Fast Five: Tiger Tsunami



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

The first experience with music was when I picked up the guitar about 10 years ago. From then I played in bands all the time, nothing too serious.The whole experience of playing with other musicians progressed into a love of composing music. Creating music became a passion. It was pretty much a natural progression from there into the electronic experimentation that culminated into what is now Tiger Tsunami.

I dabbled in music journalism for a while, but ultimately the creation of music is where my passion lies

How would you describe your music?

I’d say it’s electronic music with some hip hop influences thrown in. There’s also a lot of guitar based melodies going on too, so that’s definitely a part of my sound.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

I’m currently working on my debut EP, which will be released in Summer 2013. The first track off of it will drop in a few weeks. I’m also currently working on some collaborations with some amazing artists from the States, Canada and Iceland, so those will emerge as we finish them. I’ll be coming out of the woodwork to play some live sets starting early Summer, so keep an eye out for that.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

It’s not so much a duet, rather a collaboration, but it’d have to be Bonobo. He’s a genius.

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

Bonobo – Black Sands would have to be the disc. There’s such a wide array of genres melded into that album that it’d keep me entertained, for sure.
