Now this is how you kick off a show in Atlantic time. East Coast rocker Adam Baldwin swings through studio q with his first full-length solo album, No Telling When

The gifted singer, songwriter, and guitarist — best known for performing with Matt Mays's band — performs three songs live throughout the show: DaylightRehtaeh and Sparrow Song



He also sits down with guest host Piya Chattopadhyay to discuss his politically-charged lyrics, which tackle everything from Canada's federal election to rape culture. In reflecting on the latter, Baldwin offers his musical tribute to Rehtaeh Parsons with a certain amount of self consciousness. 

"I tend to think that men speak too much. We say things and talk about things that we don't understand."
