Tim Baker is known as the writer and frontman of the much-acclaimed Canadian group, Hey Rosetta!. They are a Juno-nominated, Polaris-shortlisted, heavily-awarded band that created poetic, powerful alternative music for over a decade. Following the hiatus announcement of Hey Rosetta!, Baker released his beautiful debut solo album, Forever Overhead (Arts & Crafts) in April 2019. A blend of piano ballads with ebullient folk-rock tracks, the record is also brushed with the qualities of 70s singer-songwriters (think Jackson Browne and Randy Newman) and contemporaries like Feist, Leif Vollebekk, and The Barr Brothers. The organic blend of pop grooves and folk-rock is straightforward with curious undertones and provides a timeless backdrop for Baker’s vibrant lyricism. It was received with adoring ears by both music media and fans alike.
