Biography

The beginnings of Breaking Tides is not much different from that of the many local bands of South Florida. However, while history does not set this band apart, their musical precision, dedication, and raw energy does. Starting out as a side project of a former band, guitarist Luis Cordova, bassist James Rios, and drummer Robert McMickle decided to form Breaking Tides in hopes of unleashing their true potential. Hoping to create a refreshing musical style of their own, they began to form Breaking Tides in late August of 2004, drafting singer Petie Pizarro and guitarist Jeff Kepler into the band.

The success of their aspiration came immediately, as, after playing covers for several shows, the band's original songs made its way into the limelight. Breath-taken after just an earshot, audiences of Breaking Tides were left wanting more. Breaking Tides answered their call with song after song, each reeking with originality, skill, and emotion. Their musical limits were extended further still when, in February of 2005, keyboard player Arthur Ke, Jr joined ranks as the sixth and final member of Breaking Tides. Since then, they have been the talk of the local scene, molding audiences into amazing and loyal fans, and mesmerizing every venue where they've taken stage.

Playing in, and packing such venues as the Bank Atlantic Center (Home of the Florida Panthers), Club Scene, Club Ovation, Pompano Indoor Skate, Solid Sound & Stage, and the Talent Farm, Breaking Tides never fails to turn first-time listeners into hardcore fans. The release of their self-produced album, "Between Truth and Fiction" was an instant hit, as CD's were completely sold out at the release party. Eyeing this local talent, Sam Ash Music Stores quickly decided to sponsor Breaking Tides. Also, Breaking Tides has also won the first round of the Emergenza Festival, a worldwide battle of the bands. However overwhelming it may be that all this has been accomplished in only a year's time, Breaking Tides still wishes to push further and venture onward. After all, it is all that they have evolved into. They breathe in life, and exhale music.

Lyrics

Lost

Written By: Breaking Tides

Your discontent, led you to the fall
I held you in my arms, but you let it all
Slip away, with your last breath
The day I came, is the day that you left

And way back then, you couldn't ask for more
But now I'm spent, you got used to the chores
That I would go through, just so you'd believe
But now you're taken, taken away from me

Don't think, this feels the same
You think it's me, but you're the one to blame

CHORUS:
Dont make yourself so different
Based on words they say
Your change is quick and it accents
Your inability to love

The Rain

Written By: Breaking Tides

So lets throw out the specifics
You generally tend to transfix
Me, and the mess that I?ve become
Reciprocated Desire
Turning the rain into fire
Pouring down, look at what we?ve done

My heart is wax for you to mold
Be careful that of which you hold
Is effected by your every word
I tried to get this through to you
Year ago, while we were still brand new
Hearts waiting for a change to be spurred

CHORUS:
You carried me up from the boldest storm today
I?d do the same
If I could be there for you
The rain will fall wet but it will retain
And give the shape
To my life, tried and true

Surrounded by fire
Take a minute to
Wonder how you
Can take me higher
Than I?ve ever been before

By this time I?m inspired
Guided by the hand
And shown the way
No longer tired
Of the feelings that were stored

Take it all apart
Piece it back together
You?re the one who
Completed the heart
That had fallen all these years

Have the chance to start
A light emerged
From within darkness
Found in you a part
Which is curing all the tears

CHORUS:
Light up my candle
Embrace this fully tonight
This could last forever
It all just feels so right
