It is with deep sadness and regret that we announce the passing of Shadow Gallery vocalist, Michael A. Baker. Mike suffered a heart attack, Wednesday afternoon, October 29th, 2008. He was 45 years old. Mike was a founding member of Shadow Gallery and for the past 16 years, helped shape the sound of the band with his magical voice. Additionally, he made many appearances on rock records around the world. Those who knew him best were moved by his gentle spirit, sincere kindness , fun nature and passion for both music and sports. He was a warrior in the studio, a true professional. Mike was our friend, our singer and our brother. We loved him and will miss him enormously, but he will always be remembered in our hearts and through his music. "

 

I am in such shock. R.I.P. Mike. You will be sorely missed. :crying:

 

I remember messaging with him and the rest of the band on their Gallery Of Shadows forum. What a class act. :bowdown: Damn. Taken way before his time.

His gentle spirit showed through his voice. So calm and soothing, yet with such presence.

 

My prayer has gone out to his spirit.
