Join us on Folk Roots Radio Overtime for our full conversation with Toronto based singer-songwriter Rosanne Baker Thornley, who chats about her fabulous second album – the very personal “Sorry I’m Late”, a recording that arrived twenty-eight years after her debut, “Courage”. Sorry I’m Late is a fantastic album with a wonderful cinematic feel and one that really connects with the listener. It deserves to be heard by as many people as possible. As well as reflecting on her music and the making of Sorry I’m Late, the extended version of our interview also includes a great discussion with Rosanne about songwriting and mentorship. “I love that I am able to step behind artists’ eyes and write songs from many perspectives and genres. From singer-songwriter to punk, I have a long history of collaborating, performing and writing. I lean in to understand the hearts of the artists who are sitting in front of me.” For more information about the music of Rosanne Baker Thornley, visit rbtsong.com.
