Bio

Outside of the industrial ruins of early 20th century boom towns where steel mills and coal mines thrived, and the rails were king, Cody Tyler & Gypsy Convoy are forging their own path through the foothills of Appalachia. With a long history that dates back to the colonial era, Cody Tyler’s family has hunted the hard timbers, tilled the fields, worked in the mines, and sweated in the steel mills of Pennsylvania for generations. Cody’s father, a third-generation trucker, inspired Cody’s love of country music and hunger for the open road from a young age. You might even say it was bred into him. At just 25 years old, his musical journey has barely begun, but his yearning to travel the open road on a song has already taken him all over the United States as a solo artist. Now is the time to get Gypsy Convoy rolling, too.

Cody and the Convoy may be from above the Mason-Dixon line, but they have forged a country and honky tonk sound of their own that tips its hat to the blue collar men and women of the Keystone State’s Appalachian heartland. Gypsy Convoy, are a collection of battle-tested musicians that have collectively earned their stripes sweating it out in bars and honky tonks across the state for decades.

In 2020, the Central Pennsylvania Music Hall of Fame nominated Cody Tyler & Gypsy Convoy for two Central Pennsylvania Music Awards for Best Male Vocalist and Best Country Act. Cody was also a Top 150 vocalist for Season 14 of NBC’s The Voice, reaching the executive producer callback auditions in Los Angeles. In 2019, the band were the runner-up in the Tumbleweed Country Music Festival Rising Star Talent Search, which featured over 300 country music artists from the United States and Canada. The band was also a Top-3 finalist at the 2018 I-105 WIOV Showdown in the Park.

Currently, Cody Tyler & Gypsy Convoy are hard at work on their first EP which encompasses the sound Cody describes as "Black Dirt Country." Because the band is from Pennsylvania where the fertile farmland tilled by the Amish for centuries meets the rocky soil of the Appalachians, the dirt there is far from red. Cody opines that the sound of the band "ain't much different, either." All five tracks have a fresh sound and even added verses that breathe new life and emotion with the help of the band.
