Formed in St. John's, Newfoundland, in 2005 around the talents of Tim Baker (vocals, piano, guitar), Adam Hogan (guitar), Josh Ward (bass), Phil Maloney (drums), Kinley Dowling (violin), and Romesh Thavanathan (cello), explosive indie rock sextet Hey Rosetta! craft emotionally resonant rock anthems that echo Brit-pop outfits like Hope of the States and the Veils while channeling the orchestral rock of Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene. Hey Rosetta! released their debut self-titled EP in 2005 followed by the full-length Plan Your Escape in 2006, both of which received positive critical and commercial response in their native Canada. In 2008 the band released Into Your Lungs (And Around in Your Heart and on Through Your Blood), produced by legendary Canadian singer/songwriter Hawksley Workman. Seeds followed in 2011.
