Ka Baird is an American recording artist, multi-instrumentalist, producer and performer based in New York City. Baird is known and heralded for her raw, ecstatic, and boundary pushing live solo performances which often involve energetic and experimental body movements, vocal and mic techniques and flute playing.
Respires, the second solo album by Ka Baird, blurs the line between word and action, definition and possibility. Spirited yet restrained, bearing its wildly thrummed heart strings and inner calm alike, Respires ventures toward the unknown, charting the shifting ground of experimental music and the rewards born of risk.
Tapping the ecstatic energy and cathartic experience of Baird’s live sets, pushing the extremes of psychological and physical release, Respires represents an unquestionable leap for an artist already out on a limb. Ka Baird’s Respires will be released October 25, 2019 on vinyl and digital formats. A portion of the proceeds from this release will benefit The International Rescue Committee (IRC). Come! Mend!
Baird will be touring Europe throughout October, including a stop at Unsound’s Krakow festival. Learn more here
