Since 1987 founding Tidal Embrace member Craig McNeil has been writing music. At the young age of 12 he was in and out of recording studio's playing clarinet, singing and rapping. In 1992 Craig bought a Commodore Amiga computer and began writing and composing on his own, eventually joining the electronic band Added Height. Added Height folded in 1995, but not before putting on many shows and recording some very memorable music.

In 1995 Craig went out on his own and continued his musical path, it was in 1996 that he met electronic group Red Sector 1 and became friends. Mike from Red Sector 1 taught Craig a lot about electronic music; one of the more important connections an introduction to Vancouver electro band, Front and Center. Matt from Front and Centre encouraged Craig to contact Keith Gillard from the group Tin Men.

Keith, an electronic wizard in his won right, worked with Craig on a CD sized package of originals, and they worked together for an extended period of time.

In 1998, Craig teamed up with the rock outfit Drosophilia, and produced their first CD, Electric Biosphere. Working in the recording studio was great learning experience for Craig, and a reminder of how things worked in the recording environment.

As the new millennium dawned, Craig continued writing new music and songs amassing a lot of material. Throughout the next few years he worked with bands such as Standing and joined a band called Invincible and Untouchable.

By 2009 Craig itched to create his own body of work, so he released his first CD entitled Misery Loves Company under the name Tidal Embrace. Within a year Craig joined up with fellow musician and good friend Hazen Sage, and started playing live shows again. Hazen dubbed Craig, "Vilo," meaning, "light as air," and they continue to gig together around the lower mainland and Vancouver Island.

Tidal Embrace's second CD, a bit darker and deeper than the first, debuted at the end of 2010, called Standing at the Edge of the World
