Singer-songwriter Adam Baxter has been performing steadily in Newfoundland and Labrador for several years, but a recent relocation to central Newfoundland was what made his first full-length album, Clean Hands, possible.

Baxter had performed a concert at Citadel House, the busy performing venue and recording studio operated by Dean Stairs in Lewisporte.

"After I did a gig there, he [Stairs] was talking to me about how he wanted to start a record label," said Baxter.

Baxter said Stairs then signed him on as the first artist on the Citadel House record label.

"So at that point, we started brainstorming on what we wanted to do for an album."

Baxter said Clean Hands features 12 of his favourite original songs.
