Baker studied music at Mount Royal College and the Toronto Conservatory before starting a long career as a theatre organist. He moved to New York City and worked as house organist for the Rivoli, the Rialto, and finally the Paramount, over a period of 22 years, interrupted only by a year at a major theatre in London in 1933-34. Baker also dabbled in songwriting, with titles like, "You're the Only Pebble on the Beach." In the late 1950s, he became a touring artist for Conn Organs, and recorded at least one album for Capitol. Baker's rendition of "The Third Man Theme" is included in Capitol's "Ultra Lounge" compilation, "Organs in Orbit."
