Rob Baird is set to two release two new projects. Written and recorded during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, these albums find an artist in complete command of what he wants to say and, more importantly, how he wants to say it. ‘Anthems’ expands on Baird’s previous sound and blows the doors off just for good measure. Cooking with the Heartbreakers’ cool and riding a barely-on-the-tracks roller coaster of perpetual groove a la The Dukes, mixed with a little whiteknuckle recklessness of The Replacements and the understated cool of early Lyle Lovett, Baird harnesses this new untamed sound with...

Rob Baird is set to two release two new projects. Written and recorded during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, these albums find an artist in complete command of what he wants to say and, more importantly, how he wants to say it. ‘Anthems’ expands on Baird’s previous sound and blows the doors off just for good measure. Cooking with the Heartbreakers’ cool and riding a barely-on-the-tracks roller coaster of perpetual groove a la The Dukes, mixed with a little whiteknuckle recklessness of The Replacements and the understated cool of early Lyle Lovett, Baird harnesses this new untamed sound with a natural ease and off the cuff natural vocal ability, giving this mismash of sounds and influences an eye to the storm to rage around. ‘They Call It Memphis’ is another animal altogether. In service to his previous material, Baird decided to revive and reinvigorate some of his earlier, critically and popularly acclaimed material---crowd pleasers like ‘Dreams & Gasoline’ and ‘Same Damn Thing’ and the always emotional show-stopper ‘Can’t Stop Running’. Bringing back the same recording team as ‘Anthems’ and convening at the legendary Ardent Studios in the singer’s hometown of Memphis in August 2021, Baird and Co. (now christened The Hard Lucks after Baird’s own independent record label) rage even harder, deeper, truer, as if hell-bent on revenge for some wrong he hasn’t righted, barrelling toward a greatness that may well already be at hand.
