In winter 2005, singer/guitarist Dylan Metrano gathered fifteen friends from the up-and-coming Newburyport, MA music scene and assembled them into a misfit orchestra and a makeshift choir to produce the most ambitious Tiger Saw album to date.
Sing!'s tunes were developed while Tiger Saw were on tour behind their previous and second disc, Gimme Danger/Gimme Sweetness. The tour, which crossed the United States and Great Britain, found the band performing at a myriad of unorthodox venues, from suburban basements and theaters to beaches, forests, and bonfires. These intimate settings led to impromptu singalongs with the audience, and night after night of unforgettable communal experiences.
The ten Tiger Saw songs on Sing! were inspired by these sing-alongs, written to incorporate a large choir, and arranged for the album by Clairvoyants' Brian Dunn. They are linked by themes of friendship, community, nature, and romance, and compose a song cycle performed by the group of friends whose shared history and deep connections are revealed in Metrano's direct and honest lyrics. This album sees core members Metrano, cellist/vocalist Juliet Nelson (Unbunny, Cul de Sac) and guitarist John Ryan Gallagher (The Divorced) joined by pianist Casey Dienel, upright bassist Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors), and drummer Gregg Porter (Unbunny, Little Wings, Hotel Alexis). As on Gimme Danger, substantial contributions are made by slide guitarist and banjo player blindbanjodjim (Milkweed) and Jason Anderson (Wolf Colonel, The Microphones). And also featured are the voices of Nikole Beckwith, Alan Bull, Lindsay Clark, Kryce Clayton, Brian Dunn, and Mary Fahey.
Sing! reveals Tiger Saw evolving from the melancholy, slowcore roots of their earlier years toward a celebratory and joyous, yet still tender sound.
Tiger Saw is from Newburyport, Massachusetts, a seaside town 40 miles to the north of Boston. Founding songwriter Dylan Metrano is the one constant in the band, although mainstays Juliet Nelson and JR Gallagher have accompanied him in the studio and in many a live setting since the year 2000. Sometimes Tiger Saw is just Dylan wandering through an audience singing with acoustic guitar in hand, and at other times as many as a dozen performers augment the live experience with cello, viola, piano, organ, drums, horns, and other assorted noisemakers.
Tiger Saw specializes in the whisper, the waltz, and sweet songs that are jazz in concept, but not in execution. Metrano and his ever-growing band of friends and collaborators are impassioned about performing this music for people all over the world, sharing stories, playing campfires, and creating something special night after night.
