Tyler Hilton Bio
A musician and actor, Tyler Hilton has accomplished a lot in his career so far. As a teenager, he released two Top 40 singles. He starred alongside Taylor Swift in her video for “Teardrops on my Guitar.” He played the role of one of his musical idols, Elvis Presley, in the Oscar-winning Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line, and co-starred with Robert Downey Jr. in the acclaimed indie film Charlie Bartlett. He may be most known for his musical role on the show One Tree Hill, which earned him a devoted fan base around the world.

His new album City On Fire, out January 18th 2019, comes from a much more personal place for the California native, who grew up in a family of musicians and songwriters and spent much of his childhood performing and jamming alongside of them. Steeped in country, blues, folk and rock traditions, the album captures the loose, organic musical style that runs in Hilton’s blood.

Hilton remembers trying to explain that style to producers in Nashville as a young songwriter. “I’d play them my favorite records; Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Townes Van Zandt, Weezer’s ‘Pinkerton,’” he says. “I’d just get blank stares like, ‘So…are you rock, pop, blues, country…?’ And the answer was always, ‘Yes, all that.’”

It may not have been the easy answer they were looking for, but as Hilton explains, “there’s a common denominator in all of that music to me. Maybe it’s a feeling of adventure, or rebellion, or just hearing real people,” he says. “Whatever it is, that’s what my feelings sound like, and that’s what the music that comes out of me sounds like.”

Hilton recorded the album both in California with bandmate and childhood family friend, Jaco Caraco, as well as in Tennessee with his former roommate and another longtime collaborator, Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum. Hilton and Caraco had started recording what was supposed to be a side project for film and TV soundtracks in their spare time. Hilton was on hiatus from filming a pilot for CMT, and Caraco was on break from touring in Miley Cyrus’ band. It was during this time that Kelley called Hilton about working together as well. “I knew this was rare, to have both of my favorite collaborators available at the same time. It just hit me, this is way more than a side project.”

That collaborative spirit is in Hilton’s songwriting DNA. He’s written with Taylor Swift and Michelle Branch, co-wrote on Joe Cocker’s final studio album and is currently in the studio working on new music with Billy Ray Cyrus.

For Hilton’s new album, the title track and first single, “City On Fire,” was written around the 2016 election, a period where Hilton found himself listening to a lot of traditional folk songs and western movie scores. “It was strange and comforting to listen to that music during a time of so much change. Everything seemed to be changing,” he recalls. “And then a good friend of mine from high school passed away, and all of my friends came together. I sang some songs, we cried, but mostly we were just left numb and blinking. A lot happened really fast.”

“‘City On Fire’ came out of me really quickly,” he explains. “It was kind of like a dream I should have had, but instead the images came out as a song, a fully formed murder ballad. It was

eerie, but I think it painted the picture just right. It really felt like the city was on fire and a lot was being lost very quickly.”

The accompanying music video was directed by Hilton’s wife, Megan Park, who is most recognizable for her work as an actress (Secret Life of the American Teenager, Central Intelligence) but has recently made waves directing music videos for Billie Eilish, Alina Baraz, Blackbear, and Gucci Mane. For the video, Park teamed with production company PRETTYBIRD, the studio behind videos for Beyonce’s “Lemonade” and Rihanna’s “We Found Love,” and choreographer Andrew Winghart (So You Think You Can Dance, Lorde’s ‘Melodrama’ tour, Kahlid’s 2018 tour).

 

 

Frank Viele Bio
“Frank Viele sings with such urgency that it is as if his very soul hangs in the balance of every note. His ravaged, blue collar vocals convey a poignant desperation. But he’s not a victim, he’s a victor, an advocate for surviving, a champion to all who have sacrificed and struggled just to get by.” (AXS.com)

Making “New Music With An Old Soul,” Frank Viele may very well be the “everyman” of Singer/Songwriters.

A bourbon drinking, cartoon watching, blue-collar entrepreneur; his musical roots started on his grandmother’s piano as a young child, developed as a teen tailgating with an acoustic guitar in the parking lots of Dave Matthews Band concerts, and blossomed on the road as a young adult performing as the quintessential “weekend warrior” in the East Coast Jam and Singer-Songwriter scenes.

