Canadian luminary Tim Baker, lead singer of Newfoundland’s Hey Rosetta!, released a new solo single and EP ‘The Eighteenth Hole Variations’ on 18th October via AWAL. His debut critically acclaimed solo album ‘Forever Overhead’ was released earlier this year. The EP features a stunning performance of album heartbreak track, The Eighteenth Hole, featuring Tim, Felicity Williams (of Bernice) and Nico Paulo (a solo musician in her own right and currently in Tim’s band) as a vocal trio. Currently on tour in the US on tour with Montreal’s indie-psyche-rock quartet, Half Moon Run, followed by a solo Canadian headline tour finally Tim brings his bass & drum trio to the UK in January 2020 for several dates kicking off on 22nd January at London’s Servants Jazz Quarters.
Tim’s solo album Forever Overhead showed that Baker’s sharp song writing, the heart of Hey Rosetta!, is as affecting as ever. When crafting the album, Baker drew from 70s songwriters, like Jackson Browne and Randy Newman, whose music filled his childhood home and from his contemporaries such as Feist and Half Moon Run. Produced by Marcus Paquin (The National, Local Natives), Forever Overhead blends piano ballads with bullient folk-rock tracks featuring Liam O’Neill (Suuns), Ben Whiteley (The Weather Station), as well as Mishka Stein & Joe Grass (Patrick Watson).
