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, which have awarded him critical acclaim and several platinum certifications.

In 2018, Baker expanded his reach internationally, co-writing the single “IDWK” with blackbear and DVBBS.
