Knoxville-based singer-songwriter Erick Baker knows his way around a love song (he also writes and sings about hope, fear and loss). Xpress has been following his career since he debuted in 2008 with It's Getting Too Late To Say It's Early and opened for James Blunt at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium. It's taken Baker awhile to make his way back to Asheville (he's been busy releasing other albums, touring and performing for U.S. service members) but now, in advance of a new spring release, he'll play at the Altamont Theatre on Friday, Jan. 20. British singer-songwriter Callaghan also performs. 8 p.m., $10. http://myaltamont.com.
