Tyler Edwards is a singer-songwriter from Florence, South Carolina. He began his career in 2008, writing and performing with the rock band I Anthem. After releasing two EPs and an LP, I Anthem achieved moderate success with multiple songs breaking the Top 10 on Billboard's Rock Charts and music featured on MTV and NASCAR. In 2015, Edwards launched his solo career with a 6-song EP, “Too Young for Love” and moved across the country to Seattle, Washington.
Since relocating to Seattle, Tyler has cultivated a strong grass-roots following, building from open-mics to selling out notable venues around the city. The stark honesty and passion that make his live shows so compelling also translates into his recorded work. Ear to the Ground Music notes that “...Edwards has a genuineness about him that makes his album infinitely listenable".
Now, two years after the EP, Tyler is excited to announce the release of his debut full length album! “A Few Good Hearts" gives listeners a personal insight into his past two years of change and growth, and bridge his musical influences from rock to folk and country. With lyrics as a focal point, the music moves in and around the words to paint a masterpiece of verbal and sonic imagery that tells a unique story.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Tyler since he arrived in Seattle and began playing live. Not only is he one of the most hard working, dedicated, and driven people I know but he is also a genuinely nice guy. I’ve seen him grow from playing forty-fifty people shows to nearly selling out Neumos, a 650 capacity venue. I have the utmost confidence that he will continue to thrive in this industry and continue to impact people in a positive way.”
