Mark Lettieri Releases Music Video for "Tidal Tail"

The music video for Mark Lettieri's song, “Tidal Tail” is live on our YouTube channel! 

Mark Lettieri
- “I started writing this in a hotel in Sherman Oaks, CA during the tracking sessions for the Fearless Flyer’s Tailwinds album. Thus, the working title was “Swingin’ in Sherman Oaks.” I’d say this song is a good example of what I’d call the “baritone funk sound” - a funk/R&B-meets-rock vibe where the melody and hooks come from rhythm guitar figures, rather than traditional single notes lines. Of course Bobby and JT’s groove and feel just take it over the top.”
