'The songs were overtaken by the times': Artist's reflect on staying creative in an anxious year

“I mean when you ask the question, ‘What was it like to be an artist in 2017?’ I guess my general answer would be like it’s kind of awesome, because we’re presented with this opportunity to suit up and defend ourselves and to just be unapologetic,” says Meghan Kreidler of Kiss the Tiger, one of the Star Tribune’s Are You Local? finalists this year. 


Twin Cities performer faces tough Choice: stage star or rock star?

Lead singer Meghan Kreidler is thrashing her way through the song “Bully,” during rehearsal with her band, Kiss the Tiger.

“Every once in a while you think what it would be like to be someone else,” she shouts, struggling against two guitars, bass and drum in a 12- by 10-foot muffled room.

In the heat and noise, the lyric seems to be the question facing Kreidler.



Kiss the Tiger do classic-rock revivalism exceptionally well, with Springsteen, Patti Smith, and Iggy Pop influencing their sound. Lead singer Meghan Kreidler discovered her love of rock just a couple years ago, and her unbridled vocals are an extension of that newfound passion. But she’s not the only thing to get excited about with this band. On their self-titled debut album, the rest of the five-piece consistently nail an explosive instrumental attack.

It was only a couple of years ago that frontwoman Meghan Kreidler, 26, found her love of rock music. Now, it seems that leading a band is something she was born to do.
