Ty Dillon is an American country singer/songwriter based in San Marcos, Texas. Originally from San Antonio, Ty left his hometown in 2012 to pursue a degree in music business from Dallas Baptist University. After beginning his career as a performer, Ty made the decision to move to the hub of Americana and Texas music songwriters: the hill country of Texas. He was regularly performing original tunes in San Marcos at the historically renowned Cheatham Street Warehouse, where Kent Finlay hosted Songwriters Circle every Wednesday night. Like many "Cheatham Street greats," Ty began performing with his band as often as possible at Cheatham, following in the footsteps of legends such as George Strait and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
He began recording in the winter of 2012 and released his five-song debut EP in 2013. Some of Ty's very first original tunes are included on the EP. After assembling a band (known as The Wilde Fire), the group began playing all across Texas while preparing a full length LP. In 2015, Ty put out the record, Sunsets And Pickups. Sunsets And Pickups was produced by Matt Adler at Splendid Studios in San Antonio, Texas. Sunsets And Pickups is a compilation of some of the very first songs Ty had written. Sunsets And Pickups was inspired by the adolescent life of Ty and stories once told by his close friends. It's about lessons learned while growing up in a small community, whether that be a small town, or a university where Ty took his first steps into the country music scene. Most of all, the title track uncovers myths and truths behind contemporary blue collar living. The record features a handful of notable musicians such as steel player Wayne Dahl of Martina McBride, banjo player Austin Davis and bass player James Hertless of the Josh Abbott Band, and Milo Deering who has played multiple instruments on albums done by Granger Smith, Josh Abbott, Eli Young Band, Aaron Watson and many others. Ty is currently on tour promoting Sunsets And Pickups.
A second album is currently being recorded and is set for an early 2017 release.
This show is 18+. Minors will be charged an additional $5 at the door.
