Tyler Bryant and The Shakedown - Interview
Tyler got his first guitar at the age of 6. When he was 11, he sold the dirtbike his parents had just given to him for Christmas and bought his first electric guitar, a red Epiphone Les Paul. While still in elementary school, he met Roosevelt Twitty, a 63 year-old bluesman from Paris, Texas. Mr. Twitty taught Tyler how to play the blues. Tyler has recorded with music producers Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin), Jed Leiber (Jeff Beck) and Roger Alan Nichols. Tyler's song "Who I AM" is featured in Guitar Hero 5. In March 2011, Tyler released his first rock EP, called "My Radio" followed by another EP "From The Sandcastle". The band released their debut album "Wild Child" on 22 Jan, 2013. The present members of the group include Tyler Bryant (lead vocals, guitar), Graham Whitford (guitar), Noah Denny (bass) and Caleb Crosby (drums).
