Since it was formed by Tim Baker after returning home to St. John’s in 2005, Hey Rosetta! has quickly grown from a travellers suitcase full of lyrics and string parts to a critically acclaimed band hailed for their intelligent songs, powerful recordings, energized and evoking live shows. They have created a layered sound by incorporating piano, violin and cello with traditional rock instrumentation. 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.
