Tigers and Emperors is a Brisbane-based alt-folk-blues-country band formed by a group of like-minded musicians and friends from quite varied backgrounds.

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.

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.

About the musicians: Damien Murtagh and Fflur Collier come from their own folk pop band 'Sans Grenadine' who have played at Woodford and around Brisbane. Richie Coster plays in rock band Harvton. Mark Cocquio plays drums in blues/rock band Fuzzy Polaroid. Shane Dillon plays sweet sweet bass. We also have a water bottle bass drum called Boris.

We have been playing, gigging and recording together for several years.
