- Lead Vocals -
Tyler successfully combines a rare blend of countertenor vocal range, musical aptitude, and stage presence to create a dynamic style that is all his own. Born to perform, Tyler has been singing since he was five years old and launched his first band at age 11. His well-rounded resume includes lead singer duties for Hairbangers Ball, Rubber, and ARRA originally from 2007 to 2010. For the past 11 years, Tyler played bass and shared center stage in Hi Infidelity.
Tyler is no stranger to the spotlight off stage as well. He was a high school all-American and four-time State Champion Swimmer. Success continued in the pool for Tyler at the University of Iowa, where he was a Big Ten Finalist and Olympic Trial Qualifier.
Ironically, Tyler jump-started his career in music as a solo act with some modest success as a country artist. He signed one of the first digital publishing deals out of Nashville in the early 2000s, where his work is still available to download and stream on iTunes and Spotify.
Tyler recently stated, "It's incredibly satisfying and humbling to play a part in continuing this Chicago based Classic Rock Band's rich legacy, one that includes three decades of amazing singers like Ron Platt (of the legendary Kansas), John Swenson (Cherry Pie), and most recently Pete Greco (Lounge Puppets)."
