Hey Rosetta! is from St. John's, Newfoundland. The group is Tim Baker, Adam Hogan, Phil Maloney, Josh Ward, Romesh Thavanathan, Kinley Dowling and Mara Pellerin. Founded in 2005 after Baker returned from a road trip with a briefcase full of songs, the band has amassed a devoted following for their intimate songwriting and energized live shows.
Into Your Lungs (and around in your heart and on through your blood) was released in 2008 and gained the band a worldwide following. Their 2011 album, Seeds, brought the band further critical acclaim, including a JUNO nomination for New Group of the Year. Like it’s predecessor, it was short listed for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize.
The band also released a holiday EP, A Cup Of Kindness Yet, in late 2012.
Hey Rosetta! recently released their fourth album, entitled Second Sight. It was recorded in Montreal with producer Marcus Paquin (Local Natives, Arcade Fire, The National) and features the song Soft Offering (For The Oft Suffering). They are on tour now across North America.
