Winnipeg's Tyler Del Pino has a pure passion for songwriting and an honest sound infused with starry-eyed narratives; a hybrid of rock pop, Americana and East Coast folk-rock that stays true to the roots of timeless tunes. File him beside James Taylor for his classic songwriting, Sam Roberts for his roughed-up Canadiana style, Mumford and Sons for their anthemic sing-alongs, and Strumbellas for their thoughtful themes and rosy melodies, born and bred in Canada. Backed by his new band The Brasstronautz, audiences will leave with earworms in their heads and hearts full of optimism.
"The inspiration for 'The Solution' was born at a time when I found myself caught in a whirlwind of thought and contemplation, deeply concerned about the state of our world," explains Del Pino about the focus track from his new EP, Out of a Clear Blue Sky.
"With each passing year, I watch as our planet descends into a more hostile and precarious place to live. From the emergence of regular forest fires to the unsettling escalation of regional conflicts, the relentless rise in inflation, and the growing struggle of individuals to merely stay afloat, I couldn't help but wonder why our global society is hell-bent on maintaining its addiction to capitalism and yet so quick to forget about and dismiss humanity. Driving home one day I began questioning why, as a global community, we found it so challenging to prioritize the well-being of our fellow humans over the pursuit of prosperity. Most songs I write begin with the music and the melody, but this song actually started with the lyrics, because I had so much to say."
