A born and raised San Diegan, Tyler began playing bass at the age of 13 when his middle school friends decided they needed to start a garage band. As fate would have it, bass was the only instrument that Tyler’s friends didn’t want to play and his passion for the instrument was born. In high school, Tyler was introduced to soul music and shortly after he moved up Seattle to attend the University of Washington and continue pursuing his music career. While playing local shows, Tyler and Allen Stone were connected, the stars aligned, and Tyler joined the Allen Stone team soon after.
Tyler has since moved to Los Angeles and maintains a busy schedule doing session work when he is not on the road with Allen Stone.
