“(Tiger Kid) counts heavy riffs and soaring vocals as two of its main features. The track tackles some fairly big concepts, with the main lyrical theme here being that the universe is constantly changing and human beings should never stop searching for something more – an interesting and unique theme.” - Jane Howkins
“Tiger Kid gave me a thrill that I don’t often get when listening to many modern rock acts. “Ever On” is solid on its own merits, but it also has a character to it that is almost from a different era of the genre. With heavy flavors of the alt/emo/hard rock hybrids of the mid-00's, the weight of the song’s sound is carried by this music attitude. ” - Eric Reyes
“The juicy choruses, the uplifting lyricism and the sheer amount of momentum made Spring Trap mosh pit frenzy fuel. If you don’t miss live music before you hit play, you definitely will after the galvanizing track has faded to a close.” - Amelia Vandergast
Tiger Kid is an Los Angeles-based solo project and the brainchild of Vocalist/Instrumentalist Michael Canton. Tiger Kid combines the music of throwback Melodic Hard Rock with lyrics that focus on aggressive self-affirmations, dealing with everything from anxiety, to unrealized potential, to our place in the universe and our right to be here.
Inspired by bands such as Foo Fighter, Queens of the Stone Age, Coheed and Cambria, and many others, Tiger Kid brings back the anthemic Rock that we all grew up listening to on our favorite radio stations in the late 90s/early 2000s. Heavy, but not over the top, hooks that get stuck in your brain, and lyrics that help you attack each day, secure in the knowledge that you can take on anything.
We're bigger than the situations we find ourselves in, and stronger than we give ourselves credit for. Sometimes, we just need a little reminder of our own power.
