Hey Rosetta!

Momentum keeps building for Hey Rosetta!, one of the most talented bands on Canada's independent music scene. With a solid run on the national campus charts, critical praise across the board and a successful album release and tour in tow, Hey Rosetta! were honoured again with the prize for Best Album at the 2008 XM Verge Awards in Toronto.

After they rock POP Montreal, the band are heading down to New York for CMJ and then setting out on a series of consecutive tours across Canada with Stars, Two Hours Traffic, and Hawksley Workman this fall.

Riding on the waves of their acclaimed live show and 2007's "Plan Your Escape" EP, Hey Rosetta! surge forward with "Into Your Lungs (and around in your heart and on through your blood)".

Based in St. John's, NL, the six-piece group is comprised of Tim Baker (vocals/piano/guitar), Adam Hogan (guitar), Josh Ward (bass), Phil Maloney (drums), Kinley Dowling (violin), and Romesh Thavanathan (cello).

Recorded in the dead of winter in two East Coast harbour towns with producer and singer-songwriter Hawksley Workman, "Into Your Lungs" began with a beautiful naivety and confidence. An "off the stage" feel and vigor reminiscent of the bands powerful live performances rooted the recording sessions and everything was bred from and expanded from there. Conceptually, the new record is a shift from Tim's earlier compositions often written in isolation within his bedroom, to a new depth and space that comes from experiencing life on the road as a touring band. The new record packs more grit while allowing the bands infectious energy and vulnerability to flow freely. Highly Recommended!
