West Canadian Folk Band
Tiger Moon is a West Canadian Folk band - a healthy blend of Bluegrass and Country, with feet still planted deep in the mud of the Folk world. Led by the couple Dan Tait and Kasey Graff, their sound is unique and instantly timeless as they weave stories of love, life, travel and heartbreak through song. Syrupy-sweet 4-part harmonies fortify the pair as well as a full rhythm and bass backline, providing a full-bodied sound for their at-once intimate and exciting performances.
The band features Joshua Smith on bass & vocal harmonies, Dylan Ranney on percussion & vocal harmonies, as well as a rotating myriad of special guests on lead instruments.
Tiger Moon has been performing as a duo and as a four-piece lineup since 2012, building a palpable bond between their members and their listeners. With their full-length record 'Cariboo & Whiskey' released in June 2017, the band is poised to weave themselves deep into Canada's music scene the old-fashioned way... Through performance.
Tiger Moon Thus Far...
Tiger Moon is coming off a career year in 2017. Together the band recorded and released their debut full-length album Cariboo & Whiskey, completed another massive summer of touring through BC & Alberta, and garnered performance slots at a few major BC festivals, including Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival, Arts Wells Festival, and Ponderosa Festival. The band has set their sights high for 2018, aiming to record a live album and increase their touring circuit even further - including all of the prairie provinces as well as Canada's northern territories in 2018. After a short German tour in May 2018, the band will be returning to Canada to soak up the rich festival season, and to hand-deliver as many vinyls & CDs as possible across the country.
Salmon Arm Roots and Blues had the pleasure of presenting the talents of Tiger Moon at the 2017 Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival on the weekend of August 17 - 20, 2017.
Although often considered an emerging or up and coming act, Tiger Moon is a fully formed musical entity that draws on a combination of superior talents.
Dan Tait and Kasey Graff share the same vision that is built on carefully crafted melodies and lyrics, strong vocals with a purposeful dynamic thrust, and a firm instrumental foundation. That the two are also incredibly engaging and sincere makes for performances that leave audiences coming back for more, even when placed among a heavyweight line-up.
Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival
"Dan and Kasey as Tiger Moon are a dynamic duo, making old songs new and their own songs instantly familiar. With excellent musicianship and talent, paired with being fabulous people to work with, I will consider them for future concert series and festivals I buy talent for! These two are so fabulous, I'm grateful to have been able to help with their career development through our Inside the Festival Program with Salmon Arm Roots and Blues. "

"I love these guys, then again what’s not to love. T-Moon will turn any cold dark arena into a good ole barn dance in minutes, I’ve witnessed it!
The first time I saw them I felt like I’d known these sweet souls all my life; they just get under your skin and into your heart… It becomes a musical love affair!
I hope the rest of the world takes a minute to tune into Tiger Moon, one of the nicest discoveries of my musical life."
