James Abberley – Children of the Tide
Children Of The Tide, forged amidst the creative turbulence of Gascoyne In May, Western Australia, exemplify progression and synergy that ebbs and flows from the wide musical backgrounds of the 3 members: Daz, of hip-hop Aussie royalty act Downsyde, Dave Mann, W.A’s celebrated wizard of rootsy/folk/country and the prodigious talent of South Australian James Abberley’s captivating weaving of blues n’ roots and alternative sounds. The various backgrounds are merged seamlessly in this talented collective. Crafted songwriting and evocative musical storytelling is contributed from all members and tangible to audiences.
The lads are all ocean lovers, hence the name. They’re fond of thinking their powerful musical sound has a voluminous saturation about it… like being swept under waves and tuning in to natural forces beyond your control.
They will be touring Western Australia over the next 6 months and performing far and wide. In between gigs they will be recording in Dave’s studio in Margaret River and plan to release a new single in early 2019. Nannup Festival will be a great place to catch Children Of The Tide as they create a name for themselves on the touring circuit and Australian music.
