M.E. BAIRD, AUSTRALIAN SINGER-SONGWRITER (SONGWRITING, CO-PRODUCTION CREDITS/LIST)

 

Deeply emotive, M.E. Baird is driven by emotion. Whether in the carefully crafted lyrics, the music itself or his lamenting singular voice, emotion drips from everywhere, it trickles down walls and pools on the floor. It aches and hurts...and it’s beautiful.’  - Rhythms Magazine

PROFILE:

M.E. Baird is indeed a highly respected Australian singer-songwriter, musician, visual artist and educator with an impressive body of work spanning more than two decades. He is also a former academic with a background in art and architecture.  Songwriting and music represent his first true love and main vehicle for expression. However, he is equally passionate about and inspired by art, literature, and cinema.  Born and raised in Frankston, a working class bay side town an hour south of Melbourne, Victoria. M.E. Baird has lived in many places since, each a unique chapter in life and art. He currently calls the historic township of Bangalow in the lush hinterland of Northern New South Wales home. 

M.E. Baird has been writing songs, composing music, producing music, fronting bands and performing solo since 1989.  M.E. Baird is deeply inspired by the work of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Patti Smith, David Lynch, William Faulkner, Jim Jarmusch, Tim Burton, Lou Reed and John Cale.  M.E. Baird has always been fascinated with the darker more gothic side of expression, particularly the sonic elements of light and shade and the power of words, story and a well crafted lyric.  He has written and recorded five full-length albums, toured extensively and has contributed songs to soundtracks and composed original music for film and screen art projects.
