Tyler Bryant, currently 20 years old, is a guitar prodigy who has shared the stage with Aerosmith, Jeff Beck, Heart, REO Speedwagon, Paul Simon, BB King, Pat Benatar, The Arc Angels, Vince Gill and many others. At age 15, Tyler won the Robert Johnson Blues Foundation’s New Generation Award, which recognized him as one of the most promising new artists on the music scene. He has also performed at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago, and was signed by John Huie at Creative Artists Agency on the spot, after his first showcase in Nashville.
Tyler, along with Beck, Santana, and Slash, is featured in the award winning film, “Rock Prophecies,” which is directed by John Chester, and produced by Tim Kaiser (Seinfeld and Will & Grace).
Root Music and Faultline Studios decided to team up and do a show with the band once word was out they were coming to town. Previously, Tyler was on the road without his band for a month doing shows with Jeff Beck and keeping busy writing new tunes for the 4 piece. The day after the Root Music/ Faultline show, Starita and the guys hit the studio to record a new song that the other members of the band had never even heard until they entered the Live room. This obviously was not an issue as the band ripped though an entire day of tracking laying down every part leaving the song only to be mixed. This magical day was fully documented by Volta Videography and will be released on the band’s Root Music Bandpage. Be sure to check their page for the release and catch a glimpse of what life is like in the studio with Tyler Bryant and The Shakedown.
