Brock Tyler is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist living in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Born in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Tyler grew up in Winnipeg where he learned to play a variety of instruments while hibernating from the icy clutch of unending winters. Using everything at his disposal – his brother's drum set, his grandmother's organ, his high school trumpet, a borrowed piano, and his parents' basement – Tyler eventually emerged with his debut album, Unclosing.
After relocating to Edmonton, Alberta, and following a Canadian tour in support of Unclosing, Tyler worked on several project ideas. He eventually emerged with You Can't Keep The Sun Down which was recorded over four late nights in a church in Edmonton. Herohill called it “fantastic” and Sound Salvation Army described it as “...warm and inviting...this is one worth hearing”. The release garnered attention for its distinct sound defined by the natural acoustics of the church, as well as for the song “On Saturday, Maybe".
Following You Can't Keep the Sun Down, Tyler released two EPs over an eight month span: LIGHTS and Summer Moon. Both again featured Tyler performing most of the instrumentation. The song "The Stars On Your Way" from LIGHTS was played heavily on CBC's satellite radio station Sonica, bringing Tyler's music to new audiences across Canada and the USA.
Tyler has experimented in other genres with the singles "Rainbow Minds" (released as a split single with label-mate Cantoo) and "Don't Break Your Heart", the latter of which features him experimenting with a different singing voice.
Tyler's music has been used in several TV shows including Grey's Anatomy, Awkward, Under the Dome, 13 Reasons Why, The Mist, and others.
