DARREN MIDDLETON: THE ‘TIDES’ INTERVIEW

It’s been eight years since the official break up of iconic Australian group Powderfinger in 2010 and twenty years since the release of their multi-award winning recording Internationalist. A 20th anniversary edition of the album is due to be released on October 12th. Prior to that release however, with a lesser degree of fanfare but equal amounts of pride, former Powderfinger guitarist Darren Middleton will be delivering ’Tides’, his 3rd solo album. Tides will be released on September 21 and is Middleton’s most accomplished work to date.

For Tides, Middleton teamed up with with Davey Lane (You Am I) as co-production buddy and brought in Steve Schram to mix. The album also includes some quality Australian performers such as Vika and Linda Bull and Kelly Lane on backing vocals, with Graeme Pogson (The Bamboos), Luke Hodgson (Meg Mac), Xani Kolac and Louis Macklin (JET) handling the rhythm of the album.

Prior to the album’s release, Australian Musician’s Greg Phillips sat down with Darren Middleton last month at the Melbourne Guitar Show for a chat about the creation of Tides.
