Meg Baird’s last decade would be remarkable by any artist’s standards. She co-founded and recorded three albums with Espers, one of the most distinctively mysterious acts of the century’s first decade. She recorded two solo LPs: Dear Companion and Seasons on Earth. She also collaborated with Will Oldham, Kurt Vile, Sharon Van Etten and Steve Gunn, and toured with Bert Jansch.
And after more than a decade as a fixture in Philadelphia’s boiling-over musical scene, Meg moved west to San Francisco. There she joined forces with members of Comets on Fire and Assemble Head to form the moody and thunderous Heron Oblivion. Amid this flurry of activity she also managed to record Don’t Weigh Down the Light, due June 2015 via Wichita Recordings.
