Jonathan Young stated about the song:

Fight the Tide is a heroic folk rock anthem about resisting the pressure of the world around you to do what's right, and become stronger - I recruited my dear friend Colm McGuinness straight out of Ireland to lend all of his fantasy folk music expertise to give this song an edge that makes you feel like an epic hero! I’m really excited for people to hear this one.

Jonathan Young is a new breed of musician. Taking the internet by storm since 2014 with his dark & deep ‘villain’ voice - writing, producing & playing every instrument himself, and leading a new generation into a fantasy world of epic & cinematic heavy metal - one viral video at a time. While rising to self-made success online, Jonathan flexed his writing & production muscles with the release of Starship Velociraptor in 2021 - an 11-song heavy metal fantasy space opera that fans embraced as a tour-de-force of his creativity. Attracting the attention of Grammy winning producer Howard Benson & record breaking songwriter & drummer Neil Sanderson of Three Days Grace, Jonathan Young now co-produces music alongside them as a member of their world-renowned production team at Judge & Jury Records - including his upcoming original album, Children of Night - with the singles currently being released.

Acting as a one-man band, Colm McGuinness is a multi-talented musician with the vocal range of a master. He is a violinist, cello player, singer and YouTuber. Colm’s work prior to shanties were orchestral remixes of famous songs, lending credence to his knowledge of instruments and powerful voice. He also produced Lo-Fi tracks and has composed music for film, tv, and video games.

Judge and Jury Records is an independent record label based in Los Angeles, CA that was founded in 2019 by Multi-Platinum Record Producer Howard Benson and Neil Sanderson of Three Days Grace. Throughout his career, co-founder Howard Benson has sold over 60 million albums, accruing 25 billion+ streams producing for artists such as My Chemical Romance, P.O.D., Skillet, Three Days Grace, Seether, Daughtry, Kelly Clarkson, and many more. Fellow Judge and Jury Records co-founder Neil Sanderson has seen similar success himself from being songwriter and co-founder of Three Days Grace. With over 10 million albums sold and 22 #1 songs at rock radio, he has most recently cemented himself as the #1 Loudwire artist of 2022. Howard and Neil started working together creatively when Howard produced “One-X” with Three Days Grace - his first of several albums with the band. With the combination of Howard's production and Neil's songwriting, they now have the most #1 songs at mainstream rock radio in history.
