Indie Spotlight Review: Tidewater – The Seas We Sail

We all need a creative outlet, don’t we.  Some people draw pretty pictures, while others may make sculptures that make for great photo ops, and others write until their fingers go numb.  For Brett Allen, out of St. Louis, Missouri, it had to be creating Tidewater as his solo music project.  What you’ll hear in his debut album, The Seas We Sail, is an eclectic acoustic sound, mixing in elements of folk rock, indie pop and maybe even a little bluegrass if you listen for it.  If you’re looking for something between Josh White and Lakes, here you go.

    “The Seas We Sail”? I wonder where I’ve heard that before…

    Oh, I’ve got. From Emery’s album “…In Shallow Seas We Sail”. I hate it when people ripp off bands I love.

    its similar and i thought of it too, but using a similar phrase is not the same as ripping someone off

    Pretty sure the title is from the line “…the seas we’re still gonna sail…”, from the 10th song Times We Never Had. Thanks for giving Tidewater some love, Tyler.
