About Us
Ten Mile Tide is a San Francisco-based five-piece that plays a smooth blend of feel-good acoustic rock, foot-stomping folk, and beer-drenched bluegrass. Formed in 1999, the group is composed of Jason (lead electric guitar, vocals) and Justin Munning (rhythm acoustic guitar, vocals), Steve Kessler (fiddle), Jeff Clemetson (bass), and John Morales (drums). The band has always had a heavy folk influence; childhood heroes such as Bob Dylan and Neil Young contribute to the band's strong focus on songwriting. Influences such as the Allman Brothers, the Grateful Dead, and The Band further define Ten Mile Tide's dynamic live sound. Ten Mile Tide has shared the stage with other national touring acts such as The Wailers, Dispatch, moe., MOFRO, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Strangefolk, The Clumsy Lovers, Railroad Earth, and The Slip and has played festivals such as CMJ 2004 in NYC, The High Sierra Music Festival in Northern California, and the Three Rivers Festival in Columbia, SC. In the summer of 2004, Ten Mile Tide was selected as one of 10 finalists in Relix magazine’s Jamoff competition out of a pool of over 200 unsigned bands. The band was featured in the June issue of the magazine and their song "Sweet Life" was included on a promotional Relix compilation CD which was distributed at major summer 2004 festivals. The band has also received national and international media attention including CNN, the Denver Post, the Contra Costa Times, Canadian Broadcasting Channel, San Francisco Magazine, Stanford Magazine, and independent and college newspapers and radio across the country for its successes as an independent band. With Ten Mile Tide’s consent, users of file-sharing programs have downloaded more than 10 million Ten Mile Tide songs worldwide. The band's growing Street Team now consists of more than 350 members in 45 U.S. States and 10 countries. Fueled by the grass-roots support of their fans, the band has been touring nationally full-time since August of 2003. In December of that year, Ten Mile Tide released their second album, "Midnight Is Early". Recorded in August and September 2003 with producer Jack Gauthier (Dispatch, Pete Francis), the album features 11 original songs.
