Ok brace yourselves, this could be a long one.
You may have noticed that there have been a few changes around the site and on various social media channels. That’s to go with the changes that there have been behind the scenes which I’ll try to explain here.
Without going in to any ridiculous details, the “band”, if you could ever really call it that, that we once were, is no more. The reason being that for a band to be a band, there really needs to be more than 1 person involved and that’s just not the case any more. Just so we are all absolutely 100% clear, there was no big fight or anything ridiculous like that but Dan and Helena have decided to do some other things with their lives which means that they can’t do TM stuff so much any more and I genuinely couldn’t be happier for them. Seriously. It kind of goes without saying though that if the opportunity ever came up do play with either or both of them again, either separately or together I would jump on it. TM would NOT be what it is today, whatever that is, without them and they remain really, really, really good friends. They’ll be back, I’m sure. I’m just not sure when.
So where does that leave me? Well I did consider stopping this whole silly Tiger Mendoza thing altogether but thinking about it a bit more, I just don’t want to. Why would I? I still love making music and doing gigs and it’s not like I haven’t done solo remixes and gigs in the past. So Tiger Mendoza stays, but it just needs to change shape a bit. Which I think is healthy in the long run.
So what’s next? Well I currently have 1.5 / 2 projects that I would LOVE you to hear by the end of 2015. One is a second collection of tunes with the legendary Dave Griffiths and one is something I’ve wanted to do for a while but haven’t been able to until now. But trust me you’ll like it. Honest.
I’m not going to pretend that we have any kind of mega huge fan base but I do appreciate all of the support that we’ve received so far. Thank You! Feel free to get in touch via Twitter, the contact page or even Instagram (Please not Facebook though, the fan page messaging is rubbish).
There WILL be new stuff for you to listen to soon, trust me. Stay tuned.
