Lighthouse Family

The Lighthouse Family is a British musical duo that rose to prominence in the mid-1990s and remained active until the early 2000s. Vocalist Tunde Baiyewu and keyboard player Paul Tucker formed the act in 1993 in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK after meeting while studying at university. Their 1995 debut album Ocean Drive sold more than 1.6 million copies in the UK alone and established them as a popular easy listening duo throughout Europe.

They are well known for their songs: “Lifted”, “Ocean Drive”, “Raincloud” and “High”, which also reached number one on the Australian Singles Chart.

Lighthouse Family scaled down their appearances in early 2003 because of what they called a “heavy promotional schedule” following the release of Whatever Gets You Through the Day in 2002. This led to both men pursuing individual projects. Baiyewu is now a solo artist, while Tucker joined a rock band, The Orange Lights. The anticipated Christmas single with clarinet player Adam Grilli was cancelled due to logistical difficulties caused by recent snowfall in the UK.
