WE’RE ALL SOMEBODY FROM SOMEWHERE has already collected rave reviews:
‘”We’re All Somebody from Somewhere” – Tyler’s first solo album – plays to his strengths: inventive melodies, angelic harmonies, a juxtaposition of swagger and sensitivity, and room for that acrobatic voice to soar and strut.”
“…one of the top albums by a male vocalist this year so far from Nashville.”
Sounds Like Nashville
“…’We’re All Somebody From Somewhere’ marries his raspy, unmistakable vocals with relatable lyrics and countrified sonics.”
Rolling Stone Country
“…’We’re All Somebody from Somewhere’ isn’t only sporadically enjoyable, but also worthy of serious appraisal.”
