Tiger Darrow

NYU Steinhardt Songwriting Scholar Award, 2013

• Bill Wisener of Bill’s Records in Dallas, Texas said of Tiger Darrow in an article published in The New York Times, “Her music is her music, and it doesn’t sound like anyone else.”

• Pete Freedman of Central Track calls her a “talented, alluring vocalist.”

• The Dallas Observer called her “One to Watch.”

• Stephen Becker of Art and Seek: “Darrow’s ready to spread her wings.”

• Robert Jenkins and Nicholas Leggatt: “The talent and energy coming from the ! stage was so palpable that from the first song we knew Tiger Darrow was someone to watch… there’s no reason she shouldn’t be huge.”

• Gadi Elkon, Pearl Snap Discount: “Tiger‘s name invokes a lot of the qualities in !her singing. She’s powerful, vibrant, enchanting and striking.”

• Jessica Harp, Pegasus News: “She is charming and lovable, with the type of personality and talent to make it big. It’s only a matter of time before she takes the world by storm…”

• Scott Straley of AOL’s City’s Best: “In a music world that’s continually bombarded by next-big-thing wannabes with big-time backing and bought-and-paid-for media coverage, every so often an actual diamond finds a way to gleam through the glitz. By all indications, Tiger Darrow has a real shot at that distinction.”
