Tyler was born and raised in northern New Jersey. He began writing songs at the end of high school, and went on to start his first band, “Riverbank," while attending Penn State University. After graduating from college, Tyler moved to Los Angeles, California and joined a country cover band. He quickly broke off from the group, however, to perform his original music. He played his music throughout Southern California for over a year and released his first EP on July 13. He now resides in Nashville, TN and is continuing to write and perform.
