Tyler Bryant lives for music. Passionate about expressing himself and connecting with others through his songs and sounds, Tyler moved to Nashville from Honey Grove, TX when he was 17 to write songs and start a band. He has pushed the musical limits of guitar, vocals, and performance, and has captured the attention of the music scene with his spectacular talent and rare showmanship.
Tyler Bryant is a guitar prodigy who has shared the stage with Aerosmith, Heart, REO Speedwagon, Paul Simon, Jeff Beck, BB King, Pat Benatar, The Arc Angels, Vince Gill and many others. At age 15, Tyler won the Robert Johnson Blues Foundation's New Generation Award, which recognized him as one of the most promising new artists on the music scene. He has also performed at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago, and was signed by Creative Artists Agency on the spot, after his first showcase in Nashville.
Tyler recalls a musical turning point at age 11, when he walked into a music store in Paris, Texas and heard 63-year old bluesman, Roosevelt Twitty, on guitar. "He was playing a Lightning Hopkins song," Tyler says. "He was just sitting in the corner of Holly Bond's Music store, and was singing and playing with such emotion that something translated deeply, and I wanted to understand. I knew I wanted to play. Whenever you hear someone with that much soul, when they really believe what they are playing, it's so inspiring."
Tyler's musical influences include the inspirations of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, The Black Crowes, and Jeff Beck. Tyler, along with Beck, Santana, and Slash, is featured in the award winning film, "Rock Prophecies," which is directed by John Chester, and produced by Tim Kaiser (Seinfeld and Will & Grace). "Rock Prophecies," is now airing nationally on PBS and is available on DVD. Also, this past year, thousands of kid's across the world have been playing Tyler's song, "Who I Am," since its release on Guitar Hero® 5.
Tyler has been busy recording and songwriting with some of Nashville's best. He recently released his first EP, "MY RADIO" and just finished up a Spring tour opening for Jeff Beck. Tyler will begin recording new music this Summer. He will also be doing a headlining club tour with his band, and in October he will be going back out on tour with Jeff Beck all across Canada and the Northwest USA. With a fearless obsession for his art, Tyler Bryant is advancing his music without limits.
"To be 18 and play like this kid is the rarest of the rare. Hands down a future guitar god." –Vince Gill
