Welcome to
Tiger Shadow



Tiger Shadow are alternative hip-hop pioneers from Leeds, blending intelligent and socially conscious rhymes with multi-layered compositions and urban grooves to create something you've never quite heard before. Beautiful string arrangements play alongside swirling synths and bone crunching riffs, underpinned by heavy-duty drum programming to quench a musical thirst you never knew you had.

Tiger Shadow was created after Jim & Komla entered their first collaborations into a Sandman magazine competition, which resulted in the band's first ever gigs being played at the Leeds & Reading Festivals on the BBC Introducing stage in 2008. They have also played the Big Chill Festival, Leeds Unity Day, a live set for BBC Raw Talent, and were in the final 12 out of 1600 acts for the Emerging Talent Competition to play Glastonbury in 2010.
