Hey Rosetta! Biography
Since being formed by Tim Baker after returning home to St. John's in 2005, Hey Rosetta! has quickly grown from a travelers suitcase full of lyrics and string parts to a critically acclaimed band hailed for their intelligent songs, powerful recordings, energized and evoking live shows. The band has created a layered sound by incorporating piano, violin and cello with traditional rock instrumentation with Tim's soaring vocals. They have toured extensively in Canada as well as in Australia, France, UK, and the US. Hey Rosetta! won three East Coast Music Awards in 2009, as well as the CMW Indie Award for Best Album, XM's Verge Award for Best Album, and was shortlisted for the renowned Polaris Music Prize for their album "Into Your Lungs (and around in your heart and on through your blood)". Recorded in the dead of winter in two East Coast harbour towns with producer and singer-songwriter Hawksley Workman, "Into Your Lungs" began with a beautiful naivety and confidence. An off-the-stage feel and vigor reminiscent of the bands powerful live performances rooted the recording sessions. Late 2009 saw the release of the Red Songs 7" and a digital EP as well as the inclusion of another new song ("Old Crow Black Night Stand Still") on the CBC Radio 2 Great Song Quest compilation.
