From the Promoter
Tiger Moon came to be when Kasey Graff and Dan Tait found each other downtown Kelowna. They instantly had chemistry and began performing together at jam nights. Shortly thereafter, the couple fell in love and began putting together set lists and wowing crowds with their rich, harmony-driven sound.
In September 2013, the pair sold all of their possessions and put their treasured belongings in storage to undertake a massive tour around North America; playing, sharing and broadcasting their music to every town they stopped in. They traveled for nearly seven months (in a 1981 Volkswagen Westfalia!) - and over 22,000 kms - circumnavigating North America and constructing a unique, powerful drive to make music along the way.
Kelowna was waiting for their return and they started performing at many different venues; pubs, golf courses, wineries, yacht clubs, on the streets, coffee shops, parties, ceremonies, theatres and even an early morning set at a local bus stop. They spent the winter hosting a jam night and honing their craft at Snowshoe Sam's at Big White Ski Resort - arguably one of Canada's most popular ski bars.
With their second EP entitled Mama Nature’s Finest released in June 2015, the couple packed up again to tour across Canada, this time by train. From Vancouver, BC to Halifax, NS they have shared their music and stories with people on and off the train, eventually making their way to the big beautiful rock of Newfoundland.
The band toured across Canada once again in 2016 - finding hotspots for their music scattered throughout BC and Alberta, as well as throughout Ontario and Quebec. They have since returned home to the Okanagan and are preparing to release their first full-length album.

As a songwriter, Jay threads together the colours of his own ancestral traditions: Dene spirituals, Irish ballads, Canadian folk and rock. He was raised in a family of accomplished musicians on the tundra of Yellowknife, where his music electrifies its never-ending days and nights.
Whether on the main stage of a summer festival or headlining a shadowy cabaret, Jay captivates. He is equally arresting as a solo performer, crooning over acoustic guitar and piano, as the front-man of an eight-piece rock band, baiting dance floors with infectious hooks and boundless energy.
