The Legendary Tigerman
The Legendary Tigerman
Entry Requirements: All Ages
Back when The Legendary Tigerman started he was a one-man band show following the tradition of the roots and original Blues from the Mississippi's delta, where the blues-men performed playing and singing alone, and improvising rhythms in the dance halls of the deep South.
He is touring the new album MISFIT which was recorded at Rancho de La Luna with Dave Catching (Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death) etal) and co -produced and mixed by Johnny Hostile (Savages, John & Jehn) at Pop Noire Studios.
No more a one-man-band, now touring as an amazingly powerful trio, with drums and Baritone Sax.
The Tigerman is all about roots, the essence of things, always keeping it real, gritty and true. The history, the path has the simplicity of true rock'n'roll stories.
The most awaited 6th full length of The Legendary Tigerman debuted in the beginning of 2018! The story of this album starts as a road movie, HOW TO BECOME NOTHING, a three head project by Paulo Furtado, Rita Lino & Pedro Maia. In May 2016, the trio lands in LAX to film a psychedelic adventure in the form of a road movie, between Los Angeles and Death Valley, about the philosophically disturbed journey of a man searching to become nothing.
During two weeks of travelling, Paulo “Tigerman” Furtado spends his days writing the diaries of this imaginary man, acting, and at night, in motel rooms across the California deserts, armed with a Gibson SG, he starts writing the songs of MISFIT.
"The Legendary Tigerman has crafted an exceptional record that really sees him pushing his own musical boundaries" - Louder than War
The Legendary Tigerman is a one-man blues-rock band featuring Paulo Furtado, a Portuguese vocalist and multi-instrumentalist also affiliated with the bands WrayGunn and Tédio Boys. Born in Coimbra, Portugal, Furtado began his career in the late '80s as the guitarist and songwriter of the psychobilly band Tédio Boys. Prior to his departure at the end of the decade, the band released the albums Porkabilly Psychosis!!! (1994), Outer Space Shit! (1996), and Bad Trip (1998) and toured the United States. Furtado subsequently founded WrayGunn, a blues-rock band in which he played guitar and sang vocals alongside frontwoman Raquel Ralha. In association with the NorteSul label, WrayGunn made their album debut with Amateur (2000), followed by Soul Jam (2001), Ecclesiastes 1.11 (2005), and Shangri-La (2007). Meanwhile, Furtado founded the Legendary Tigerman, a one-man blues-rock band in which he sang and played guitar and drums alone on-stage. In association with the Subotnick Enterprises label, he made his full-length album debut as the Legendary Tigerman with Naked Blues (2001), followed by Fuck Christmas, I Got the Blues (2003) and In Cold Blood (2004), the latter comprised of remixes. He subsequently switched to Rastilho Records and released his third album, the critically acclaimed Masquerade (2006). Following the success of that album and a tour in support of former Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker, the Legendary Tigerman moved to EMI for the release of his next album, Femina (2009). Featuring collaborations with a cast of female vocalists, Femina was a smash hit that reached the Top Five on the Portuguese albums chart. It spawned the singles "Life Ain't Enough for You" with Asia Argento, "These Boots Are Made for Walking" with Maria de Medeiros, and "Hey, Sister Ray" with Rita Redshoes. ~ Jason Birchmeier
