Adam was born in Charlotte, NC. He began singing at age 5 and got his first guitar when he was 12. The first song he learned to play was “Rock You Like a Hurricane” by the Scorpions, and he never looked back. Starting his musical journey at an early age, he sang in multiple school, and church choirs growing up, but played his first real show with his first full band at age 16.
At age 21 he went on his first tour across America, and has done so every year since then (except 2020). Being a versatile musician, he has played in bands such as Exploding Horse (progressive death metal), Dirty South Revolutionaries (punk metal) and The Hooliganz (oi punk), which has allowed him to share the stage, and tour, with many different styles of artists such as The Exploited, Black Dahlia Murder, Sham 69, Agent Orange and many more. Adam has spent time as guitar player, drummer, bass player and lead vocalist.
Although he has had many different influences throughout his years, his core still remains- Bon Jovi, Van Halen, Motley Crue, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Chris Cornell, White Zombie, and Korn. Adam can’t wait to take his rightful place as the face and voice of the resurgence of real rock and roll.
Born during the early spring of 1987 in Savannah, GA, Aaron began his musical career early when he picked up the clarinet in the 5th grade, moving to the bass clarinet in middle and high school. Realizing the dearth of longevity in that, he joined the school jazz band on the bass guitar at 16 and quickly fell in love with it. Seemingly a musical chameleon, he's played in every kind of band since then- including ska/punk, death metal, and jam bands- allowing him to share the stage with such disparate acts as The Flatliners, Hate Eternal, and Papadosio. More recently, his talents have brought him to the rock and roll renaissance masters, Tyger, where he does his best to integrate the soaring melodies and thunderous rhythms into the driving bass lines that you hear today.
Sam is a Charlotte, NC native who spent his early years as a competitive swimmer competing in regional and national competitions. At 13, he picked up a guitar, learning jazz and heavy metal tunes in search of getting a girlfriend...neither worked!
Sam has been a musician ever since, co-founding the metal band Zeus aka Exploding Horse, contributing to several recordings from the Dirty South Revolutionaries, and appearing with bands Columns and Bred for Disaster before joining TYGER in 2020.
In 2014, Sam co-founded 100 Gardens, a non-profit that establishes aquaponics farming programs in schools and correctional centers to teach career skills, business, and nutrition. You can see Sam's TED Talk "Aquaponics and A New Way of Thinking" to learn more about the work of 100 Gardens.
Sam aims to sow the seeds of rock and roll to those young and old, and sprout a generation of more compassionate people that work for the common good during the day, while raising devil horns to the rock gods at night.
Lincoln county born and raised, Danimal has always been obsessed with drums and rock n roll. He grew up drumming in churches across the state and has been in a couple bands. One of which, shared the stage with national touring artists. His major influences are; John Bonham, Dave Grohl, Bill Ward, Roger Taylor and Taylor Hawkins.
When he was about 13 years old, Kevin picked up the strat his dad had lying around and started to teach himself how to play the guitar. His style is mostly influenced by the Allman brothers, Dimebag, Joe Walsh and Satchel. Some of his more memorable musical experiences include playing Rockstar Uproar, and sharing the stage with Avenged Sevenfold, Maylene & the Sons of Disaster and Sevendust. Along the way while playing in various hard rock and metal bands he picked up some great friends and band mates and together they formed TYGER.
In 2019, lead guitarist extraordinaire Kevin Costner(not that one) was asked to perform a concert in support of a Journey tribute band. He felt the only possible way to show the world what he was capable of was to channel the power and finesse of hard rock legends, Mötley Crüe. So he formed his own band of misfits and monsters from his local rock and metal scene- calling upon former bandmate Daniel Aderholdt to lay down the thundering back beat, with Adam Lane finally fulfilling his front-man fantasy to be Vince Neil. They knew they needed Adam's continual collaborator and sultan of shred, Sam Fleming, and bass master general Aaron Monger to round out the raucous rock group, with their singular focus being entertainment or death.
Having conquered the cover song world, they saw fit to strike out on their own and thus, deep in the concrete jungle surrounding Charlotte, NC, TŸGER was born. From their humble beginnings, they've found a way to clear their own path down the well-trodden trails of classic hard rock and heavy metal, while still carrying a flame for their southern roots. TŸGER harkens back to an era of musical maximalism epitomized by dueling lead guitars, anthemic sing-along choruses, and the predisposition to start a party wherever they go. Audio with attitude, they're equal parts power, harmony, and unpredictability. They look to be the harbingers of a rock 'n roll renaissance.
