Hillside Summer Festival 2018

July 13 - 15

Tim Baker

Tim Baker

Tim is best known as the writer and frontman of the much-acclaimed Newfoundland group, Hey Rosetta!. They are a Juno-nominated, Polaris-shortlisted, heavily-awarded band that's been creating poetic, powerful alternative music for over a decade. They've brought their sweeping, high-energy live show all over the world, year after year, playing major festivals, stadiums, theatres and clubs. In the fall of 2017, the band announced their hiatus, selling nearly 10,000 tickets in a short run of farewell shows, and returning Tim to a solo situation, much like how Hey Rosetta! began nearly 13 years ago. In the summer of 2017, Tim spent time in the studio with producer and close friend Marcus Paquin, narrowing down the over 30 songs into a single, cohesive record. The work they produced represents Tim at his core -- a wonderfully imaginative songwriter, a thoughtful poet, a playful arranger, and a technically profound musician. Tim will release this sure-to-be anticipated album some time in 2018. In the meantime, he'll be writing, recording, performing and building this new work into its fullest expression.
