The Gentleman Outfit

The Gentleman Outfit

 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.


The Gentleman Outfit is an amalgam of styles: On one hand, it is a product of hundreds of hours spent realizing the importance of harmony and poetry listening to artists like Dispatch, Jason Mraz, Ben Harper, Counting Crows, and The Spill Canvas. On the other, the band's acoustic personality is heavily influenced by rhythm-dominated rock, a trait that manifests itself in the form of tight stops, hooks, and overall heavy-handed rock enthusiasm (think Fall Out Boy, Manchester Orchestra, Breaking Benjamin, Rage Against the Machine). Although stylistically versatile, The Gents often find themselves relaxing into reggae-flavored grooves a la State Radio and Sublime. All of these different and distinct sounds find a place in The Gentleman Outfit's music.
