Based in Toronto, Rosanne Baker Thornley is an internationally recognized, award-winning singer/ songwriter who writes with an impressive and growing number of international emerging and established artists. RBT has been evolving and expanding her relationship with music (and writing) for quite some time. With her new album, Sorry I’m Late, to be released September 2022, she further delves into her craft, cultivating songs from an intensely personal space.
Like all the songs on Sorry I’m Late, “Because of Me,” is inspired by personal experience. This song is about someone who always arrived tangled, who willingly succumbed to a vulnerable version of themselves, and who left less tangled. It’s about changing that someone to their benefit and how those changes in them, while to the betterment of others in their life, challenges those same people. It’s about the realization and the risk to the person who is the impetus to their changing – and to the realization they’re working against themselves. That every heartfelt moment shared can’t change the inevitable outcome.
