The Paper Tigers

Formed in early 2006, The Paper Tigers arose from a couple of rockers' desire for something a little different, something that would stand out from the crowd. Inspired by an eye-opening stint in the bluegrass mecca of British Columbia, founding member- and Tragedy of the Commons frontman- Jeremy Wishart (vocals, guitar, mandolin) recruited ex bandmate Greg Brown (guitar, vocals) to write and perform a few songs.
