Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter, Ben Rector, from Tulsa, Oklahoma is releasing his fourth album and is embarking on a headlining tour in 2013.

Rector is no stranger to the road; he has toured incessantly, rapidly growing a legion of fans and selling out most dates on his previous two headline tours. This rapid growth culminated in the release of Something Like This on September 13, 2011. The record was the #1 Singer Songwriter album 5 minutes after its official release, and it climbed above Lil' Wayne's Tha Carter IV to the #4 spot on iTunes overall album charts, bested only by Lady Antebellum's same-day release, Coldplay, and Adele. Following the release of Something Like This, Rector hit the road again, opening each night on NEEDTOBREATHE's coast-to-coast "The Reckoning" tour. Rector released his third album Into The Morning in February 2010, and it quickly climbed to #5 and #10 on the iTunes Pop and Overall charts and #11 on Billboard Magazine's Top Heatseekers chart. In a year and a half, the record went on to sell 15,000 albums, and over 60,000 singles independently. Rector's songs have been featured on networks such as ABC, USA, Lifetime and MTV.

Tyrone Wells is 6 foot 4. He’s bald because he’s never really liked his hair, so he just shaves it right off. He’s a white guy (a surprising fact to many). He has four older sisters. He originally hails from Washington State. His dad taught him how to yodel. He wanted to be a pro athlete, but wasn’t even close to having what it takes. He picked up an acoustic guitar and fell in love. He’s writing this bio. He’s referring to himself in the third person. He believes Jesus is for real. He loves being a husband and a father. He’s really normal and totally un-amazing. He tours quite a bit. He’s trying to find some sort of balance in this crazy busy world. He’s thinking about going back to a good old-fashioned flip phone. He’s never written a “hit” song, but some people really like them anyways. He hopes you are “some people.” He thinks maybe some day he will write a hit song, but he acknowledges that he also thought he would be a pro athlete. He likes to think that he sings from his soul. He is super stoked that you’re checking him out right now. Thanks for reading & listening. Peace.
