Place in-between Josh Pyke and Bob Evans
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.
I remember Darren Middleton taking the vocals for a Powderfinger gig after Bernard Fanning lost his voice. It is interesting to see him take this a step further and find his own identity away from Powderfinger. Ironically, with so many guests it almost comes across like a super group.
