The seeds of The TIP were sown when Benny Carl, Dixie Carl and Ricky Dover Jr met bassist Drew Uldrich knocking on the door of their rehearsal space in the spring of 2014. The simple gesture let to a perfect match up between the four musicians, and by June the band was playing their first show at legendary Atlanta strip-club The Claremont Lounge. The independently released four song, "Killin' It Wasted EP" quickly followed, and by November of the same year the band was on tour with Hollywood's Hammered Satin (Burger Records).
After linking up with NashTray Productions in East Nashville, the band recorded their self-titled debut album during January of 2015. With continued success playing regional showcases, The TIP is now set to release their debut album in the summer of 2015. Starting June 18th at Star Bar in Atlanta, The TIP are set out on a 16-date East Coast / Mid West tour with notable shows at Brooklyn's Grand Victory, Minneapolis' First Ave/Seventh St Entry, and Chicago's Reggie's. After the summer tour, the band looks to the West Coast for a string of dates in the latter half of 2015.
Members of The Tip have also played with The Poor Boys, The Booze, Abernathy, and Static Revival.
