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.

"Lost between towns, lost between loves, and told in a musical language lost in time. The textures of the 70's country folk era—the melancholic chords, the mild volume, tasteful percussion treatments, and swooning melodies re-imagine human memory in song."
-Saving Country Music

“The unique mixture of folk, Americana, and country, leave you wanting more at the end of every track."
-Texas Music Pickers

Texas reared Americana artist, Ryan Scott Travis, reverently ties together the earthy reflections of fellow songwriters Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt with melancholic sounds of early 70's Top 40. Shortly after moving to Nashville, Travis recorded his debut full length album, The Guadalupe Breakdown (2015), creating a modern cosmic-cowboy atmosphere unique to anything being made today. Produced by GRAMMY® award winning producer, Mitch Dane, the project was released to critical acclaim. The hit track “Yellow Rose My Darling,” featured on the record, has garnered hundreds of thousands of streams across multiple streaming platforms, and in 2017, the track was featured on Netflix Original series, The Ranch. Travis is currently working on his anticipated sophomore album.
