Nashville’s William Tyler

William Tyler - 2014 Best Instrumentalist in Nashville

Nashville, TN – While in Nashville last week on a two-day promo shoot for prominent Philadelphia blues guitarist, Mark Kormanik, I was introduced to another American guitar sensation – William Tyler. To say his style is vibey and eclectic is quite an understatement. To quote Rolling Stone Magazine, “William Tyler may be a born-and-bred Nashvillian, but his cosmic guitar stylings extend way beyond the Grand Ole Opry. His incandescent, resonant finger picking might evoke a modal Indian raga one moment, an Appalachian folk drone the next, or even celestial Eno-esque ambience – all within one song.” Or as Tyler explains, “What I do exists in this in-between sphere of experimental avant-garde and pop music…”

2014 has been a good year musically for William Tyler – being selected as one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s “Young Guns” (most notable guitarists from the next generation of six-string legends) and one of RS’s, “10 New Artists You Need to Know”.  Additionally, Tyler was voted Nashville’s “Best Instrumentalist” for 2014. Checkout his masterful fingerpicking on his upcoming release, “Lost Colony“.
