It's really cool and also kind of sad that guitarists come cheap in Nashville, and not just wayward idlers who like to
pretend to pick but serious guitar players, guys who could all have their own recording contracts if they played the game
right. That makes for some very stiff competition but also creates an environment where everyone is pushing each other to
be better. It is in that spirit that William Tyler has come into his own. He started out as a hired gun in Nashville and thanks
to his exceptional playing, his talents were rewarded with a record deal. Now his first album is out and everyone is taking
notice. Head over to StubHub to purchase William Tyler concert
tickets to see what all the fuss is about!
From his days as an uncredited hero on many well-known recordings lending his skillful riffs to make those songs just perfect,
William Tyler is now standing front and center, and for those who were familiar with his work, they all know it's about darn
time. Tyler has performed and recorded with the likes of Charlie Louvin, Lambchop and Bonnie "Prince" Billy, and all were
amazed at the young artists talents and encouraged Tyler to strike out on his own. With the support of his colleagues and
a few die-hard fans, Tyler worked his way into the studio to record an acoustic album, and those tracks have quickly garnered
some serious attention.
One look at William Tyler's extensive and eclectic resume reveals his varied music interests and unusually adaptable style.
He's backed up nearly everyone who's anyone in Nashville, each with their own unique style, and Tyler has impressed them all
with his uncanny ability to elevate their sound and take it in a new direction while remaining true to the artist's roots.
That range of talent and interests has helped Tyler forge a personal sound that dabbles in everything and is unafraid to take
risks, the kind of sound Nashville has been waiting for and the kind audiences can't get enough of.
Now that William Tyler is standing in the spotlight and everyone is realizing what an incredible talent he is, fellow artists
are lining up to collaborate with him and sample his captivating sound. But Tyler is doing his best to play it close and go
solo for a while, concentrating on honing his sound and sharing it with fans old and new. What's drawing so many to his side
and stage is his breadth, his ability to oscillate between sounds and genres and blend them together to create something layered
and fresh, and he does it all with remarkable ease.
2010's Behold the Spirit, William Tyler's first album under his own name, was celebrated as one of the most vital, energized
albums by an American solo guitarist in recent history, and the amazing talent he displayed on the album established him as
a clear star, a guitarist who would no doubt do great things for music, and Tyler continues to live up to those expectations.
He's not a perfect musician or performer, and that's just how he and his fans want it. Score rock
