The Tyler Sears Band is centered around its namesake, singer and songwriter Tyler Sears, who needed a band to play his songs live and take the show on the road. “My music mostly is about my life, my experiences, my interactions with people,” Tyler says, “but it can also be about things that I see in the news or things happening in life, maybe not happening to me but something that I felt moved me and thought that I could write a song about.”

The Tyler Sears Band is all about the songs. Tyler started writing songs as soon as he started playing guitar, and over the last 20 years continued to write almost every day, building up a stack of notebooks filled with page after page of scribbled and crossed out and revised lyrics. The songs are about things that happen in everyday life, love, heartbreak, and drama.

The music of the Tyler Sears Band combines a wide range of influences, from country (Brad Paisly, Lucinda Williams) to blues (Colin James, Ben Harper) to rap (Everlast, DJ Kahled) to rock (Guns ‘n Roses, Glorious Sons, Pearl Jam), to mention a view. “I am very eclectic,” says Tyler, “and I like to think that I like all different types of music, you know, and in one sitting I can listen to country or rock and roll to hardcore rap to a ballad, a love song ballad, and stuff like that. Love me some ballads. Right?” Right!
