‘Audibly a force to be reckoned with…’ RaveChild 2017
Since they began in January 2017, Tiderays have established themselves on both a local level, selling out their debut EP launch, and on the Scottish music scene as a whole. Taking influence from bands such as Frightened Rabbit, Fatherson and Bon Iver, the band have amalgamated these influences with their own personal musical backgrounds, ultimately creating a truly original Scottish indie rock sound.
Their ever growing track record of gigs is one to be respected. After continuous live shows in their hometown of Dumfries, the four piece have began to merge with the scenes in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Carlisle supporting bands such as The Estrons. They also excelled at putting on their own headline show in Scotland’s music capital with support from some of the best up and coming acts Glasgow has to offer.
As well as performing at reputable venues around the country, Tiderays have also been involved in larger-scale events. They took to the stage during the Big Burns Supper Arts Festival in Dumfries at the start of the year alongside Scottish legend Eddi Reader and a host of other acts to toast the bard. The band have since went on to make their debut music festival appearance at Electric Fields Festival, sharing the stage with A-list acts such as Glass Animals and Dizzee Rascal while maintaining a modest approach to their music.
Andy Allinson has been writing, recording, and performing music since the
seventies. His main instruments are piano, guitar, harmonica, and drums. He is currently working on his second album. When playing live he tailors his music to the audience; playing well known and loved covers as well as his own songs, and the odd obscure number!
