Hear what people are saying about Tyler and his music:

"...8-bit video game music that conjures some serious princess-rescuing nostalgia...."

~ Michael Spawn, Free Times

"[F]ar more than a 'decent local musician[,]' this guy has an impressively unique sound. Don't take my word for it - go see for yourself... guaranteed to be a real musical treat!!"

~ Eulalee B., Facebook comment

"Pretty good."

~ Elderly Woman after a performance at an open mic night

"Why do you wear a coat and tie when you play?"

~ Elderly Woman's husband

"I think [The Four Unicorns of the Apocalypse is] kind of a cute name for an album.... I can just kind of sort of picture in my mind... four deadly looking unicorns coming down to do battle on the Earth or, I don't know, some kind of sci-fi/fantasy nonsense like that."

~ Frank Moseley, Host of AMRadioi's Classic Alt Rock!!, on Electrock EP: The Four Unicorns of the Apocalypse

"...like the Southern rock equivalent of 30 Rock at its best - totally campy and ostensibly funny, but actually [full] of truth, nostalgia and talent."

~Kathleen Kemp

"[Tyler] managed to fit together just about every classic music cliché in the book, both musically and lyrically, into one song. AND it[']s relatable!"

~Mal Weatherly of Mal and the Malcontents

"...like Yes meets the Donkey Kong soundtrack. One word: Genius."

~Erin W., social worker, mother of two, music lover, on Electrock EP: The Four Unicorns of the Apocalypse
