Alanna Blair (TGRbass)
Alanna is a musician powered by Memphis groove, New York energy, and Los Angeles swagger. Classical piano training led to mallet percussion, rock n roll led to bass guitar, and church choir led to a powerful voice ready to harmonize.
Alanna rocks out on bass guitar and vocals as Tiger. With flavors of hair rock, riot grrl, and punk, their original music is big and often funny. In NYC, Tiger contributed bass, vocals and songwriting to bands like @sumpumps, @justfabulousband & #sababarocksyourfaceoff, playing in like in venues like Niagara, Otto’s Shrunken Head, Mercury Lounge, Trash Bar, and Kenny’s Castaways. Always quick to shift genres, Alanna also played and sang in Vasthy Mompoint’s folk-inspired band at venues like 54 Below and Bowery Poetry Club.
Simultaneously, as TGRbass, Alanna DJed in NYC’s most notorious basements and lofts, and in venues like Elsewhere, Good Room, Webster Hall, LPR and The Lot Radio. They and their friend Illexxandra create playfully genderfluid dance music as Ajazent, with releases on Black Marble Collective’s RAVETOOLZ and District 160’s BREATHE. TGR DJs a weekly pirate radio show with TankTop NYC; catch ‘em live on DNBRadio.com every Monday 4-5PM ET/1-2PM PT.
Now the TGR has landed in Los Angeles, ready to add their sounds to the West Coast when the time arrives. TGR’s mission is to advance equity toward BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ presence and leadership in currently white-centered, heteronormative rock and electronic genres.