Now with the 2015 release of his first full-length album, Fall Your Way, Viele has found himself singing his heart out on stages and radio stations across the country supporting a range of acts as eclectic as his song catalog.

At home on stage with nothing but a stool, glass of bourbon, and an acoustic guitar, or side by side with his power house band, Viele has found himself on stage with modern singer-songwriters such as Pat McGee, Ryan Montbleau, Gavin Degraw, and Tony Lucca, Jam and Rock oriented bands including Blues Traveler, Eric Lindell, Turkuaz, The London Souls, and Zach Myers of Shinedown, as well classic rock legends including The Marshal Tucker Band, Foreigner, Ambrosia, Bret Michaels, and Bob Marley’s Wailers.

As a songwriter, on Fall Your Way, “Viele’s true strength lies in letting you into his world with vivid storytelling. The tracks alternate seamlessly between jazzy versus more “nitty-gritty” blues while all staying relatable, through a constant theme of “romance gone wrong.” (No Depression)

This stylistically eclectic use of instrumentation combined with his perspective as a story teller rooted in traditional folk and blues music finds him not only supporting amazing acts in the live arena, but also performing alongside some of the most talented musicians playing today — In fact, Fall Your Way finds artists the likes of blues guitar great Joe Bonamassa, jam guitar ace Tim Palmieri of Kung Fu, and saxophonist Bill Holloman of Chic, Elton John, and The E Street Band adding their talents to Viele’s music.

Consistently referring to his artistic endeavors as a true “journey” Viele’s experience and dedication to the art of the live show and touring finds him on the road regularly performing over 150 shows a year earning him the title of The New England Music Award’s 2014 “Live Act Of The Year.”

But since the release of Fall Your Way, Viele has been gaining the support of critics too. “Fall Your Way is an endearing mix of easy listening, jazz instruments and funk beats infused with foot-tapping guitar. After one listen, you will be singing along. Frank Viele truly entertains us with the crafting of each song into an enthralling story.” – No Depression

“Combining passionate, soulful, slightly raspy vocals with a HOT, brassy, funky, tight and raunchy backup, Frank Viele has come up with an album that makes you sit up right off the bat. With a good mix of upbeat, full on numbers and acoustic ballads, the 13 tracks are well crafted and sung not only from the heart, but with a whole lotta soul!” – Blues and Roots Music Blog

“Fall Your Way is a rock-solid classic rock album from beginning to finish. It heralds back to days when all you needed was a groovy song and a sunny day for everything to be alright with the world.” – Rust Magazine

“Viele’s efforts is solid Americana pop songwriting. He’s influenced but never copies jazz, power pop, old time country sounds while adding sharp vocals. If this is the direction of indie pop, I’m back on board.” – Ink 19

“Viele delivers a fresh take on rock, soul and blues, taking classic sounds and bolstering them with fiery guitars and smoky-room horns.” – Wilmington (NC) Star-News

“If Viele’s promising solo debut Fall Your Way is any indication, he seems more than capable of setting himself apart from the pack.” – Pittsburgh In Tune

With 5-Star reviews of Fall Your Way drawing comparisons to artists ranging from Bruce Springsteen, Don Henley, Dave Matthews, Ben Harper, and Bill Withers to Jason Aldean, Bob Seger, and Ray Lamontagne, it’s still the 2014 New England Music Awards’ “Live Act of The Year,” Frank Viele’s live show that has been winning audiences over one stage at a time.

“When Viele pulled out the Ukulele, and plugged it in, there might have been divine intervention with Otis Redding whispering into Viele’s ear and sitting next to him. That’s how good they were, producing another one of those moments that sent chills down your back.” – Examiner.com

In an ever-changing, genre defying, musical climate, Viele has found a home on stages and in stereos across the country as an independent artist. Whether pulling at heart strings with an acoustic love song or bringing a crowd to their feet with his unique blend of soul, funk, and rock, the music of Frank Viele is simply a sound all his own… “New Music With An Old Soul.” (Nashville Music News)
