Hey Rosetta!


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 created 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 taking an indefinite hiatus. The group carries a cultural significance in their home province, being one of two bands to have achieved mainstream success (the other being Great Big Sea) and holding an annual Christmas concert which has become a mainstay of the season for many Newfoundlanders. The province is a small and tight-knit community, many youth leave and return only during the holidays, the concert was an important social reunion event for long-separated friends.
