Tiz McNamara - folk singer-songwriter from Ireland
Tiz McNamara is an Irish singer songwriter and drummer who has racked up over 9.5 Million streams on Spotify with his independent releases. Before his first birthday, Tiz lost his father and two brothers in tragic accidents which have shaped his debut EP dedicated to his father and brothers who’s anniversary falls on the release date.
Originally a drummer since the age of 3 Tiz went on to study a music degree course in the prestigious Liverpool institute for Performing Arts. In his second year at LIPA, Tiz narrowly avoided having his foot amputated after a Piano fell on it, but the injury was so severe it forced him to swap his drums for a guitar in order to continue on the course. Shortly after changing instruments Tiz took up singing and began to write his own songs including his first ever penned tune ‘Falling Asleep’ which appears on this debut EP ‘April Fool’.
McNamara’s songs have featured on UK TV shows ‘Hollyoaks’ and 'Emmerdale' as well as gaining support from some of the industry’s heavy weights including BBC Radio 2, Amazing Radio and NME. Tiz has toured with BRITS ‘Critics Choice Winner’ James Bay. The Irishman was delighted to be asked to sing alongside one of his musical heroes Sir. Paul McCartney, as well as Robbie Williams, and Shane McGowan under the name 'The Justice Collective'.
2020 is set to be the biggest and most exciting year yet for Tiz with the release of his debut EP 'April Fool' on May 6th
