Biography

Tyler Shamy is a 16 year old actor, singer, song writer, and dancer born in New Jersey. Since August of 2007, he has been living in Los Angeles to pursue his musical career as well as acting in film, television, commercial, and voiceover. Tyler works with Grammy Award-Winning producer Christian Davis of Sly Doggie Productions, who produced Shamy's songs titled "Now That I've Found You", "My Note", "U-Turn", "Worth It or Not", "You", & "Goin’ to LA". These six tracks make up his EP titled "Goin' to LA".
Tyler knew at a very young age that he passionately wanted to pursue a career as a performer. Inspired by his father who is a singer, song writer, and pianist, Tyler started writing music when he was about twelve years old and now has over twenty five original songs. Tyler writes the lyrics and melody to his songs. Though not a trained pianist or guitarist, Ty often plays the piano and guitar by ear when writing. Shamy is commonly referred to as a younger version of Justin Timberlake or Jesse McCartney. His music has been featured internationally on radio stations such as New York’s WOR 710, UK’s Taff Air Radio, Dixie Radio Indy, Planet Net Tunes, KWAV.biz, Pop Garden Radio, XF Radio, The Jake Larsen Show, Decades 5, Radio Basile and more. As if that weren’t exciting enough, he will soon be featured on Radio Disney as one of their Incubator Artists. Shamy has also been chosen to be a roster artist on the "School Zone Pop! Tour", in which concerts are performed for middle schools and high schools as fund raisers to support performing arts programs. Tyler enjoys giving back to the community by performing at charity events for Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the Gomez Family Food Drive, and other important associations. Additionally, Tyler is donating one of his songs to the compilation CD “Cure Across the World”- all proceeds are given directly to The American Cancer Society.
Shamy has worked in theatre since the young age of seven and began film, commercial, and voiceover work by the time he reached age thirteen. He can be seen in several independent and short films, an online educational resilience program called "R4POWER" distributed to schools and kids worldwide, a commercial for Sony HDTV, Brett Dennen’s music video "Ain’t No Reason", Monet Monico’s music video "Wait For Me", and a Public Service Announcement airing on the internet. Tyler has also been seen in numerous community, regional, and professional productions of musicals and plays throughout the years including an Off-Broadway showcase and a regional tour. He had the honor of receiving a Perry Award nomination for "Outstanding Young Male Performer in a Musical". Tyler can be heard on three of the acclaimed Kids’ Music Round CDs, as well as voiceovers for a video game and the Educational Testing Service. Tyler consistently trains with highly respected acting and vocal coaches to stay on track with his craft.
Already impressing fans all over, Tyler’s career is sure to be a successful one. Shamy believes that his recent material is more appealing than the tracks on his past demo because he has grown and changed. Moreover, he feels that he has developed the style that he has been working towards for a while. He is recognized for his unique mixture of pop, r&b, rock, and soul. It is a rarity to find an artist that can flawlessly sing such a wide range of genres. Whether a major deal comes his way or not, Tyler plans on completing a full album this year. His goal is to create music to inspire, impact, and entertain. Sometime in the near future, he hopes to tour all around the U.S. and eventually, throughout the world.
Tyler Shamy is represented as an actor by Kate Kennedy Management and AKA Talent Agency. He is a proud member of ASCAP and is represented by Maryatt Music Group for song placement.

Lyrics

U-Turn

Written By: Tyler Shamy, Christian Davis, Jon Meenk

I woke up today
Couldn’t find my way
Feeling so out of place
Like I’m in outer space

I walked down the street
People stared at me
I looked all around for some kind of clue
It was on my shoe
Then I laughed and said

I won’t let this bad day, bad day get in my way
I know I’m better than that
And that’s that
Won’t let this bad day, bad day get in my way
‘Cause you live and you learn
So make a u-turn

I got in a little fight
And everything I tried to make it right was wrong
But life still moves along
(Just say) It’s gonna be okay

Let’s take this back
I want to change the, change the past
I’ll do it right, do It right
But all of the ups and all of the downs happen for a reason
I’ll never stop believin’

