Born and raised in Memphis, TN, Rob Baird began his career sneaking into juke joints and landing  between-set gigs at local clubs before he was old enough to drink. By his early twenties, he’d  scored a Nashville publishing deal, but an insatiable desire for creative independence  eventually led him to Austin, TX, where he spent the better part of the next decade grinding it  out on the road, releasing six critically acclaimed studio albums on his own label and sharing  dates with the likes of Jason Isbell, Nathaniel Rateliff, and Billy Joe Shaver. Along the way, he  would earn praise everywhere from Rolling Stone to the Wall Street Journal, land songs in TV shows including Yellowstone and Nashville, and rack up nearly 100 million streams across  platforms. 

Baird’s latest album, Burning In The Stars, is undoubtedly his finest, laying it all on the line  with raw, vulnerable reflections on hope and loss, faith and resilience, heartbreak and  redemption. The songs are lean and compact, cutting to the quick with surgical precision, and  the performances are similarly direct, fueled by earnest, melodic arrangements that call to  mind everything from Tom Petty and Bob Seger to Lucinda Williams. The result is a cinematic  mix of alt-country intimacy and rock and roll ecstasy that refuses to shy away from pain in its  pursuit of growth, a masterfully mature work of lyrical and sonic craftsmanship built around  the promise that it’s never too late to become who we’re meant to be.

Parker Twomey is a country-folk songwriter and Americana road warrior whose music blends timeless sound with modern sensibilities. Raised by artistic parents in Dallas, he began playing music at ten, learning guitar from his dad and piano from his grandmother. Twomey attended the prestigious Booker T. Washington High School, where he honed his skills as a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. He joined his first band at ten, performing around Deep Ellum and developing a passion for music. After high school, he worked at Modern Electric Sound Recorders, where he assisted with engineering and played keys on recordings. Impressed by his talent, Paul Cauthen invited him to join his touring band, leading to performances at iconic venues like Red Rocks and the Grand Ole Opry. Twomey's debut solo album, All This Life, reflects his coming-of-age experiences with candid lyrics and a blend of country and folk influences. Currently living in Nashville, he is working on his second album and touring.
