Milton Hide


Milton Hide are husband and wife, Jim and Josie Tipler, from Wilmington in East Sussex, UK. They perform their own songs and compositions on guitar, cajon, clarinet and the very occasional banjo and xylophone thrown in for good measure. Subjects include polite, political rants, egg banjos, murder, whale riding, weddings, death and mid life crisis.   

Encompassing contemporary folk, a touch of blues and cajun, some pop and a smattering of klezmer, their unique music is influenced by the local landscape, landmarks, characters and family.

Coming soon ...

Temperature's Rising, our debut FULL ALBUM will launch on Friday 5th March 2021.

We are really excited to be able to finally bring you this album, delayed in 2020, which was largely funded by our wonderful Crowdfunder supporters.

We loved making this video with shadow puppets and other props! Available to download from miltonhide.bandcamp.com
The first single from Milton Hide's debut album is Littlefield. A song about hope in dark times, it was inspired by a winter afternoon walk when a light was spotted in the window of a house that had been unoccupied for many months.
It's not a Christmas song but it has a christmassy feel along with a message of hope.
Produced by John Fowler and Milton Hide
Mastered by Mark Beazley
Temperature's Rising, Milton Hide's first full album, is due for release early 2021
