In June of 2019, M.E. Baird released his 4th full length offering entitled ’TIME’ followed by a national tour with full band. However, the tour was cancelled two months in when
M.E. Baird was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. He immediately started on treatment in September followed by surgery in March 2020 – just as the world was descending into to what would become the COVID-19 pandemic. However, M.E. Baird has faced more than his fair share of adversities, that include grief, loss, and ongoing battles with mental health — each one cultivating more resilience. He is definitely not one to be easily defeated. While still receiving intermittent and ongoing treatment for his cancer he has already begun writing and recording new demos, created music videos for selected tracks from TIME as well as some virtual and intimate live performances. He has also found more time for making art and drawing. 2020 may well become his most productive year yet.
