Welcome to our site!

We’re glad you could drop by, let us introduce ourselves.

If you didn’t already know, Tigers and Emperors is a Brisbane-based alt-folk-blues-country band. Our music blends beautiful harmonies and layered instrumentation with poignant lyrics. This creates a sound which is quite unique, and ends up full of sunshine and happiness, drama and joy. At least, that’s what we’d like to think!

The band draws its name from the different butterflies found in the Australian landscape such as Blue Tigers and Imperial Lacewings. Most of the songs have been written at different outdoor jamming locations around the Brisbane River. We have a strong Australian influence in our song themes and imagery.

We have just released our CD. We’re are using a variety of distribution methods. The digital distribution options are available to the right. We’re happy for you to try-before-you-buy. You can actually listen to and download our tracks, unmastered, right now from SoundCloud or you can listen to our finished product using the Bandcamp player, also to the right.

If you like what you hear, you can purchase our CD digitally, or write to us to obtain a physical copy.

If you’ve been to one of our gigs, we might have even given the CD away. You see, we’d rather people have a chance to listen before deciding if they want to keep us. If you do, then you pay. If not, the CD gets passed on to someone else who might like it, for free.
