HEARTFELT AND ENGAGING MUSIC
Award-wining singer songwriter Will Baird delivers modern, heartfelt songs with an engaging stage presence. He’s often described as “like James Taylor with an edge”, with a chiming musical mosaic background created with a guitar looper.
Bright, warm vocals. Resonant guitar. A unique harmonica style and mesmerizing guitar loops. In live shows, they all bring life to Will's exceptional songwriting, “wrapped around original ideas and strong hooks” (Nashville Songwriters Association).
Will's shows captivate audiences with a broad variety of styles, including both sensitive ballads and the up tempo use of a guitar looper. Audience engagement includes harmonic singing, howling, clapping, call-and-response, audience invitations to join Will on stage and more.
He “bares his soul” (Norwalk Hour) with “a landscape of cinematic lyrics” (WPKN Bridgeport), and early in his career he shared the bill with numerous national artists such as Suzanne Vega, Tracy Chapman, Bill Staines and Livingston Taylor.
