Mark Lettieri Releases New Single and Music Video, “Shimmy Tiger”

Mark Lettieri’s new single, “Shimmy Tiger" is probably the closest thing to a pop song the artist has ever written, even though it’s a six-minute instrumental. The title comes from a little dance his daughter used to do when she was around three years old, which she called the Shimmy Tiger. This track blends 80’s guitar rock and fusion with a touch of Prince’s influence, reflecting much of the artist's creative style.
