BurningTireSmell came to be after a bet with a the rock band Murgent. Tyler bet that if he ever went solo he would name the band something dumb like "BurningTireSmell" a year later he stuck to his promise. Embarking upon clever lyrical writing and a unique style of playing that mixes both pop and rock into an acoustic guitar that screams "really, its not country or emo." The style of BTS is very unique. There can be one song about serious subjects, just to be followed up by a humorous parody or clever funny original. There is something for everyone with BurningTireSmell.
