Who is Dan Baird?

Daniel John "Dan" Baird is an American singer-songwriter, musician and producer. He is best known as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist from the chart-topping 80s rock band The Georgia Satellites. Baird formed The Georgia Satellites in 1980 and left the band in 1990 to pursue a solo career. He is often credited as a pioneer in Cowpunk and Alt-country music, which combines elements of Rock with Country, outlaw country and punk rock.

Baird tours and records with his band Homemade Sin, which features three ex-members of The Georgia Satellites, including bassist Keith Christopher and drummer Mauro Magellan. Homemade Sin also includes guitarist Warner E. Hodges, who tours and records with Jason & the Scorchers.

Homemade Sin performs a mixture of Baird's solo material in addition to the hits and fan favorites from his years with The Georgia Satellites. To achieve a similar classic tube amplifier sound with Homemade Sin, Baird relies heavily on a vintage setup very similar to what was used during his tenure with The Georgia Satellites. Creating confusion for some fans, there is a reformed version of The Georgia Satellites featuring original guitarist Rick Richards and bassist Rick Price, who joined the group to replace original bassist Keith Christopher, who left the band prior to their fame.
