The Seas We Sail” is the recently released full-length debut album by Tidewater. In the three weeks since its release, the album has remained on the Top Selling Music Chart of leading online distributor Smart Punk. The album was produced by KG (Means, Blind Witness, Hester Prynne), and features mastering by Troy Glessner (Copeland, Death Cab, Anberlin) and stunning cover artwork by Dave Quiggle (Paramore, New Found Glory). Fitting alongside both grandiose melodic pop and modern emo rock Tidewater is the solo work of seasoned musician Brett Allen. He contributes vocals, guitar, piano and mandolin, all of which are featured prominently on the album.

Locked away in a studio earlier this year with KG, Allen recorded the songs in between his studies at Baylor University in Waco Texas where he majors in film. A seasoned live performer Allen has had his hand in several bands with varying degrees of success but Tidewater has his full focus and input currently. His passion and faith fuel his songwriting as Allen admits “The theme of hope is everywhere in these songs. I know that’s not particularly fashionable but I can’t help it! It’s not my intention to punch people in the face with my values. I’m just a really thankful dude, whose grateful for everything he’s been given.” Tidewater has also been highly promoted over the past month by FUSE TV and Absolute Punk. Look for tour dates to materialize shortly.

Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
