How would you describe 2013 for King Tide?

2013 for King Tide was great year: lots of of gigs; working on a new album. Our fourth has been demanding – a bit like pulling teeth. We are being tough on ourselves for this one. Quality control is high. So yeah, 2013: frustrating yet sunny!

You have had a huge presence on the festival circuit. Why do you think King Tide does so well and is in such continuous demand?

Because we dress with a dandy air and our stage patter is second to none!

KINGTIDE-MULLUM-FEST-BACK-STAGE-TWO-150dpiWhat is it about reggae, do you think, that connects as a genre with people?

When you say reggae – it’s a broad church. We land more in your rock-steady-reggae-got-soul variety. We have fun. It’s a very physical show.

It’s going to be really, really good!

What is the essence of a King Tide show?

Lots of good songs and jumping around!

What should we expect for your Mullumbimby show?

The best night out you could ever possibly have anywhere. Ever!

King Tide appear with Tora at the Court House Hotel in Mullumbimby on Friday from 8pm.
