Experience The Evolution Of Tiger Kid With “Drive”

Renowned rocker Michael Canton, also known as Tiger Kid, heads in a bold new direction with his new single “Drive.” Hailing from the vibrant music scene of Los Angeles, California, Tiger King has evolved into a full five-piece band. Combining the raw energy of late 90s hard rock with a modern alternative twist, this track is a must-listen for music enthusiasts seeking something new for their playlists.

The Band

Led by Michael Canton as the lead vocalist and guitarist, he’s joined by Gaston Brey on lead guitar. Keith Erickson is on drums, Cason Cohen plays bass (and adds vocals), and Anna Montgomery is on keyboards. This diverse lineup brings a rich musical tapestry to the table, resulting in a captivating and well-rounded sonic experience.

Finding Inspiration

In Canton’s own words, “Drive” captures that longing to escape from the challenges life throws our way. It embodies the desire to break free from stagnant relationships, dead-end jobs, or a sense of being trapped, and simply hit the open road in search of new beginnings. The song follows the journey of someone who has made this courageous decision and is undergoing a transformative rebirth through change.


Tiger Kid draws inspiration from various musical genres, including metal, alternative rock, 80s classics, and New Wave. However, the band’s current sound is heavily influenced by the likes of Foo Fighters, Coheed and Cambria, and Muse. By channeling the vibes and attitudes of these iconic acts, Tiger Kid crafts a unique blend of anthemic rock with a contemporary flair.
