Growing up, Tyler Lyle vowed never to go into music when he got older. “As a kid we were always taking family trips to Nashville so my dad could play the Bluebird Cafe or attend some songwriting symposium, and I resented the city for stealing my vacations away,” recalls the West Georgia native. But at age 15, he haphazardly picked up his father’s guitar, quickly mastered a few chords, and soon started writing his own songs. Lyle released his indie-folk debut “The Golden Age & The Silver Girl,” solely through Bandcamp—which was named one of the top 10 albums of 2012 on NPR’s World Cafe. In 2013, he was awarded the Abe Oleman Scholarship for songwriting presented by ASCAP and the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. In 2015 he released his sophomore album “The Native Genius of Desert Plants” which featured the single “Feel Free” which debuted on LA’s KCRW. His music has been featured in dozens of television shows like “Hart of Dixie” “The Fosters” and “Private Practice.” This year he’s been working on a music subscription service from his home in Brooklyn.
