A singer and songwriter who plays country music with a rock & roll edge, Michael Tyler hails from Thayer, Missouri.
A self-taught musician, Tyler began making music at the age of eight, and he was discovered at the age of 13 by Michael Knox, a producer best known for his work with Jason Aldean
. Knox corresponded with the talented youngster, offering advice on songwriting, for several years before Tyler came to Nashville to play a show at Tootsies Orchid Lounge. Before long, Tyler settled in Nashville and, with Knox's help, landed a publishing deal with Peer Music. Tyler made a name for himself as a songwriter, and his material was cut by the likes of Jason Aldean
, LOCASH, and Dierks Bentley
, who enjoyed a number one country hit with Tyler's "Somewhere on a Beach." After finding success writing tunes, Tyler took the next step and began establishing himself as a performer. Tyler landed a recording contract with Reviver Music
, and in June 2016 he released his first single, "Crazy Last Night." ~ Mark Deming
