Biography

In the grand scheme of things, its hasn't taken Todd Tyler long to make a name for himself as a soulful singer songwriter with big dreams and an even bigger pen. Uniting over four decades of pop, rock,and blues influence. Tyler has remained true to his vision of creating a contemporary rock sound with a bluesy undertone. After breaking away from the hard rock band DTB, the Aiken, SC native was able to realize his goals in the form of weekly songwriting sessions with childhood friend Matt Osteen. Together the two constructed the foundation of the Todd Tyler sound you hear today. Influenced by the time spent in the listening rooms of Nashville, TN, Tyler has crafted an infectious sound all his own.

For the release of his debut album, Bedtime on Berkely Street, Tyler employed his own versatility during the recording process. In addition to writing all songs and music on the record, he also played all guitars, bass and live drums in the studio. Produced by Lauren Stalnecker, Tyler spent one year recording and tweaking the finished product. "Lauren is a talented producer and really understands my style. He has brought some welcomed change to the table and I think everyone will enjoy the progression of the sound." remarks Tyler. Just on listen to Bedtime places the listener side by side with Todd Tyler on his musical journey through optimistic choruses and uplifting jams. Punctuated by a commanding yet smooth vocal delivery, Tyler's music showcases bright acoustic guitar arrangements that intertwine perfectly with string and brass sections, sitting on top of inspirational rhythms.

Having shared the stage with such artist as Rodd Lunn, The August, Kenny George, and Josh Roberts and the Hinges, Todd Tyler's music transcends the traditional boundaries of southern roots rock, bluegrass, americana, and pop. The new workingman's musician, Tyler combines the Small-Town vision of Mellencamp and The Boss with the songwriting prowess of mid 90's pop rocker's Hootie and Matchbox. Enter a mixture of songs that are refreshingly unique yet completely accessible. Tracks such as "People like Me' are peppered with Tyler's souther charm while capturing vivid images and stories from years past.

Bolstered by over 5000 copies of Bedtime on Berkely street sold since October 2007 and a musical spot in SAE's national advertising campaign, Todd Tyler has big plans for 2008. Armed with a few new tunes and his trademark flat cap, he will depart Nashville to hit the open road full time in August. Tyler hopes you can come along for the ride.
