Glasgow-based 4 piece, Tide Lines, have grown their large & passionate fanbase through blistering live shows and their trademark anthemic songs.


Their unique appeal stems from escapist lyrics mixed with driving undercurrents of drums, guitars and keyboards.

Their second album, the self produced and self released ‘Eye of the Storm’, arrived in the depths of lockdown in May 2020 yet still debuted at #12 in the Official UK Album Charts - narrowly missing the top 10.

‘Eye of the Storm’ also topped both the Scottish and Independent album charts on the week of release.


Tide Lines consists of Robert Robertson from Lochaber, Ross Wilson from the Isle of Mull, Alasdair Turner from Easter Ross, and Fergus Munro from Glasgow.
