"A refreshing, medicinal musical experience. Tyler Herring is a must hear for any ear connected to an old soul."
"I've always been drawn to the sounds of the old...music rooted in spirit, songs that build community...vibrations that resonate the soul, words that ignite thought. This is the music I strive to create. It wasn't until 2007 attending Full Sail University that I understood the technology enough to see the potential it held. Having literally any sound I could imagine at my fingertips while incorporating the organic tones that attracted me to play music...the concept was fascinating to me. Since the beginning of mankind, music has been the bridge transcending language and culture, medicine for illnesses, the fact that frequencies can literally change matter...in a time of major shifts on this planet...the possibility of healing through music rooted in truth and love is powerful."
Tyler began his musical journey in 2006 when receiving his first acoustic guitar shortly after graduating high school. Being raised on a cocktail of legends from the crescent city, Herring build a solid foundation onto which he would incorporate themes from influences in other musical veins such as Xavier Rudd, John Butler, Rising Appalachia, Andy McKee, and Erik Mongrain. From an instrumental piece with a single acoustic guitar to a ten piece one man orchestra Tyler is redefining performance. Touring thousands of miles across the United States and appearing on television and radio...Tyler Herring is quickly becoming a sound contagious to all it touches.
"My roots are filled with a plethora of talented musicians, so it has always been in my blood. I found I got bored very quickly with the four chords I knew on the guitar. Thankfully it was this built in craving for unique sound that lead me to the breakthrough of the open tuning and the idea of hooking an iPad up to a loop pedal. Imagination is just as important as talent. I want to create an experience that connects people to their truth, each other, and the earth. Put simply by one of the great poets of history..."when two violins are placed in a room, if a chord on one violin is struck, the other violin will sound the note...if this is your definition of hope...this is for you"
