William Tyler
Guitarist William Tyler was born and bred in Nashville and has played with Lambchop, Silver Jews, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Charlie Louvin, and Candi Staton. He currently resides in Los Angeles, most recently released Modern Country, his fourth full-length album, on Merge in 2016. This entirely instrumental recording features an ensemble backing group consisting of multi-instrumentalist Phil Cook (Hiss Golden Messenger, Blind Boys of Alabama), bassist Darin Gray (Tweedy, Jim O’Rourke), and percussionist Glenn Kotche (Wilco). Modern Country is a collection of songs about the vanishing America that still exists on back roads, in small towns, on AM radio stations. Tyler doesn’t offer optimism or pessimism but rather a calm and measured commentary in our age of anxiety.
