John Brodeur In The Press

“Pop records like this may be scarce, but when they are of this caliber, they won’t remain under the radar for long.” – Performing Songwriter

Brodeur deadpans his urban pop constructions with the same arrogance as Runt-era Todd Rundgren...” – Amplifier

“...a delicately crafted wake up call... ...a brilliant album.” – Powerpopaholic

Tiger Pop is full of songs with an amusing take on matters of the heart. It’s funny in a bittersweet way.” – New York Post

“Fierce and rough yet beautiful and memorable, this is an outstanding album.” – Ink 19

“A fantastic collection of classic guitar pop...” – The Big Takeover


About John Brodeur and Tiger Pop Ten

New York musician John Brodeur has launched a major nationwide tour in support of his upcoming Tiger Pop Ten double CD, a set that includes the now out-of-print, critically adored 2001 album Tiger Pop along with an all new, full band re-make of the album, appropriately titled Tiger Pop Ten.

The new CD also includes a band new track, “Masterpiece” (MP3). The song displays Brodeur’s greatest strengths, easily and breezily showing off why his tunes have earned such praise over the years. This addition to Tiger Pop Ten was written just as the original album was completed.

To kick off the Tiger Pop Ten tour (which includes more than a half-dozen performances at next week’s SXSW festival), Brodeur performed the album track “Confidentially” on Philadelphia’s NBC-TV morning program “The 10! Show.”  See the performance here:

Tiger Pop Ten is a celebration of the relationships that went into it – something we can all share as a reminder of our time together,” Brodeur says of the collaborative nature of the new version. “Without road maps – the original Tiger Pop sessions were quite carefully plotted – the songs found their own identities. They’re still part of my DNA, but they’ve also become their own beings.”

See below for tour dates.  John Brodeur is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
