Beginning his career in 2008, Tyler Edwards wrote and performed with the South Carolina rock band, I Anthem. After releasing two EPs and an LP, the band had multiple songs break the Top 10 on Billboard's Rock Charts and music featured on MTV and NASCAR.
In 2015, Edwards launched his solo career with a 6-song EP, “Too Young for Love” and relocated to Seattle, Washington. While there, Tyler cultivated a strong grass-roots by consistently touring and selling out some of Seattle's most notable venues (The Tractor Tavern, Barboza, The Royal Room) and sharing the stage with national touring artist such as Ian Noe, Will Hoge, Nicki Bluhm, and The Steel Wheels.
In 2017, Edwards released his crowd-funded debut full length album, “A Few Good Hearts." A career of independence and determination has crafted Tyler into a hardworking musician and genuine songwriter. On May 1st, 2020, during the Covid-19 pandemic, he released a self produced and recorded EP, "Sincerely, Montgomery." This release and following singles have helped solidify Edwards as an independent artist and songwriter. Tyler Edwards recently relocated outside of Nashville, Tennessee and released his sophomore album "A Falling Sky."
With a 6 year gap between full length releases, this new record shows that the time spent was invested in crafting intensive songwriting and delicate delivery. Recorded over a 4 year span, Tyler worked with longtime friend and producer Jim Stephens to make sure each song held up through a pandemic, distance, and remote recording. The lyrics and music take the listener on a journey of personal story telling and poetic discovery.
This collaborative effort also enlisted mixing by Neil Hampton to mix majority of the album, while featuring additional mixing by Ryan Freeland (Ray LaMontagne, Bonnie Raitt, The Barr Brothers), and mastering work by Kim Rosen (Aimee Mann, Rhiannon Giddens, The Milk Carton Kids, The Avett Bros).
