Guitar, keyboard, percussion, vocals--is there anything musical beyond his grasp? The name Tyler Ramsey has become synonymous with awe-inspiring talent, taste, wit, and style.
After his own jazzy funky instrumental trio ran its course in the late '90s, Ramsey became renowned as a sideman and perennial winner of best-local-musician polls around Asheville, North Carolina. Ramsey has contributed his instrumental prowess to numerous bands, including DrugMoney, Robot, Wayne Robbins & The Hellsayers, Hollywood Red, Jr. James & The Late Guitar, and others.
Now, Ramsey is stepping out front. Solo, he crafts intricate, finger-style guitar sounds reminiscent of John Fahey and Leo Kottke, but with a sum effect that is all Ramsey's own. Blues, ragtime, experimental folk--Ramsey is a composer of intricate, ethereal songs of melancholy and rumination. Musically and lyrically, every song on Ramsey's disc is fully realized and exquisitely crafted.
The disc was recorded and mixed by Brian Landrum and mastered by Steven Heller. Cover art is original work by Tyler Ramsey!
