Biography

BIO:
Hightide Blues took the stage for the first time in 2006 and has been gracing hundreds of stages for thousands of fans ever since. Now based in Nashville, their sound is a throw back to roots rock with a modern twist and an original delivery that's in a category of its own. With their high-energy performances and huge fan base, it's no surprise that Hightide Blues has shared the stage with artists such as Sara Bareilles, Augustana, Zac Brown Band, Rocco Deluca, Matt Costa, Donavon Frankenreiter, Jason Isbell, The Whigs, JJ Grey & Mofro, Dead Confederate, Pat McGee, and many more.

Their delivery of acoustic and electric guitars with a hard-hitting rhythm section has lead to sold out shows all over the Southeast and won't be stopping there. Hightide Blues played Bonnaroo 2008, SXSW 2009, and are expanding their touring with shows all over the US of A, from Colorado to New York.

In February 2008 Hightide Blues recorded their second EP "Love Come Easy" with producer Richard McLaurin at House of David Studios in Nashville, where music legends Elvis, Neil Young, B.B. King, Joe Cocker, and Roy Orbison recorded some of the most influential albums in music history. The highly anticipated "Love Come Easy" is generating excitement from fans and major music industry people alike, with the lead singles "Dreamin' Alone" and "Let It Roll" getting into full rotation on radio. Being labeled the hottest up and coming band in the Southeast, Hightide Blues is following in the footsteps of the many music legends who graced the very same studio, and anything is possible for this band as they tour the country picking up momentum and fans along the way.
