Carley Tanchon

 Upton, Massachusetts, USA

Tyler Hilton is both a musician and an actor. He's known as the character "Chris Keller" on the hit CW show "One Tree Hill", and played the role of "Elvis" in the Academy Award winning film "Walk the Line". He has toured with Boyce Avenue, Gavin DeGraw, Colbie Caillat and Gloriana.


Carley Tanchon's album, "Leave the Light On" delivers vibey, evocative pop songs that blend the toughness of Brandi Carlile and KT Tunstall with the soul of Duffy and Dusty Springfield and the raw emotion of Melissa Etheridge and Shelby Lynne. While mostly a rock-driven compilation, Tanchon incorporates everything from R&B to blues to breezy '70s pop and all songs are hook-laden and hummable. Centered around a single theme: the idea of letting go of the reins, living in the moment, discovering your sense of adventure and allowing yourself to be surprised by what happens, Tanchon creates an aura of freedom. "People can so easily get caught up in what they're doing day to day that they can forget to enjoy things. With these songs, I wanted to explore the idea of letting go of the things that weigh you down."

It's an energy that also comes across in Tanchon's invigorating live show. First and foremost, experiencing Carley Tanchon is about being blown away by her voice. So powerful, so clean, so versatile. She hits the nearly-falsetto highs softly and sweetly. She belts out the midrange like the best rockers. She can sultry it up on more jazzy/bluesy numbers as well. Her voice is a fine-tuned instrument. Tanchon built the bulk of her reputation on her live show, and it's not hard to see why: she exudes both passion and prowess, delivering the kind of performance that usually comes from an artist well beyond Tanchon's years and experience. In a way, it serves as an extension of her central idea: allowing yourself to let go, take a risk, and get lost in the thing you love.
