Hip-hop and jazz share a similar trajectory in the social consciousness and both have served to help (and at times hinder) one another. Those two genres of music affect everyone in this group, some are more straight-ahead fans and others prefer neck-breaking dilla beats, “Tiger Speak” exists solely to explore both those worlds. On behalf of the group thank you for listening, if you like what you hear please share the music with others. We’ll see you out there. Much Love, Carter
All of these amazing people helped the group in one way or another, thank you:
Adam Shumate and Harrison Alleyne, you guys will always have a place in this group.
Anjel for stepping up on R.D.C.
Lomar Brown, Evan Veenstra, Noah Frank, Patrick Simard, Kirsjin, Akhil Gopal. Thanks so much for helping out when the group just needed some heavy players!
The Record Co for providing an incredible place for artists in Boston
Jeremy Blas for absolutely killing the engineering and mixing duties, this guy went truly above and beyond and we are forever indebted to him.
Ekin Cengizkan for chopping, digitizing and pulverizing!
Erik Berg for the art!
All of our families by blood or otherwise.
Finally, everyone that has listened to this record, sincerely, THANK YOU!
Sincerly, TIGER SPEAK
