Tim Baker | Indie88 Soundcheck

Tim Baker performs songs from his new solo album Forever Overhead live at the Dakota Tavern.

In 2017, after twelve years together, multi-award winning outfit Hey Rosetta! broke indie fans hearts across Canada when they announced their decision to take an indefinite hiatus. But principal songwriter and vocalist Tim Baker has since begun a new a chapter, and has just released his first solo record Forever Overhead via Arts & Crafts.

“I felt free from the body of work I’d created with [Hey Rosetta!], the expectations people had of us, and what we expected of ourselves and I suppose you can hear that freedom, almost a lightness in the record,” Baker says in a press release.

Watch Tim Baker perform “Dance,” “Strange River,” and “All Hands” live at the Dakota Tavern in Toronto for Indie88’s Soundcheck sessions.
