Widetrack is the musical partnership of Ron Tippin and his 16 year-old son, Zach.
The duo's "Alterna-Prog" sound strikes a balance between the moody-deep undertones of such progressive groups as Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Porcupine Tree, The Mars Volta, etc., with the heaviness of alternative and hard rock bands like Soundgarden, Queens Of The Stone Age, Tool, STP, etc.
Between 2007 and 2016, Ron self-released the band's first three albums, 'Widetrack', 'Widetrack II', and 'Widetrack III', Zach's recording debut, as bassist.
Beginning in January 2019, the father-son team wrote, recorded and released one new song each month, marking Zach's debut as a songwriter and recording engineer, as well as the first time Ron had written Widetrack music with another person.
The twelve songs comprise Widetrack's fourth album, The Unwakening, released on April 23rd, 2020 (Zach's 16th birthday).
The band was in the process of booking live dates throughout 2020-2021, but those plans have been put on hold, due to the pandemic crisis. In the meantime, they are writing and recording new music, playing live streaming performances, and mixing two previously unreleased E.P.s from 2012 and 2015.
