Singer-Songwriter Tunde, the iconic voice of the multi-platinum selling Lighthouse Family, has announced a UK tour through May & June.
The singer will be performing Lighthouse Family favourites such as Lifted, High and Ocean Drive, as well as previewing Tunde’s new collection of 1970’s songwriter era inspired recordings. Expect to hear songs from singer-songwriters such as Bill Withers, Elton John, Van Morrison and others.
The Lighthouse Family released their debut album ‘Ocean Drive’, with the lead single Lifted reaching the top five on the UK Singles Chart. ‘Ocean Drive’ was certified six-times platinum by the end of 1997, selling more than 1.8 million copies in the UK alone and spending 154 weeks on the UK Album Chart. Lighthouse Family’s follow-up albums, ‘Postcards from Heaven’ achieved similar status in 1997, reaching 6 times Platinum status, and ‘Whatever Gets You Through the Day’ also receiving Platinum status.
They subsequently sold over 15 million albums throughout their career. Tunde’s first self-titled solo album was released in 2004, with his second solo album, ‘Diamond In A Rock’, released in 2013. In 2019, Lighthouse Family released a new album ‘Blue Sky in Your Head’. It was the group’s first album in 18 years and was supported with two sell-out UK tours.
Over the past few years, Tunde has been working on a new collection of recordings, inspired by the artists and the singer-songwriter era of the 1970’s. Reunited with Lighthouse Family producer Mike Peden, they have recorded a selection of troubadour influenced songs.
