Hanley (Annette) & the Baird (Kirsty) have worked together for 10 years. Mhairi (Violin) joined around 2012, Kerry (Drums) more recently at the start of 2019 and Stephen (Bass) joined 6 months later and is getting his head around being the only man in the band.
Kirsty Baird & Annette Hanley are the writers in the band. They write together and on their own and are influenced by bands and writers such as The Pretenders, Neil Diamond, Blondie and Texas. They both led similar musical lives, working their way through Edinburgh and Scottish venues until they met in 2007 and collaborated together and never looked back.
Hanley and the Baird are also the band that plays with the Sing in the City choirs. They arrange the shows, sets and rehearsals and have sold out theatres all over Scotland.
The song below is Just another break up song written by Kirsty Baird. It was filmed at the Scottish Portrait Gallery and included the Aw Blacks and some extras from the other Sing in the City choirs.
