'TIME'...THE MUSIC [SONGS] THAT ARE THE DANCE OF TIME 2017 - 2019 (9 TRACKS)
There is a haunting quality to M.E. Baird’s music, a type of gothic blues noir that permeates the songs. Baird knows how to successfully balance the beauty and the despair on Time and as a result, this is an album that should fit nicely in the record collections of fans of songwriters such as Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen and Will Oldham." ★★★★ The Music (Australia)
'FALL'...GREIF, LOSS AND A DEFINING PERIOD 2012-2016 (8 TRACKS)
"The slowly developing, intimately held tracks, which are neither folk, nor country, but maybe a Leonard Cohen interpretation of both are meant for the small, dark, alone spaces of your life." ★★★★ Bernard Zuel, Sydney Morning Herald, 2016
'"Baird speaks of lost loves and scarred hearts, and while he paints life in a harsh light, he still finds something to hold onto, be it a memory or a dream not yet faded. This is folk; sad, bitter and beautiful.” ★★★★ Chris Martin, The Brag Magazine, Sydney, 2016
