Heartwarming, delicate and comforting, Tyler Ramsey's music showcases a thoughtful approach to instrumentalism and lyricism. Ramsey's experiences growing up in the mountains of North Carolina — a common path for traveling blues musicians — had inspired him to incorporate a wide variety of folk styles. He spent years in pursuit of his own sound, perfecting his guitar playing and experimentations with the piano.
Well-versed in various musical styles, Ramsey found himself using his multi-instrumental skills (not to mention vocals) in many different touring bands. Ben Bridwell, lead singer of Band of Horses, saw something in his guitar style and asked Ramsey to play with the band.
Ramsey's own debut, A Long Dream About Swimming Across the Sea, comes out in January.
