hitide.lotide is the brain child of Milwaukee native Nate Gruber. Their debut release; "The Forest", contains 16 tracks sung from the perspective of different forest creatures, and is the culmination of over 2 and a half years of writing, recording, listening, and recording again. 15+ join on any given day to bring the forest to life through the groups many talented members creating music, costumes, visual artwork, web-work, as well as written and spoken pieces.
Gruber's latest work is a four song EP released December 24 of 2009 as a gift for family and friends. The songs were recorded over two days, mixed the same night and given as a gift the next day. The songs are free for download.
There is another six song collection, already close to completion, which will be released in the coming months.
