About the artist
Hey Rosetta! was a Canadian seven-piece indie rock band from St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador and led by singer/songwriter Tim Baker. Known for their energized live shows, the band creates a large, layered sound by incorporating piano, violin, cello, and brass into the traditional four-piece rock setup. On October 13, 2017, the group announced via a lengthy Facebook post that they would be going on an indefinite hiatus. The group carries a cultural significance in their home province, being one of two bands to have achieved mainstream success and holding an annual Chirstmas concert which has become a mainstay of the season for many Newfoundlanders. Being a small and tighknit community, and one many youth leave and return to only during the holidays, the concert became an important social reunion event for long-separated friends and acquitances prior to the more directly family-oriented Christmas holidays.
