Listening to Tyrone with your eyes closed, you'd think you were listening to a legendary soul-singer, which is in stark contrast to the tall, skinny white boy you see on the cover of his album, Snapshot. Not to mention his name is Tyrone.

The summer after Tyrone Wells graduated from Hope International University, his band Skypark signed a record deal with Word records.

2 records and one dove award nomination later, tyrone wanted to explore a solo project. With just his guitar and his voice, tyrone brings a less produced and more intimate offering.

Tyrone's emotion and charisma have captivated audiences throughout Los Angeles and The Orange County in venues such as the House of Blues (LA and Anaheim), The Galaxy Theater, and The El-Rey. Tyrone's independent movement continues to win avid supporters, having sold over 12,000 of his self-distributed records through live performances.

The California native Wells, won the 2004 Orange County Music Awards Best Male Artist, as well as the 2004 UCLA Spring Sing Best Overall & Best Solo Artist awards. Also in 2004, Tyrone had 8 TV placements in “One Tree Hill” (WB), “Rescue Me” (F/X), “North Shore” (FOX), and “The Mountain” (WB).

Tyrone Wells has a classic and powerful voice that can fill a thousand seat capacity room while singing A Cappella, which is demonstrated in his powerful set closer “When All is Said and Done.” Wells' cool-headed stage presence seems to radiate with his love for people and his longtime passion for "music that matters." To quote Tyrone, "Music is the mistress and sometimes obsession that keeps me up at night, pleading for some beautiful resolution."

Along with his current album Snapshot, Tyrone has released Close: Live at McClain's. Wanting his frequent listeners to be involved in the live recording, Tyrone picked McClains, a coffeehouse where he has played weekly to packed houses, for 3 years. Several of the tracks on the live album give listeners a preview of songs that will appear on the next studio album. A DVD of the live performance is also in production for a 2005 release.
