Influenced by Drake, Bob Dylan, Roxette, Mike Posner and the New York underground hip hop scene, The Tide's concept is inspired by Mike Schlosser's personal journey from one Canadian city to another, a move that took him from Vancouver's scenic beauty to Toronto's urban milieu.

Biography

Born in the Yukon. Raised in Alberta. Lived in Vancouver and now Toronto. All of these places are in Canada.

Mostly Mike Schlosser writes music and plays music and listens to music and loves music. He also sometimes listens to people and occasionally loves them. He also sometimes listens to or loves other things like animals and poetry and trees and oceans.

He has a degree in Sociology but doesn’t usually apply that to his music. Mostly his music is inspired by other music that he has liked. Examples of this are Bob Dylan, Faith No More, Iggy and the Stooges, Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metric, Bloc Party, and many many many other things.

Mike finds the most interesting aspects of music are change, growth, and experimentation. Mike strives to combine electronic and acoustic elements into a vast array of musical textures and pallets. He often says that this is his favorite thing to do although he usually says it so quietly that most people mistake it for simple breathing.

Lyrics

Gunshot

Written By: Mike Schlosser

hey baby ur lookin like a soldier tonight
all laced up tied in and looking to fight
its a hard rain soft-shoe
baby whatchu gonna do
cuz ur looking at me
like u wanna leave
u need that
hard fought
full stop
gun shot
love

ur actin tough like u used to b a full time martyr
but ur breakin like a wave as we walk in the water
ur a pond sized tidal wave
at my feet everyday
but tidal wont do
for a martyr like u
cuz u need that
hard fought
full stop
gun shot
love

and its the other side of the morning
and in the distance the sirens are sounding those heavy warnings
just when I think ur gonna leave
u turn to me
cuz u need that
hard fought
full stop
gun shot
love
