As reviewed in Vintage Rock magazine, and featured on Mike Davies BBC Radio One Show it's the Easy Tigerz!
Easy Tigerz is a guitar and double bass songwriting duo, signed to Western Star the world's coolest rockabilly label! The band is gaining a growing reputation for its live shows as a trio performing original songs and classic fifties and sixties covers, with harmony vocals, an authentic vintage sound and electrifying guitar riffs mixing up swing, rockabilly, blues and sixties rock 'n' roll.
The Easy Tigerz debut album was released in August 2012 by Western Star. Recorded over three sessions with the legendry Alan Wilson at Western Star Studios near Bath, the album features 15 original tracks ranging from Rockabilly, through 60's Nashville, to US West Coast Surf & Garage - or as Western Star put it "This is a cool album and has more than a touch of that 60's B-movie feel about it. "
