The best kept secret in music


"Paul Anthony"

"Fresh, creative, relatable and honest are some of the words that come to mind while listening to Tyler's music. He never preaches, but instead connects with the listener and walks with them through life. Acoustic pop that isn't cookie-cutter is hard to come by and Tyler's real-life lyrics and clean, scaled back production set him apart as an artist. After listening, you feel like you've made a friend." - General Manager of 90.7 Way-FM in Wichita, KS

"Jeremy Gould"

"Tyler Clarensau has a unique style of writing, comparable to Dashboard Confessional, that not only weaves melodies and lyrics but adds a flavor that is far above his contemporaries." - Founder/Owner of PaperWings Productions

"Dayton Poe"

"The best thing about Tyler's music is his heart. When I ask my teenagers what they thought of his music, I continually heard the same thing, "It was amazing!" Our teenagers really get into music today, to hear them say that means its real to them." - Youth Pastor of Andover A/G Church

Feeling a bit camera shy


Make a difference.

After 15 years of drumming, 10 years on the piano, 6 years playing bass guitar, and 5 years with a guitar in his hands, 21 year old Tyler Clarensau heard this call from God. After playing in countless bands, and touring the nation with two of those (Dear Augustine & Whitley), Clarensau decided it was time to make a difference. Sick of the meaningless songs and shallow entertainment that came from his voice, Tyler has taken a new direction.

Blending acoustic pop, folk, and electronic elements, Clarensau brings something new to the ear. With comparisons such as Lifehouse, Denison Witmer, John Mayer, Matt Wertz, Jimmy Eat World, Jack Johnson, and Shawn McDonald, the talent of Clarensau shines through with every chord and pitch. And with songs about his journey (and struggle) of faith, his marriage, and many of his past experiences, Tyler’s show is one you won’t want to miss.

Tyler is no amateur in the music scene. His songs have been listened to over 87,000 times online (as of 4/25/06), 53,000 of which have been since December of 2005. He has shared the stage with many national touring acts, such as Haste the Day, Sherwood, Bradley Hathaway, Spoken, and Waking Ashland (see attached resume for full list). He has also been a part of numerous “self-released” (no record label support) recordings. As mentioned above, Tyler has toured numerous times over the last year and a half, and played over 150 shows in that time period.

Though Tyler has been in church since the second week of his life (and he’s been a pastor’s kid for the majority of that time), his testimony is one of ups and downs, miracles, and a definite call of God on his life. At the age of 15 in a youth service, he was healed from a genetic leg problem (one that had caused multiple surgeries and therapy), and his story was in Newsweek, Reader’s Digest, and many other national publications. “I’ve seen God work in so many ways in my life,” says Tyler. “But this is still a journey for me. I mess up, I’m so far from perfect, but part of the journey is getting back up again, and that’s the message I want to share with people.”

Another ringing theme in Tyler’s music is the idea of excitement. “Living for God doesn’t have to be boring,” he says with a smile. “Too many people have the idea that it’s just a bunch of rules. God made this amazing world for us to enjoy, and I don’t understand why we act like we can’t have fun while we’re on it!”
