Reminiscent of early Massive Attack, the funkier side of De la Soul and the ambience and vocal punch of Faithless, Tiger Shadow started life in Leeds as the Home Studio project of Jim Tycho & Komla MC back in early 2008. They entered their first 2 collaborations into a Sandman magazine competition which gave them their first 2 gigs at the Leeds & Reading Festivals on the BBC Introducing stage. Dave Pearson & Karim Nashar were drafted into the band in quick-time, as they are musicians whom Jim & Komla have jammed with on and off over the last 10 years…

“A genre-crossing collective mixing electronica and jazz with hip-hop” {BBC Leeds}, Tiger Shadow have just finished recording their debut album ‘The Rise of The Tiger Shadow’ with the producer & engineer who worked on the early Pigeon Detectives & Kaiser Chiefs songs…

Leeds Music Scene: “Tiger Shadow are bringing together a range of styles and influences to make something new and distinctive. Funk, Reggae, Trip Hop, Indie and World Music float in and out. It’s definitely new sounding, and with Komla’s presence it’s distinctive and recognisable.”
