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.
Bill MacKay
Bill MacKay
Bill MacKay is a musician and a musician's friend - a genial guitarist/composer/improviser based in Chicago who has energized the experimental folk, rock and avant scenes around the city with his polyglot approach to the guitar, combining the folk of Appalachia, the blues and gospel with rock, jazz, western-country and an array of eastern modes. Mackay's interest in this tactic - essentially, a personal blending of roots elements - has evidenced itself throughout his discography. On Esker, his third solo work and his Drag City debut, Bill takes it further with an album of all-original material performed entirely in consort with himself. Playing all the parts with guitars, glass slide, bass, piano and percussion, he deepens his hybrid-genre approach with both contrast and cohesion, creating warm, melodic narratives that draw on folk, psych and experimental rock modes.

Cory Hanson
The present climate calls for a revolution. Life calls for music, for lyric, and if you can somehow handle them without needing to possess them, they echo back again as life, vital in its total excess. Cory Hanson's debut solo album, The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo emerges from a panic, a car wreck, shivering with sudden liquefaction. But the images are plain, arrayed in light. This illumination of organized understanding provides alacrity in these dark times, even just for a half hour of recorded music.
