NASHVILLE, TN (September 21, 2018) – The odds may be one in a million, but TYLER RICH is willing to invest. The Northern Californian, who gave up a job in finance to chase his musical dreams, today releases his self-titled EP on The Valory Music Co. The four-song project features Tyler’s SiriusXM chart-topper “The Difference,” which is pulsing through Top 30 at terrestrial radio. Produced by Big Machine Label Group President/CEO Scott Borchetta, Julian Raymond and Lindsay Rimes, the lead single scored Tyler’s first national television appearance on NBC’s TODAY and has surpassed 22 million streams. Michael Knox is credited on the remaining tracks – “Adrenaline,” “11:11” and “Take It Or Leave It.” GET TYLER RICH EP NOW: https://tylerrich.lnk.to/EP.
“Today’s the day! I’ve been lucky enough to play some of these songs out on the road, and seeing fan reaction has been really encouraging,” said Tyler. “I think this EP is a pretty solid preview of who I am as an artist, and I can’t wait for more of you to hear it.”
Tyler’s music reflects a personal journey from playing Pop/Rock in Los Angeles to his solo Nashville ventures and finding sonic inspiration from childhood idols like Garth Brooks. People dives in with him on the songs, the loves of his life and going “From Red Robin to Hitting No. 1.”
In conjunction with the EP release, Tyler recorded a special Amazon Original cover of Michael Jackson’s iconic "Billie Jean." Check out a tease here and listen to the full version exclusively on Amazon Music.
Bolstering the celebration, Tyler will step into the hallowed circle on the Grand Ole Opry stage for his first time next Tuesday (9/25) at 7:30P. Knowing the honky-tonk heroes who have sang from that very spot in the legendary venue before him fuels both his adrenaline and nerves. “This is definitely one of those life moments that seem too surreal. I’m really honored to be given a chance to play at The Opry, and I hope I do it justice for all those who’ve come before me,” shared Tyler. The night will continue for fans who want to meet the rising star during an EP signing at the Opry Store beginning at 9:15P.
Rolling Stone attests of the Artist You Need to Know, “the newest member of country music’s radio-minded incoming class [has] a homecoming king’s swagger and a valedictorian’s songwriting smarts.” Tyler will bring his sold-out West Coast headline show stamina and vivid lyrics to stages across the country this fall on Brett Young’s CMT ON TOUR: HERE TONIGHT, performing live versions of the new songs and a look at his diverse influences.