I won’t let this bad day, bad day get in my way
I know I’m better than that
And that’s that
Won’t let this bad day, bad day get in my way
‘Cause you live and you learn
So make a u-turn

Make a u-turn
So make a u-turn
Make a u-turn
A u-turn

Seems like it’s all been in my head
Ever since I woke up on the wrong side of my bed
I know it’s happened to you
I guess I should’ve stayed under the sheets
‘Cause now I’m sitting here wondering what life means

I won’t let this bad day, bad day get in my way
I know I’m better than that
And that’s that
Won’t let this bad day, bad day get in my way
‘Cause you live and you learn
So make a u-turn
Bad day, bad day get in my way
I know I’m better than that
And that’s that
Won’t let this bad day, bad day get in my way
‘Cause you live and you learn
So make a u-turn

My Note

Written By: Tyler Shamy, Christian Davis, Jon Meenk

I don’t really like where we’re at so
I think I’m gonna have to go
There’s nothing left for me to say
That we haven’t said before today

It’s not that we haven’t tried
It’s not that we didn’t plan to give our lives
To each other and no other

I guess I’m gonna be on that train
Or maybe I’ll catch a plane
Doesn’t matter ‘cause it’s all the same
We’re both to blame

I just want you to know that it was only you
When it was only you

So here’s my note to tell you that I’m done
As much as it hurts me
Here’s my note to tell you that I’m gone
I didn’t plan to be this way

And now after some time
I still can’t get us off my mind
Wondering how you’ve been
And wondering what could have been

I’m sure you’ve already moved on
And I know we’re right where we belong
Just that you should know
I’m still tryin’ to let us go

Anyway I just had to say
That I hope for you it’s all been great
‘Cause I’ve been enjoying every bit of my life
Just feels strange without you by my side

I just want you to know that it was only you
When it was only you

So here’s my note to tell you that I’m done
As much as it hurts me
Here’s my note to tell you that I’m gone
I didn’t plan to be this way

The way I am
I didn’t plan to be this way
The way we are
I didn’t plan to be this way
So far apart
I didn’t plan to be this way
But that’s just the way it goes

So here’s my note to tell you that I’m done
As much as it hurts me
Here’s my note to tell you that I’m gone

So here’s my note to tell you that I’m done
As much as it hurts me
Here’s my note to tell you that I’m gone
I didn’t plan to be this way

Now That I've Found You

Written By: Tyler Shamy, Christian Davis,

You know what really gets me ‘bout you?
It’s your smile, your simple smile.
Drives me wild.

And every moment I’m with you, don’t wanna take it for granted
Find that I’m crazy about you

I think about us every night and day
Often stumbling of words I might say
When I’m with you and when I’m not I miss you
Yes I do

Hey girl
Don’t you believe me?
If you do then, don’t ever leave me

‘Cause Now that I’ve found you
It’s falling into place
Too good to be true
It’s written on your face
This must be right
Feels too good to fake
Ohh, yeah
Now that I’ve found you

You know what scares me about me?
It’s how easy. It was to fall for you
So uncontrollable, I see
But I got to get myself together
Make it look like it’s just whatever
Take enough time, say enough lines
To make you all mine, it’ll last forever
And ever and ever
So what would you say if I said:

Hey girl
Don’t you believe me?
If you do then, don’t ever leave me

‘Cause Now that I’ve found you
It’s falling into place
Too good to be true
It’s written on your face
This must be right
Feels too good to fake
Ohh, yeah
Now that I’ve found you

Now that I’ve found you
It’s falling into place
Too good to be true
It’s written on your face
This must be right
Feels too good to fake
Ohh, yeah

Who cares what our friends might say?
What do they know anyway?
This is all about you and me.
Let’s not let it end when we’ve become more than just friends

Now that I’ve found you
It’s falling into place
Too good to be true
It’s written on your face
This must be right
Feels too good to fake
Ohh, yeah
Now that I’ve found you

Now that I’ve found you
It’s falling into place
Too good to be true
It’s written on your face
This must be right
Feels too good to fake
Ohh, yeah
Now that I’ve found you

Goin' to LA

Written By: Tyler Shamy

Hey I’m goin’ to LA. Hey I’m goin’ to LA.

