The Discography

This blog is a discography for all the music Gavin Baker has released since 1998. Pretty much mos of the music can be found on Grooveshark but you'll have to search for it yourself. Where a producer has been involved in the recording I have included their names, otherwise the music has been produced by the musicians involved. I have also included pictures of the record covers when I have found them.
