‘Tiger Selections’ is a new album compiled by the students of Riverside Music College that brings together some of the best new and unsigned Scottish independent music around today.
Featuring fourteen bands from all over Scotland, the artists on the album were selected by students as part of their HND Music Business Course in Glasgow and it’s released on their own Little Tiger Records on the 1st of June 2018.
Released on CD and available digitally at all major outlets, the album is a truly brilliant and innovative introduction to some of the best un-signed talent around and includes the lead single; ‘Royal Rumble’ by Glasgow based artist Edwin Organ.

As part of the course, the students run their own independent label Little Tiger Records and actively engage in the whole A&R process of listening and developing new Scottish artists breaking through. This feeds into the students’ academic learning about the creative processes, through to the legal requirements associated with recording and publishing copyright registration.
“I believe the Little Tiger students have assembled an exciting compilation of Scottish artists, which reflects the eclecticism that currently manifests itself in Scottish independent music. The students have been involved in the mastering, design, administration, and distribution processes, liaising with industry professionals in the process.We hope the attention gained by ‘Tiger Selections’ will shine a light brightly on both the artists’ and the students’ creativity”.

To coincide with the release, the students are putting together a special launch show featuring some of the artists on the album at theCCA in Glasgow on Friday the 25th of May, more details about the line up to follow.
