A gambler of wit, Rob Baird spins lyrical luck in his fourth record, 'After All' to find out what happens when you go looking for yourself in someone else. In the 2019 follow-up to his third 2015 record, Wrong Side of the River, Memphis-bred Baird smashes right into heartache, chasing losses just to end up winning back the love he never knew he was looking for.

“For me, until you get your heart broken as an adult, you don’t really know how to write anything meaningful. You can make it up…that works for a little while. I’m not saying you have to be completely unhinged to make music, but I think you do have to know what it feels like to be completely vulnerable,” explained Baird of the record. “Every emotion you feel in a breakup — anger, anguish, disappointment, lust — you’ll feel it as you listen.”

Recorded straight to tape, at Battletapes, an East Nashville studio under the direction of Jeremy Ferguson (Cage The Elephant, Andrew Combs, Lucie Silvas) — 'After All' combines the known with the unknown applying new processes with familiar relationships. Produced by long time friend and collaborator, Rick Brantley who did time on Music Row as well as in the trenches with the likes of John Hiatt and Brandi Clark; Texas-based musicians’ Austin ‘Woodrow’ Morgan and Z Lynch, 'After All' brings together a depth of sound only musicians playing together for a decade can make. According to Woodrow: “We’ve gone from hating each other to living together to playing together so much that we hated each other all over again. Somewhere along the way we figured out how to grow up and now after so much time spent talking about it, we have finally made a record together.”

Drawing inspiration from Lucinda Williams’ tender melodies to the raw chords of James McMurtry, Rob surrounded himself with the sounds and souls that have known him best to make his latest album. Shaped serendipitously and with the help of friends Burleson Smith, David Beck and Brian Douglas Phillips, the songs were crafted over a couple years at a kitchen table in Austin.
Thomas Csorba
Thomas Csorba
Thomas Csorba is an Americana artist from Houston, TX who grew up listening to artists like Townes Van Zandt, Buddy Holly, and Woodie Guthrie. Soon after immersing himself in these artists' work, he felt compelled to start making music of his own. He released his debut EP, "Kentucky", in the spring of 2014. With this release, he secures his place among the storied voices of folk and Americana music. Melancholy and nostalgic, this songs are written for old souls. Csorba's songs -- rustic, honest, and as mournful as they are sweet -- recall the best of the artists he admired as a kid. "Kentucky", in that great tradition, is the offering of a man both weary and hopeful, a traveller on a long journey home. With the release of his sophomore album "Hard Truths and Noble Lies" the following year, Csorba continues to show his skills both lyrically and vocally.

His debut full length record "From the Foxhole" hit the streets on March 24th, 2017. This record, being Csorba's first complete work, is a record intertwined within itself. It isn't just a collection of songs, but instead, Csorba honed in on the art of crafting one cohesive piece of art. This release is a stake in the ground, a cry from Csorba saying "i'm here, and I'm not going anywhere."
