Shot at Wireless...
Tiggs Da Author

Tiggs Da Author doesn't like to shut himself off.

Open, honest and endearing onstage, the songwriter has the same approach to music. Born in Tanzania, Tiggs moved to London as a child and this shift, this exposure to sudden, alien influences seems to have kick-started a search which has yet to finish.

New track 'Georgia' is the perfect case in point. Sampling Northern Soul classic 'Shoes' by Bobby Bland, it sits somewhere between vintage R&B and the grimier moments of East London.

Gritty but poetic, harsh yet beautiful, 'Georgia' is an introduction to a deeply individual pop voice.

Tiggs Da Author comments: "I hope people will see that I’m definitely doing something a little unusual, I love music and I think that comes across when you listen to my songs. I’m not a pop act that’s been put together. This is very much my vision, my execution."

Clash is able to premiere a lyric video, featuring footage shot at Wireless festival. Check it out now.
