Welcome to our site!

Glad you could drop by.

Who are we? Well, 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, creating 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. There is a strong Australian influence in the song themes and imagery.

We have a CD out. It is being distributed with a novel new method of try-before-you-buy. You can actually listen to and download our tracks, unmastered, right now! For free! No catches!

Just go visit our Soundcloud page here: www.soundcloud.com/tigersandemperors

Or have a listen right now!

If you like what you hear, you can purchase our CD, which has the same tracks, but in cleaned-up, professionally mastered form (in other words, they sound better!). And the artwork is very pretty.

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.

You can also find us (and vote for us!) on JJJ’s Unearthed site:
