Hey Rosetta! hails from the rocky and cold northeastern province of Newfoundland
and Labrador, Canada. In 2005, Tim Baker arrived home from a road trip with a
suitcase full of poems and melodies. Hey Rosetta! formed soon after with the addition
of a string section (cellist Romesh Thavanathan and violinist Kinley Dowling) and rhythm
section (bassist Josh Ward, drummer Phil Maloney and guitarist Adam Hogan). Since
then, they’ve blossomed into a powerful group whose explosive live shows have
earned them a devoted following.
The band’s new album, Seeds, was produced by Tony Doogan (Belle and Sebastian,
Mogwai, Wintersleep) and reveals a maturing lyrical depth and an adventurous musical
atmosphere rooted to the band’s passion for epic musical experiences. Seeds was shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize and the band received two CASBY nominations,
four ECMA nominations and a JUNO Award nomination for New Group of the Year.
