About this Event

At the end of 2017, twelve years after their inception, the multi-award winning band, Hey

Rosetta! went on hiatus, after selling 10,000 tickets to five farewell shows. For the band’s

principal songwriter and lead vocalist Tim Baker, this was the start of a new chapter.

On his debut solo album Forever Overhead, Baker warmly welcomes you to it. The first

words we hear him sing, on the first single “Dance,” is akin to a toast: “here’s to the other

side.” What follows are eleven songs that centre on kinship and show that Baker’s sharp

songwriting, 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 (Feist, Leif

Vollebekk, The Barr Brothers). Produced by Marcus Paquin (The National, Local Natives),

Forever Overhead blends piano ballads with ebullient folk-rock tracks featuring Liam O’Neill

(Suuns), Ben Whiteley (The Weather Station), as well as Mishka Stein & Joe Grass (Patrick

Watson).

In the album’s opening track “Dance,” Baker moves alongside soft piano chords as buoyant,

70s pop style instrumentation and a piercing guitar riff steadily build, bolstering his words of

longing. He sings of connectivity and the tender emotions that are coupled with glances

across a gym’s confetti-lined linoleum floor, the air thick with potential. Like Forever

Overhead as a whole, Baker brings beauty and hope into listeners’ lives.
