Scottish four-piece influenced by the traditional music of the West Highlands.
Tide Lines are a 4 piece band originally from the Highlands of Scotland. Whilst their music is heavily influenced by and rooted in the places they grew up in they produce a highly eclectic sound. Imagine a 70’s Bruce Springsteen but with bagpipes and electronics in the E-Street band and you’re probably just about there!
Initially formed by 2 ex-Skipinnish members Robert Robertson (singer) and Ross Wilson (piano) Tide Lines emerged just over a year ago with the addition of Alasdair Turner (guitar & bagpipes) and Fergus Munro (drums). They released their Far Side of the World single in 2016 and its lyrical theme with the connection between youth and location also forming the basis for their first full length album Dreams We Never Lost released in June 2017, which featured Anthony Thistlewaite (original Waterboy and current Saw Doctor).
A fervent online fanbase has been growing for Tide Lines and not only ensured their Celtic Connections show in January 2018 sold out super-fast it also resulted in their music quickly racking up in excess of 350,000 single track streams across Spotify, Apple Music, etc.
Having already established a firm fan base at home Tide Lines have been attracting the eye of music fans in Europe and 2017 will close out with the band having played to audiences in Germany, France and Switzerland.
