Feeling a bit camera shy

His vocals are outstanding, with a warmth and authenticity rare for someone his age. His songwriting is way beyond his years and convey powerful emotions that you can experience in songs from "It Could be You" to "Avalon". He has a great band of him plus 4 guys and Tyler is comfortable on both guitar and piano.
