Tiggs Da Author
Having moved from Tanzania to London at the age of eight, Tiggs Da Author is a particularly individual proposition. As influenced by obscure 60s documentaries as he is by east African Jazz, Grime MC Dizzee Rascal and classic Motown acts, the 26 year-old multi-faceted poet, rapper, singer, songwriter and producer is truly one of a kind.
Supporting the likes of Jess Glynne, Lady Leshurr and Rag n Bone Man, Tiggs was a fixture on the festival circuit in 2016, and his acoustic performance on BBC2 at Glastonbury prompted Chris Martin of Coldplay to call him ‘amazing’. If you don’t yet recognise his name, you will almost definitely recognise his work, as single ‘Run’ featured on FIFA 16 and the soundtrack for Bridget Jones’ Baby. As well as Lady Leshurr, Tiggs is currently working with Show N Prove, Futurecut (Rihanna, Lily Allen) and Mark Ralph (Years & Years) to produce his first album. We can’t wait to have Tiggs’ trademark energy and flow join us at Ballinlough.
