Diversions :: Bill Baird/Sunset on Songwriting

(Diversions, a recurring feature on Aquarium Drunkard, catches up with our favorite artists as they wax on subjects other than recording and performing.)

Bill Baird and Sunset have steadily become one of my favorite exports out of Austin, TX. As prolific as he is talented, Baird and co. seemingly, and quietly, release a record, 7", EP, etc every several months on Austin's own burgeoning Autobus Records. The label is poised to release not only a new Sunset LP (Loveshines but The Moon Is Shining Too) but a Baird solo album as well (Silence!) After the jump Baird takes us through the highly personal, and equally mysterious, process that is songwriting.

Only the good shit. Aquarium Drunkard is powered by its patrons. Keep the servers humming and help us continue doing it by pledging your support.
