Union Specific is an indie country, rock, synth, electric, folk band from Austin, TX. Does all that really fit together?
Singer/songwriter, Tyler Wallace seems to think so. Tyler was born and raised in the tiny West Texas town of Gail. Good luck finding that on a map. He has spent the last decade living, and playing music in the city he loves, Austin, TX. That’s a lot of country roots, tangled up with urban living. And, sonically it’s all right there in the music. Steel and acoustic guitar are thrown in the same mix as drum machine and synthesizer with Tyler’s unmistakably broken voice above it all.
Union Specific has been making music and touring since 2008. In 2012 the band was given an official SXSW showcase, opening for Ian Moore. In 2014 Union Specific headlined the Lincoln Folk and Roots Festival along with Wild Child, and Austin Lucas. They have also performed regularly at the legendary venue, Codfish Hollow sharing bills with Mark Mulcahy (of Polaris) and The Ghost Wolves. Union specific has also recorded two sessions for the online streaming site, Daytrotter, as well as Austin’s beloved KUTX, Studio 1A.
The band has released two LP’s: Diesel Engines and Kerosene Visions 2013, and Howlin Room 2015. First Burn, Then Change will be released in 2019 and is the first US record to solely feature Tyler’s songwriting.
