Tyler Morris has been playing guitar at a professional level since he was 11, and at the ripe old age of 19 is about to release his third album internationally.
Always drawn to Blues and Rock music, Tyler has amassed an encyclopedic knowledge and mastery of a wide range of styes, all of which he applies to his own interpretations and compositions. Tyler’s auspicious 2015 debut, “And So It Begins,” got the immediate attention of guitar fans around the world, with rave reviews and features in guitar magazines and major press internationally. In June 2016, Tyler released his second album, “The Chaos Continues," Vintage Guitar Magazine tapped him to do an Eddie Van Halen video tribute, and the media buzz and attention kept growing.
Tyler’s new album, NEXT IN LINE, is being released February 2, 2018 through the VizzTone label group and Redeye Worldwide distribution. For this album, Tyler worked with Grammy Award-winning producer Paul Nelson (Johnny Winter) and incorporated guest appearances by Joe Louis Walker and the Uptown Horns, as well as the core band of Scott Spray on bass, Tyger MacNeal on drums, Mike Dimeo on occasional keys, and Morten Fredheim on lead vocals. Tyler continues to develop his signature sound — channeling a classic Blues mindset into modern Rock phrasing and syncopation.
Tyler continues to knock out top critics, while inspiring admiration and good-natured envy from veteran musicians! ;-)
"If you think young people are more into pop than rock these days, then say hello to Tyler Morris, an astonishing, 19-year-old prodigy. He breathes fresh new life into a bluesy, classic-rock sound that used to dominate the arenas and is still vital in the hands of an acolyte like Morris. He has diligently studied all the guitar greats from Eric Clapton and Freddie King, to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. The result is an incendiary mix of driving, hard-rock hooks on such originals as "Ready to Shove" and the punchy "Truth." Tyler, who enlists the powerful Morten Fredheim to belt out most of the lead vocals, is remarkably skilled for his age. He wrote all the songs except for Stevie Ray's "Willie the Wimp" (sung by guest legend Joe Louis Walker) and sounds like a seasoned pro throughout. This is an album for anyone who loves old-school rock yet worries it is obsolete. It is very much alive here."

“The first time I heard Tyler Morris play I was astounded at how young he was & the vastness of his feel & lick repertoire. Plus... he could transition from one to the next with complete fluidity & no effort. I hate him. Hahaha.”
- Phil X (Bon Jovi, The Drills)
“Tyler Morris is an exciting new talent that will be around for a long time!”