Packed my bags this evening.
And I’m ready for the opportunity of my life.
This time I’ll show ‘em what I’m made of.
Won’t back off no way so watch me as I’m reaching for the sky.
Someone told me, “Follow your heart’s desire. Do what makes you happy”.
I lived normal as could be. But that just wasn’t for me. Compelling feelings knocked on my front door.

I’m gonna be myself, yet dressed to impress ‘cause I know this is what my fate tells me to be.

Hey I’m goin’ to LA. Alright. Hey I’m goin’ to LA to make my life.

The ocean breeze and palm trees, sun filled days will greet me as I take this next step.
I won’t try, but I will do.
I gotta make it through.
Nothing’s gonna stop me
Just wait and see
Goodbye-I’m leaving.
It’s my time to shine
Gonna make it happen
Cause I believe in dreaming.
And now I plan to make my dreams come true.

I’m gonna be myself, yet dressed to impress ‘cause I know this is what my fate tells me to be.

Hey I’m goin’ to LA. Alright. Hey I’m goin’ to LA to dance all night.
Hey I’m goin’ to LA. Alright. Hey I’m goin’ to LA to make my life.

What if I fail? What if I fall?
Am I sure that I can take this?
Out there on my own.
What if I just don’t make it?
But I gotta keep pushing through these insecurities.
‘Cause you only get one chance to live your dreams.
That’s why I’m goin’

Hey I’m goin’ to LA. Alright. Hey I’m goin’ to LA.
Hey I’m goin’ to LA. Alright. Hey I’m goin’ to LA.

Worth It or Not

Written By: Tyler Shamy

Sincerely close friends for long
I had that thought
Wrong, wrong, wrong
Must say I’m falling for you
Falling for the way you laugh, your pure smile and pretty face
It’s way too much for me

Something’s changed in me
Now has it changed in you?
Something we just can’t control
I never expected but it’s everything I wanted
I just wanna know what could be

Worth it or not
No one knows
Worth it or not
Should we see how it goes?
You’re telling me no baby you’ve got me asking for more
Give our love a try
Worth it or not
Worth it or not
Worth it or not
Worth it or not

Time could be running out
It’s time to figure out
On the phone I confessed
That I just don’t have a clue of what we should do
So nervous, I’m a mess

What’s it gonna be?
Do you see you and me taking this to the next?
I know that you have concerns
Afraid you might get hurt
But there’s no need to second guess

Worth it or not
No one knows
Worth it or not
Should we see how it goes?
You’re telling me no baby you’ve got me asking for more
Give our love a try

Worth it or not
No one knows
Worth it or not
Should we see how it goes?
You’re telling me no baby you’ve got me asking for more
Give our love a try

Worth it or not
Worth it or not
Worth it or not
Worth it or not
Worth it or not
Worth it or not

I’m not tryin’ to lose what we have now
Not tryin’ to choose
I don’t know how
If you want a change, you got me
If you want the same, still got me

Worth it or not
No one knows
Worth it or not
Should we see how it goes?
You’re telling me no baby you’ve got me asking for more
Worth it or not
Worth it or not

Worth it or not
No one knows
Worth it or not
Should we see how it goes?
You’re telling me no baby you’ve got me asking for more
Give our love a try

You

Written By: Tyler Shamy

You. Oh you
The things you do are so true
Though you’re far away now, I want you to know
This one’s for you

I miss you
I need you
So come back here stranger and
You will see
You will see
What you mean to me
I love you
From the bottom of my heart and soul
Heart and soul

You. Oh you
You are my need for living
My reason for giving
Oh how do you do it?
I don’t know. I don’t know
All I know is

I miss you
I need you
So come back here stranger and
You will see
You will see
What you mean to me
I love you
From the bottom of my heart and soul
Heart and soul

I’ve learned to live with you
You’re the air I breathe
Just can’t believe that you
Could ever stop lovin’ me
And I can’t stand to live without you
It’s not my plan to live without you
There’s nothing more that I can say

I miss you
I need you
So come back here stranger and
You will see
You will see
What you mean to me
I love you
From the bottom of my heart and soul
Heart and soul
