Tyler Ramsey

Biography

Tyler Ramsey's hometown of Asheville, North Carolina features a music scene where a tight-knit community of players always share the stage, and no one is in just one band. Amid all the recording studios, listening rooms and PBR-fueled bars of Asheville, Tyler stands out. As a formidable talent on guitar, piano, bass, percussion, and vocals, the name Tyler Ramsey has become synonymous with awe-inspiring talent, taste and style.

Ramsey is best known for his guitar work. Crafting delicate, finger-style guitar picking reminiscent of John Fahey and Leo Kottke, but with a sum effect that is all his own. Whether it's indie folk, country blues or finger style guitar - Ramsey is a composer of intricate, ethereal songs of melancholy and rumination. It's taken Tyler some time to get to this point. Tyler has spent years perfecting and honing his sound. It's been a journey that has taken him through many different genres of music, numerous and varied bands, and all around the world. While living in the mountains of Western North Carolina he immersed himself in the varied folk styles of the area. Inspired by the traveling country blues musicians that used to pass through the mountains, Tyler spends his time experimenting with his piano and guitar playing while continuously honing his craft as a songwriter and instrumentalist. He is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist who is always willing to sit in with friends or jump on board a promising project, no matter what the musical style.

This willingness to contribute to other projects has put Tyler in a very fortunate position; playing guitar with Band of Horses. Bill Reynolds, long time friend and bassist for Band Horses invited Tyler to visit him and the rest of the band in South Carolina. Tyler quickly hit it off with lead singer Ben Bridwell, who asked him to open for the band on their fall tour and come on board as their new guitar player. Tyler is psyched to be bringing both elements to the upcoming tour. "This is going to be an amazing tour. To have the opportunity to play solo, as well as with such a great band, I really couldn't ask for more," says Ramsey.
