Justin Rutledge and Rob Baker on the Tragically Hip, fatherhood and why they teamed up on Passages
Originally published on May 29, 2019
Singer-songwriter Justin Rutledge and guitarist Rob Baker of the Tragically Hip join q's Tom Power for a performance and chat about working together on Rutledge's latest album, Passages.
The word "passages" is fitting for Rutledge at this time in his life as he recently got married, moved back home to Toronto and now has a baby on the way. It's an emotional time for Baker, too, after the death of his friend and bandmate, Gord Downie, in 2017.
Rutledge shares his thoughts on fatherhood and Baker tells us how it feels to be making music again. Passages comes out this week.
