August 3, 2020
Dive Bar Rock Star!

Dive Bar Rock Star! will take you from a rocking party to a romantic, one night stand. Some songs are very heart felt and emotional and right when you’re ready to tear up Baines picks it back up again. He guides you through this journey quite comfortably, however, with his soulful and unique voice and it is quite a ride indeed. This album is lyrically very diverse, too. Baines gives us an honest (sometimes really honest) glimpse into his life but has a way of making them intriguing, desperate, sexy and sometimes hilarious but always entertaining. His self deprecating charm lures you in every time.
