Alexander "Ace" Baker is a composer and music producer in the hills of Sherman Oaks, California. He has scored the majority of films for director John Putch over a fifteen year working relationship, most recently "Route 30, Too!", a comedy starring Beth Behrs of 2 Broke Girls. Ace is also a staff writer-producer for Firstcom / Universal Music Group, delivering libraries of custom production music for film and television from 1997-present.
Ace created the driving rock-electronica theme and underscore for ESPN's American Dragster, and his music has been featured in literally hundreds of shows like Burn Notice, Dancin' with the Stars, American Pie - The Book of Love, "The Beach Boys - An American Family", and many others. He wrote and produced I'm On My Way, the end title song to "Barbie as Princess and the Pauper", with vocalist Sara Niemietz. His piano work is featured in many of his scores, like his rendition of Scott Joplin's "Maple Leaf Rag" in the film "Route 30", under the hilarious comedy performance by Emmy award winner Dana Delaney and David DeLuise.
Growing up in Tucson, Arizona, Ace Baker studied classical piano as a child, but occassionaly had his wrist slapped for improvising new endings. He played keyboards in rock bands before relocating to Los Angeles, where he enjoyed success as a touring keyboardist in bands like REO Speedwagon, Mother's Finest, Iron Butterfly, and The Supremes.
One of his earliest memories, as a small child, was being captivated and intrigued by the power of music to affect feelings. It is a wonderment that remains to this day.
