Adam Baxter releases video for new song, Poor, Cold, Hungry, Happy

Newfoundland’s own, Adam Baxter may of only released his debut album, Clean Hands, last year but he’s already busy working on new material. Tonight he released a brand new video for one of those new songs called Poor, Cold, Hungry, Happy.The video is recorded by Jonny Rawkhard with help from Conrad Layden on Duckworth Street in St. John’s.

“The song is about a fictional couple that is living in Newfoundland during our current difficult economic and political times. Most people are scared about world issues. But this couple is too caught up in the joy or their love for one another and living in such a beautiful area of the world. They have no cares or regards to the tough times.” Adam goes into dept about what the song is about in the description of the video so be sure to read before you hit that play button.

Cool, Poor, Hungry, Happy

This is my song "Cold, Poor, Hungry, Happy".The video is recorded by the amazing Johnny Rawkhard with help from Conrad Layden. This was filmed on Duckworth Street in St. John's on February 4th, 2017. The song is about a fictional couple that is living in Newfoundland during our current difficult economic and political times. Most people are scared about world issues. But this couple is too caught up in the joy or their love for one another and living in such a beautiful area of the world. They have no cares or regards to the tough times. I believe that walking down Duckworth Street in St. John's is a perfect fit for this video because it is obvious that there are so many people who are just so happy to be in Newfoundland with their loving friends, family and coworkers during these difficult and somewhat concerning times. The moral of this song is that money isn't everything and the news can only scare you if you let it. I hope you enjoy <3

I’m Tara and I’m a graphic designer from Newfoundland. In 2004, I found out who Hedley were are they became my first favorite band and 11 years later they still have that top spot for me. I am very fortunate to live in a city where there is a ton of amazing musicians. I’ve grown very fond of the local music scene in St. John’s and some of my favorite bands are ones I’ve met through going to local shows.
