As a singer-songwriter and high school band director, Adam Baxter’s professional life came to a halt in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All of his personal gigs were canceled and his students did not get to perform in their spring concerts or music festivals. To keep busy, Baxter set up a virtual writing session with Jordan Coaker (Quote The Raven, With Violet) which turned into his new single “These Days”. The song was recorded in 5 home “studios” across Newfoundland.
“All my gigs were cancelled, I couldn’t take my school ensembles on stage to perform at their Kiwanis/Spring Concerts and I wasn’t able to even really leave the house to see friends. It felt like I was in that movie Groundhog Day – The days and evenings were melting together and if I didn’t put my focus on something substantial, I knew I would have fallen into a dark place.”
I’m Tara and I’m a graphic designer from Newfoundland. 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.
