Wootz..... Congratulations to the top three Tiger Jams finalists! A couple weekends ago, I was at The Hive for Rozella's showcase. Did you know over 100,000 votes were tabulated during the three-week voting period to identify three of Malaysia’s finest emerging artistes that will be moving onto the last leg of Tiger Jams. And we have home grown bands Donamarie, Rozella and Son of a Policemen (SOAP) garnered the most number of votes and overcame seven other hopefuls to be one step closer to collaborating with a mystery international act.
The bands will each be paired with one acclaimed Asian act (either Singaporean pop band The Sam Willows, Hong Kong’s punk pop band ToNick or Malaysia’s very own Darren Ashley) and an established visual artist (Donald Abraham, Kenji Chai or Flex) to produce an original Tiger Jams track and music video. This track with be the deciding factor for the mystery international act to handpick one of the three for a collaboration. The three finalists will also receive a cash prize of RM15,000 each, and all three bands have plans to upgrade their equipment and produce an album with the money.
Tiger Jams sets out to be an epic jam session to celebrate the sights and sounds from Asia to bring the freshest talents together in celebration of music and art. For more information, please visit www.tigerjams.com
