Hey Rosetta! plays the type of music that makes you stand outside of yourself. Makes you want to go out and prove yourself, “…you don't know me, or my purpose or my promise, i got promise…”. (“Trish’s Song”, Second Sight)
The band has amassed a loyal and devoted following from their unique brand of alternative/indie/folk/rock music. Hey Rosetta! is comprised of Baker, Adam Hogan (guitars, vocals), Josh Ward (bass, keyboards, vocals), Phil Maloney (drums, percussion, vocals), Romesh Thavanathan (keyboards, guitars, cello, vocals), Kinley Dowling (violin, vocals) and Mara Pellerin (vocals, French horn, trumpet). The band’s last two albums, Into Your Lungs and Seeds, were short-listed for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize. In 2012 they received a Juno nomination for New Group of the Year.
The band is celebrating the release of their new record Second Sight (out now via Sonic Records) with a spring tour. The album is receiving critical acclaim—Vice’s Noisey states that it’s “music worth screaming about” and NOW Magazine adds, “Calling it their pinnacle might be premature, but Second Sight is so damn invigorating that it may just be their best yet.” Second Sight was recorded at Montreal’s MixArt studio and produced by Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, Stars, The National).
