Meg Baird
Meg Baird
Meg Baird’s last decade would be remarkable by any artist’s standards. She co-founded and recorded three albums with Espers followed by three solo LPs for Drag City: Dear Companion and Seasons on Earth and most recently Don't Weigh Down the Light. Like Meg’s previous LPs (and much of Espers output,) the foundation of Don’t Weigh Down the Light is her lyrical, precise, and propulsive fingerstyle guitar work and a voice that’s alternately soaring, tender, soothing, and deep with mystery. Meg has collaborated with Will Oldham, Kurt Vile, Sharon Van Etten and Steve Gunn, and toured with Bert Jansch.
Mary Lattimore
Mary Lattimore
Mary Lattimore is a harpist living in Los Angeles. She experiments with her Lyon and Healy Concert Grand harp and effects. Her solo debut, “The Withdrawing Room”, was released in 2013 on Desire Path Recordings.

Mary also writes harp parts for songs and recordings, performing and recording with such great artists as Meg Baird, Thurston Moore, Sharon Van Etten, Jarvis Cocker, Kurt Vile, Steve Gunn, Ed Askew and Fursaxa.

Mary has been a part of soundtrack projects including the Valerie Project, Lopapeysa, a film by David Kessler set in Iceland, and the film score for Marina Abramovic: the Artist is Present, a documentary about the artist.

In March 2013, she accompanied Nick Caves beautiful horse soundsuits for the 100th anniversary of Grand Central Station in New York City.

Her 2014 record Slant of Light with guitarist/synth player/producer Jeff Zeigler was released by Thrill Jockey, which was followed by the two collaborating on a track for Ghostly Swim 2. Mary and Jeff also composed a score to Philippe Garrels 1968 experimental silent film Le Revelateur, and debuted it in Marfa, Texas along with the film. They have since performed it Chicago, Philadelphia, and early 2015 in Los Angeles.
