Bio

Remember the days when guys like Billy Joel and Elton John would rip it up on the ivories? Jackson Tyler does (despite his young age) and wants to bring the piano back to the forefront of popular music. "Ben Folds set the stage and no one stepped up," he says. Until now. He's ready to take piano music to the next level.

Tyler first laid his fingers on a C-chord at the tender age of five after watching David Lanz perform. He took classical lessons and won a state competition by the age of eight. He studied jazz, gospel and music composition in his teens and wrote his first song at 13. He began his studies at the Missouri State University music program in 2005 where he currently double majors in Piano Performance and Vocal Education.

Tyler's music can be best described as a emotional tornado tap-dancing on the piano keys. "Guitar riffs are a dime a dozen," he explains, "but 88 keys lit on fire are something else." It's soulful like Ray Charles and expertly crafted in a manner invoking Jerry Lee Lewis.

"Life is my largest influence," Tyler says of his music, "followed by my faith, family and friends. I always write my songs with the intent of getting a message or story across. 'Six Sunsets' was written during my grandfather's death and deals with my emotions during that time. I wrote 'The Moon Song' as a tribute to the town of Sombrette, Mexico, one of my favorite places in the world."
