Hey Rosetta! embark on a North American tour today, which will see them playing various dates with The Jezabels and Yukon Blonde. The band recently stopped by Daytrotter to perform four tracks off their Polaris Music Prize nominated album, Seeds, a session which can be heard here.


Based out of Newfoundland, the band makes a powerful statement with its soaring melodies, exquisite arrangements and rollicking string sections. Having toured nationally with Gomez and Bombay Bicycle Club, as well as playing Bonnaroo, Sasquatch, Hangout Festival and Lollapalooza, Hey Rosetta! have an inspiring blend of contemporary rock and folk that explodes with a sentimental flourish off the stage.


Time Out recognizes their “deeply earnest indie-pop pathos,” comparing the band to Bon Iver, while Consequence of Sound writes, “the archetypal song structure ensconces listeners into a defined emotion in songwriter Tim Baker’s mind, and with the backing of the string section, he kindles a small campfire and delves into a concept.”


Check out their poignant new video for “Young Glass” here and be sure to catch one of their incredible live shows this fall.

“Between wistful vocals and beautiful string arrangements, it’s safe to say the Juno-nominated ensemble deserves that exclamation point.”
Teen Vogue

“The band has won multiple awards, including album of the year in Canada; but that’s not what attracted me to Hey Rosetta. For me, it was the joy in the songs…I’m a bit of a sucker for a mandolin and a kick drum.” Bob Boilen (NPR)
