Bio
Lead vocalist/guitarist, Jamie Baker, created 240 Loop on a Starbucks patio in the Fall of 2010 in Memphis, TN. Between 1992 - 2006, Jamie recorded 5 full length CD's and toured in the christian music industry opening for artists such as The Newboys, Rebecca St. James, Clay Crosse, Mark Blackwood and The Blackwood Brothers Quartet, Brothers Keeper, Code of Ethics, Jonathan Pierce, Skillet, Natalie Grant, Brian Free and Assurance, and many others. In September of 2006, Jamie changed directions and concentrated on using his vocal talents mostly around the Memphis, TN and surrounding area for weddings, corporate events, festivals, church music leadership, club dates, and acoustic performances at coffee houses (to many to name). This was an important time in his life which allowed him to recall the many styles of music that influenced him growing up and would encourage him to share his voice to those who be willing to listen ( styles from Motown, Stax, Disco, Funk, Country, Pop/Rock, Gospel, Jazz, R&B & even a little Hip Hop ). Jamie's latest creation, 240 Loop, consists of all those styles mentioned and the band continues to win audiences of all ages. Jamie also spends a great deal of time djing many events and receptions as well. He is extremely excited about the future of 240 Loop and the many doors of opportunity which wait up ahead.


Lead vocalist, Elizabeth Baker has a church choir background as a child moving up to teen years. Elizabeth also participated in many theatre productions as a vocalist. 240 Loop has allowed Elizabeth to show her vocal range capabilities while singing to wonderful audiences. 240 Loop is proud to have "the girl in the band"
