MEG BAIRD – ” Furling “

Posted: January 27, 2023 in MUSIC

Happy Release Day to Meg Baird’s highly anticipated record, “Furling”. “Furling” moves through the breadth of Meg’s musical fascinations and the environments around them—edges of memory, daydreams spanning years, loose ends, divergent paths, secret conversations under stars—all led by a stirring, singular voice calling experience and enlightenment, elation, and ecstasy into bloom. 

At long last, Meg Baird will be releasing a new album with possibilties of going out on the road again—this time with a full backing band of captivating co-conspirators!

Deeply rooted in Sixties/Seventies English folk and progressive rock yet touching on Nineties trip-hop and electronica in places, ‘Furling’ is the fifth solo album from Meg Baird, the leader of American psychedelic folk act Espers among many other musical endeavours. It’s simultaneously her most intimate solo work yet, and also the most musically epic and band-led.

Since co-founding Philadelphia’s luminary psychedelic folk collective Espers, Meg Baird has steadily created a body of solo and collaborative work within folk, acoustic, electrified and underground music traditions. She has recorded with harpist Mary Lattimore, helped form Heron Oblivion as a drummer and vocalist, and has continued to create her own solo work featuring her beguiling guitar and songwriting. An index of observations, passions and humour in both lyric and musical form, emanates from Meg’s heart outwards to yours.
