TIGERTAILZ RELEASE GLAM/OPERA VIDEO FOR “I BELIEVE”:
August 31, 2008
‘I Believe’ featuring Bryn Terfel, Shan Cothi & Tigertailz
Digital release date: Monday 22nd Sept 2008
Abandoning the old adage, ne’er the twain shall meet; the two worlds of opera and glam rock come together on the new single from world famous bass baritone Bryn Terfel, soprano and West End star Shan Cothi, Serendipity Choir, the Lucy J. Morgan Orchestra and notorious glam metal band, Tigertailz. Though both genres have long shared a love of flamboyant outfits, startling hairstyles and over the top stage productions, I Believe is the first time the two have united to bring a song into such vibrant life.
I Believe aims to raise awareness and money for the registered charity Amser Justin Time, set up to provide care and support for pancreatic cancer patients and their families in Wales, as well as funding research into the disease itself.
Tigertailz co-founder and bassist Justin Smith (Pepsi Tate as was to those who spent their adolescence punching the air to the bands commercially and critically acclaimed albums) turned TV director and editor, sadly died from pancreatic cancer last year at the age of 42. His widow, Shan Cothi, is heading up the charity partly in tribute to her husband, but also to help save others from the suffering that both she and Justin had to endure.
Meanwhile, Justin’s musical contribution to this track lives on with his original bass parts remaining fully intact on this re-recording of the Tigertailz original.
