Carina Round - Tigermending
Carina Round's album, 'Tigermending', comes from a painting by Amy Cutler where three women sit in a field dutifully stitching the bellies of a heap of helpless Tigers.
Carina recounts, "The first time I saw the painting I stared at it for a long time not understanding why. The absurd image absorbed me. There was an innocent simplicity to it. The gentle putting back together of something most ferocious and wild mysteriously damaged to the point of submission. I felt an affinity to it."
Produced with Grammy nominated writer Dan Burns, Carina collaborated with some notable champions including the legendary Dave Stewart, Brian Eno, and Smashing Pumpkins' front man Billy Corgan. She released 'The Last Time' single featuring Sierra Swan along with a Puscifer remix of 'Girl and the Ghost' on Limited Edition 7" Vinyl at the end of 2011.
"Making my home in the creative circus of Los Angeles has allowed me the profound opportunity to develop a loving and supportive community of brilliant musicians, artists, photographers, videographers and other collaborators. I've been fortunate to work with and learn from some of my favorite artists old and new, which has opened me up to new roads of expression. Also I've had time and freedom to experiment and explore, especially without the pressure or constraints of a label. Every song in its own way is speaking of really different things. There's guitar ragers, acoustic beauties, electronic epics, a little prog moment and all the good stuff in between but there's a strong backbone running through the whole record."
