Tyler Neal Band, Folk Family Revival, John Evans, Alex Culbreath
A song means many things to Tyler Neal. It’s a way to connect with the things and people that mean the most to him, a chance to exist in another world for a little while (be it another room or another planet), a journey inward to find his authentic self, and a journey outward to offer it to whoever might be receptive. He’s reaching out to others through music in the way Stevie Wonder, Derek Trucks, and John Coltrane have reached out to him. The Atlanta-based singer, songwriter and guitarist is coming off a two year stint in the last band Colonel Bruce Hampton ever led, and is now building his career, musical ethos, and first solo record around what he learned during that time: The ego is a lie, the moment is the truth, the true Tyler is the goal, and music is the way.
