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 distinctive and hypnotic bands of the century’s first decade. She also recorded three solo LPs for Drag City.


from song “Painter of Tygers” from her latest EP Ghost Forests

“Oh, Painter of Tygers
You told her that you can’t keep me here
Your name is like a messenger
Remembered from the distance
On the east side of the Feather Banks

I felt the Pacific try to turn me upside down

Windows and Everclear
In pieces upon the ground
In lovely pens
The soul winds down to
A voice that’s just hanging around”

– Meg Baird
