Sanford Music Festival Artist Spotlight on: Joel Tyler

joel-tyler-copyOriginally from Michigan, Joel Tyler moved to central Florida a few years ago, and for the past year has been playing shows in the area as a solo acoustic artist.

Joel says that; “Music is an internal motivator. It affects me more than a lot of things in life. Music pushes me, humbles me, and moves me. I love being involved in my own art and seeing how is it’s subjected to interpretation.”

His acoustic show is raw, vulnerable and very honest.  He says he is still stretching his abilities and will most likely will be changing and evolving over time.  Joel is influenced by many different types of music and they spill out in the lyrics and inflections of his songs.

Joel is described as an acoustic, indie-pop singer and musician; but, Joel says that the future is a crazy place and he is not particularly set on writing and playing just one style of music.  It’s a safe bet that there will be collaborations and a full band “coming around the mountain when she comes”.

He will be on tour in March and will be playing a lot of new material including songs from the EP.  Playing mostly in small venues that he feels are good places for music to grow and people to connect with the songs and each other.   Be on the lookout for his  soon to be released solo acoustic EP entitled “Arms Are Meant for Holding”.
