Tell us your opinion on creativity and originality.

Creativity is a positive feeling of productivity combined with self-expression. I believe creativity comes naturally inside everybody. Whether it is a refusal to sit in boredom or a desire to show the world how you feel instead of telling them blandly.

 

 

 

Originality is hard to define. First, in order to write good songs, you must learn from artists that inspire you to do so. This can be a fine line between imitation and emulation but I believe once you listen and learn about all types of music, your sponge-like brain slowly absorbs it, holds it and forms it into something new, which isn’t the same but is almost like another step onwards from the genre it came from, and that to me is where originality truly starts to flourish.

Tell us the beginning of your passion for music.

I was a bedroom guitarist like so many other kids. I didn’t know anyone else that played guitar and I didn’t even listen to the same music as everyone else at school. I was into my own thing, mainly rock and metal at the time. It was when I met my best friend AJ that my mind was opened to this bigger universe of groove and energy.

 

We listened to John Mayer, James Taylor, and even Wu-tang in his room on Vinyl. That was a big-time of passionate music growth and admiration for what can be done with a guitar.

Elaborate on how you make sure the quality of your sound is high.

Well to start; the song has to be solid… Structure, meaning, and lyrics. All that stuff before it goes to the whole band.

 

It’s easier to build upon something with solid foundations. Everything seems to fit more naturally when you have the vision laid out from the start.

 

We record all our stuff at a professional studio in the South of England called PMC (Plymouth Music Collective) and have a great producer called Doc who has years of experience.

 

We do as many takes as we need to get it right but there’s never stress or rush to get it done. We let it grow and form as naturally as we can. Always seems to work best.

Tell us how you get ideas to develop your songs.

Well, the initial concept is normally from something I’ve got going on in my life. I’ll sit down with the guitar and work it out. It can take a day, a week, or even months till the skeleton of the song is ready. Then I take it to the band, and we will jam it, either at my house or busking or at a gig.

 

Live settings are great to test ideas and try things out. You tend to know instantly if it sucks or not by the crowd.

 

Once all the parts are sorted, we will focus on harmonies…

Discuss your music background.

I’ve been a singer-songwriter for the past 10 years, It was during the making of our first EP that the band came together.

 

I realized that the songs were so much bigger than my own name so we became something bigger and formed Pint Sized Tiger to match the energy of the tracks. We get a lot of funky grooves from listening to great bands like RHCP and Incubus.

Discuss how you think your music is impacting your fans.

We like to push positivity! We give our fans love and appreciation all the time by being honest in our songs.

 

Tracks like ‘Thank You’… The song came from a real place so we hope fans can find a real place for them in their hearts.

Tell us what inspires you to sing.

I really don’t know. It just happens every day, and I can’t stop it. My mum sings a lot… I do love being moved by great singers like Matt Corby or Noah Gunderson. Having the power to make someone feel how you feel. Be it happy, sad, or somewhere in between is like a superpower.

Discuss this song.

‘Thank You’ is a song about the bittersweet silver lining in heartbreak. It the realization that getting dumped is the first thing you might have to learn to let things go. This ultimately gives you the power to let go of pain when you finally realize you are strong enough to do so.

Discuss how you develop your melody.

The melody came after the chord’s structure and groove. Once they were set the melody almost presents itself to you. It runs along with the chords changes and lands on the 1 of the beat of the drums of each chord. The chorus melody was a lot more fun. It has a jazz stab rundown with 3 staccato harmony lines; all moving in different changes through the chorus. This gives a somewhat hypnotic feel that hooks you even more into the song.

Pint Sized Tiger are a five-headed funktastic beast from the heart of South Devon. Their style tastefully incorporates various elements of pop, soul, and funk to produce a groovy soulful sound that’s been compared to the likes of artists such as Tom Misch, Allen Stone, and John Mayer.

Tell us how you master your songs after production.

We sent this song to the guys at Audio Unity Group. They were offering free mastering at the time to help artists during the Corona outbreak. We love their work and will use them again.

Discuss how you get your songs to digital stores.

We use EmuBands as a distributor. They offer a great range of services for signing up… Multiple platform distribution and quick access to Spotify artists.

Discuss how to generate income through music.

Through my experience, it’s hard to make money through original music. Pushing online works if you get buzz, playlisting, and release regular music. Even if you have over a thousand monthly listeners it not enough to live off. I make most of my money from gigs, merch, or busking. It’s old school but does the job for me.

Tell us your piece of advice to a new artist.

Write music every single day. Don’t even attempt to make a masterpiece. Write whatever you think about during that time. You are sharpening your sword so that when that day comes when you feel something so strongly that you need to express you will have taught yourself the power of songwriting and it will flow out of you. Some of the best songs were written in minutes.
