Blaž Sotošek – Tide


My name is Blaž, I was born in 1987 and I come from Slovenia. My music career started at the age of 7 when my parents enrolled me in a percussion music school. I was soon winning awards at various music competitions, both at the regional and national level. I successfully passed my entrance exams for the secondary music school which, in a turn of events, I decided to quit and continue to educate myself on my own. I soon realised that music was becoming a way of life for me as I found myself spending more and more time playing the drums.

Cooperations with numerous musicians led to several international award winning projects; in 2006 I was proclaimed the best drummer at the Newcomer contest among more than 100 other bands from all around Europe.

Motivation and desire to create good music kept growing inside of me, so I joined the hard-rock, grunge band Tide in 2011. In 2012 we released our fourth album “No. 4” and recorded several special award winning videos. We have shared the stage with many great names, such as Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, Iron Maiden, Uriah Heep and others. We have also performed at Exit, one the largest music festivals in the territory of former Yugoslavia.
