TIZ MCNAMARA has gone through many ups and downs in his life. It’s just the little things that got in his way, which, indirectly told him that a new ‘path’ was needed.
The lesson is not of the difficulties and challenges, but, in Tiz’s case, he understood those hints that life was telling him. This fabulous offering does its best to help us connect.
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’.
