John Baker (1937-1997) was a musician and composer who worked in jazz and electronic music. He was educated at the Royal Academy of Music where he studied piano and composition. In 1960 he joined the BBC as a sound mixer, before transferring, in 1963, to the BBC Radiophonic Workshop where he remained until 1974. He was the most prolific of the early Workshop composers, where he specialised in reverse tape effects.

A jazz pianist, he brought a sense of rhythm to the Workshop which some of the other more mathematical composers lacked. His work included many signature tunes for BBC television, the soundtrack for the video game Toejam and Earl, and radio. He was also particularly interested in combining recorded electronic music with live musicians. 2. John Baker is composer and sound designer for video games.

He was born on March 8, 1961 in Wilton, Connecticut, USA. He is best known for composing the scores to the ToeJam & Earl games for the Sega Genesis/Megadrive. He currently works at Zynga as a sound designer and composer. He is also the keyboardist in The Dwaine Spurlin Band.
