I’ve made a decision that the upcoming album will not be called a “Ken Baird” album but rather, it will have a band or project name to be announced later this month. The band features Chris Lamont on drums,  Dino Verginella on bass, Ken Baird on keyboards and vocals. Also appearing will be 3 guest guitarists: John Mamone, Kelly Kereliuk  and Steve Cochrane who have all done amazing work! So this month it’s onward with the mixing and recording backing vocals, plus Steve’s contributions on classical and acoustic guitars. Both John and Steve have recently released great solo albums, more info here: www.johnmamone.com www.spiritcompass.com

In other news I’ve just heard my good musician friend Jacob Moon will be opening for Marillion on their European tour this fall!!! I wish him all the best and wish I had the money to get over there! I’ve been lucky enough to have Jacob play guitar on several tracks of mine in the past including “Victoria Day” from Martin Road, “Dolphins” from Orion and “Into Night”/”Passing Secrets” from Fields. Great guitarist, writer and singer. Congrats Jacob! More info here: www.jacobmoon.com
