Well, finally some cool airplay again! Nice to see a resurgence of interest in the solo stuff since the lanch of the Monarch Trail project, which is still doing very well for us! Two broadcasts and podcasts coming up soon. The first one features the “Orion” album from 2000, and the other features a tune…

There will be a special UK radio broadcast from DJ Ian Fairholm featuring the Ken Baird/Sue Fraser “Orion” album coming up this fall–I’ll  put links here when it will be available on podcast. 🙂

Hi everyone, this is copied from the Monarch Trail website www.monarchtrail.com December 31st, 2016 For our year end post, I’m happy to report that the album is 99 percent finished, so the release date has been moved to February 2017. I really wanted to get it done for 2016, but final mix, mastering and artwork…

Wow, we got some great airplay on David Layton’s Sound Chaser podcast last week! To be one of the two Canadian keyboard players on this show is a great honour–the other is none other than Jim Gilmour of Saga—a band that I’ve enjoyed for years (just saw them perform the other night, actually). Please see…

Wow, just reading back to my last post from July 1st last year when we had just lost Chris Squire, and now six months later, David Bowie gone??? Still can’t believe it, especially since the new album is so strong *I planned to buy it when I heard the single a few months ago and…

Happy summer everyone, although it’s had a very sad start. On June 27th, the world lost Chris Squire. I can barely put into words how much his music and playing/singing meant (and will continue to mean) to me, and it’s incredibly sad that he died so young at 67. The only good thing is that…

Oh no, the Ken Baird site was hacked! So, we lost the old look to the site, but fortunately everything else remains intact. This is a temporary look to the site for now until we pick a new one, so some photos and colour will be back up. News with Monarch Trail stuff continues to…

Lots of great news over at http://www.monarchtrail.com/news/ ! We’ve made some important top 10 lists for 2014 and had some great radio play lately, so all is well in that camp. Even better news is that we’ll be recording in March! As I’ve said in other news items here, the Ken Baird “career” is on the…


January 2nd, 2014

I did update the Monarch Trail site a few times over December, but the poor Ken Baird site has sadly been neglected again. I will try to get here more often–there’s a New Year’s resolution for me! But there isn’t too much news for the “Ken Baird” releases lately in any case. Further Out was…

Sale at CDbaby! Basically, it’s 1 cent shipping anywhere in the world when you order a CD from December 1st to 3rd. So, it’s a great time to pick up a Ken Baird or Monarch Trail CD. Other friends use that site too, such as Steve Cochrane, John Mamone, Wilton Said, Druckfarben and more. Great…
