Tim Baker: Dance

With his indie-rock band Hey Rosetta! on hiatus, the East Coaster is pursuing a solo career. Based on piano and voice only, this new track is beautifully haunting, with Baker's resonant voice in fine form.

Tim Baker: Dance

By Kerry Doole

Tim Baker - "Dance" (Indie): As frontman of Juno-nominated and Polaris Music Prize-shortlisted East Coast collective Hey Rosetta! for over a decade, Baker earned a large national following.


He is now pursuing a solo career, and this new song video has a much sparser feel than the dynamic indie-rock of his earlier outfit.

Featuring just piano and voice, this haunting tune captures the emotionally expressive quality of Baker's vocals. In a press release, he explains that "'Dance' is a song about wanting to dance and move and connect with someone, but it comes from a place of stillness and disconnection. So it’s also about mental health, and living and ageing in a time when technology increasingly makes watchers out of doers."

In February, Baker travelled across Canada to play a handful of solo shows in some offbeat venues: a bookstore, a living room, a ski lodge, the rink bar during a curling tournament, and a hotel room Tim lived in for a week with the challenge being to road-test his new song in front of small, attentive audiences.

Look for these songs on a five-song live video EP/doc style mini-series entitled The Side Door Sessions.  A new full-length studio album is anticipated in early 2019.

Baker will support Bahamas on shows in Kingston, Toronto, Ottawa, Kitchener, and Ottawa soon.
