Tiger and Bloom:
YIN & YANG. Opposite forces. Complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world that give rise to each other as they connect. Canadian pop duo Tiger & Bloom is a fusion of two opposing energies that have come together in their relentless love, passion and obsession for creating music. The stars aligned in 2015 when Tiger Rose (vocals, guitar, drums) and Rikki Bloom (vocals, piano, synth) met while pursuing musical careers in their own right, looking to be revived and rejuvenated in their songwriting. They began their new journey, hungry to create something beyond this universe, expressing themselves musically without limitations.
The chemistry of Tiger & Bloom was undeniable from the moment they began writing. Tiger, an eccentric Rock musician, formerly the vocalist for the band ‘Broken Sons,’ brings energy beyond the sun. Bloom, kind and soft spoken with tremendous success as a YouTube solo artist delivers complexity and grace. The fusion of their spirits combined in perfect balance to create a sound that expresses their individuality with the purpose of rejuvenating, energizing and inspiring all those that hear it.
Mermaids Exist is a five-piece ensemble that has performed at notable venues such as The Horseshoe Tavern and The Home County Music Festival. Influenced by artists such as John Mayer and Canadian classic rock group The Band, the Merms have created a melting pot of their individual influences to develop a genre rooted in the deep lyrical strengths of a singer-songwriter with the big bang that a band brings. Their live performances are filled with energy and beautiful vocal harmonies, which will be captured in their first full length album, set for release in the summer of 2016. The Mermaids are no longer mythical. They will reel you in with their charm, their moves, and their grooves and have you begging for more. Once you’ve heard them, the only answer to the question “Do Mermaids Exist?” will be: Yes. And they rock.
