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.

Toronto singer-songwriter Rosanne Baker Thornley joins us on Episode 661 of Folk Roots Radio to chat about her fabulous second album, the very personal “Sorry I’m Late”, a new 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. It’s that good. Although we can’t share all of our interview on this radio episode – which stretches into an excellent conversation about songwriting and mentorship, it is really worth checking out. We wrap up the rest of the episode with a tribute to Gordon Lightfoot who sadly left us recently. So many great songs, so many memories of a fantastic songwriter; we feature a few of our favourites, alongside a couple from his banjo-toting daughter Meredith Moon, and a lovely finale from Aengus Finnan. Remember, If you like the artists you hear on this show and want to support them, don’t just stream their music – BUY their music, and then you’ll really make a difference to their income at a time when it is becoming much more difficult to make a living as a musician.
