Solo into the Winter Heat (Bill Baird, Sparrow House, Eldridge Rodriguez)

Spotlight on Solo Artists
Cookin' up some
INTENSE HEAT this winter!

This special edition of Indieland News focuses on two solo/side acts from Austin and another from right here in Boston. These individuals are in some very talented bands and each threatens to be one of your new favorites solo acts this winter.

2006 Indie Musician of the Year?
Nothing should shock or surprise when it comes to
The Creative Mind of Bill Baird

The bassist for Austin's SOUND TEAM has had quite a year.
The Indie rocker, turned film director, turned sound engineer, is now a solo artist.

Ok - Sound Team is definitely one of my top albums from the last year. That wasn't enough for band bassist Bill Baird. He remixed some of the band's tracks - some highly desirable tracks. He released not one, but two albums of his own this year: Sunset and the instrumental Silence!
My Woman Hates My Guts - Bill Baird
Surfing (instrumental) - Bill Baird

Buy the amazing "Sunset" and "Silence" albums for pocket change (just $7 each) on
the Bill Baird page.

Bill Baird is always producing videos and short films (look his work on YouTube) - and even now working on a video (thanks for the music video sneak peak Bill) for friend and fellow musician Red Hunter. That's one hell of a year.

Don't miss my October Interview w Baird & Sound Team drummer Jordan Johns. Good stuff!

Wild on Bass - Sound Team's Blonde Bill is an Entertainer.

Two BONUS TRACKS from Bill Baird with SOUND TEAM
