- Songwriter Tim Baker releases new EP 'Survivors.'
Songwriter Tim Baker has released his new EP Survivors. The five-track EP is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, digitally and on 10” vinyl via Arts & Crafts. Baker recently performed the title-track as part of CBC q’s Live at Home series.
The EP has four original songs and a cover of Randy Newman’s “Texas Girl At The Funeral Of Her Father” to convey a consistent message of the everyday strength and courage it takes just to make it to that place where you can see all that is good around you.
“All the songs center around loss and hope and I hope you connect,” says Baker. “The Randy Newman song was originally commissioned by a film director friend of mine (Jordan Canning) for her film which has since (of course) been covid-stalled. But the song is so good, so succinctly, poignantly, heart-crackingly good, and in such a heart-cracking predicament here (I wish it was succinct) I thought it fit the EP well.”
Baker’s songwriting strengths have shined earning him Songwriter of the Year JUNO nomination for his 2019 solo debut album, Forever Overhead and seven East Coast Music Award nominations.
Survivors is now available on music streaming platforms.
