be two volumes long.

Baker remarks, "The band is hoping for a fall release for Vol. 2 and plans on getting the word out about the organic style of music we have conjured up after eight years of performing."
