Andrew James & The Steady Tiger announce 2012 East Coast Tour

 

Andrew James & The Steady Tiger, the word class folk-rock duo from Cape Town will embark on a 2 week tour up the East Coast over the Easter holiday. 

 

The duo started attracting attention after they posted a video of a live performance on YouTube in 2011. They went on to record with producer Aron Turest-Swartz (Of Freshly Ground Fame) and featured alongside heavy weights such as Ard Matthews, Steve Newman and Farryl Purkiss at festivals such as they Cape Town Folk Festival.

 

It is a band of just two men. One playing drums & percussion and the other on guitar, lap slide guitar (guitar played flat on the lap), banjo and vocals. They create a full layered sound using effects, amps, and loops but retains a raw, organic and acoustic sound. 

 

“Andrew James folky debut is filled with guitar sounds reminiscent of early Ry Cooder...”

- Rolling Stone

 

“Sliding country-blues grooves and world-aware rhythms are delivered with deceptive simplicity, leaving it sounding raw, yet soulful and subtle.”

- Mahala
