Man Eating Tiger
Man Eating Tiger
Man Eating Tiger was started by brothers Jason Simpson, (formerly of "For the Last Time", "Ultraman", "Hell in the Cannon", and others), and Owen Simpson ("If Not For The Knife"). We wanted a fun, professional project to focus our creativity.

We tried many talented guitarists and eventually decided that Ryan Metz ("If Not For The Knife"), a long time friend of the brothers, and former band member to Owen, had a great attitude, and was a positive addition to our songwriting. Ryan "clicked" and hours of jamming and songwriting ensued.

Over the next several months a diverse and powerful array of music was created and roughly recorded in our home studio. We began our search for a second guitarist, and after several tries, Robb Martinez, a long time friend, and former member of "ASD", "The Skyline", "Bi-Level", and others, had the schedule and talent that fit. Initially, Robb intended to fill dual roles of rhythm guitar and lead vocals, but as our music evolved into a more technical form, He wanted to focus his talent on vocals, and now is beginning to explore keyboards as an additional tool.

Now, with several shows under our belts, and with our debut CD released, we are taking the local scene slowly, trying to get out of town, and writing another album. All of our music so far has been completely self sponsored, from writing to recording to booking and managing. We appreciate the support of our friends, fans, and family!

Our influences run vast and wide, with many common and uncommon denominators. Together, our focus is to play good music well, and to fall between few lines in our creative process. We want to provide entertainment for our friends and families, and build a fan base that extends beyond the Midwest. Please join us in sharing our music by passing word and music along to your friends and families. Expect approximately a show a month locally, and out of town.

Thanks for your support!

With a sound that blends the nuanced composition of pop and singer-songwriter music with the power and dynamics of grunge, Raviner are a band declaring their own direction in the expansive alt-rock genre. Based out of Nashville, Raviner have constructed a sound that aims to catch the listener off guard, seamlessly shifting from powerful intensity to quiet, careful stillness, and back again.

The group unveiled their sound in 2014 as KAMBER, with the release of their “Hurry Up” EP, and followed up the next year with a single, “War In My Head”. After solidifying their lineup in late 2015, the quartet Raviner began work on a new EP.

Raviner released their first single, "Scarlet", in Spring 2016, a creative departure from the “Hurry Up” EP which solidifies the group’s place in the ranks of dark, grunge-injected alt-rockers.

Raviner's [DISCONNECTED] EP was released in Fall 2016. The band has been promoting their release through extensive regional touring, and self-produced short film content.

"Both placed a lot of care and hard work into the project by utilizing their creative backgrounds to create a specific world for Raviner to thrive in...", - Rasha Shaker, Big City Thoughts

"a surefire favorite for fans of Versa and other like-minded acts" - Kyle Florence, Under The Gun Review

"this alternative band is impossible to pigeon-hole and sets out to break barriers with their genre-crossing compositions." - Shannon Livewell, Livewell's Latest

"Kamber's voice radiates the tracks on their latest EP [DISCONNECTED]. All of the songs work together but are drastically different making each track engaging and diverse." - Jennifer Sparkman, Articles Of Antiquity
