Heartwarming, delicate, and comforting, Tyler Ramsey's music showcases a thoughtful approach to his craft. Ramsey's experiences growing up in the mountains of North Carolina — a common path for traveling blues musicians — 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 many 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 solo debut is titled A Long Dream About Swimming Across the Sea.
