Tyler Heath

Tyler Heath is writing really interesting alternative folk songs. He says he’s influenced by NEEDTOBREATHE, Switchfoot, Coldplay, and Mute Math, but honestly I don’t really see any of those bands in this music. I like most of those bands, and I like Tyler Heath, but I’m not making the connections.

The first track on his album “Let It Go” is called “Hours” and it’s really great. It’s incredibly driving, the lyrics are super interesting, and the melody is totally catchy. I can tell that I’m probably going to end up listening to this guy more than most of the stuff I’ve found online lately. “Hours” is probably my favorite track on this album. It’s really great.

“The Beast” is another great track on this album. It’s similarly upbeat and catchy. The theme seems to be a little bit more immediately tangible and understandable, but I wouldn’t say that I like it any more or less for that reason. The guitar riff is really catchy, and I love how this song seems like it’s a little bit uncomfortably fast.

If you get a chance to see Tyler Heath play a show, I’m sure it would be great. These songs seem like they don’t even enjoy being contained in recorded form. They’re just waiting to be played live and hit you at full force. Find Tyler Heath. Encourage him to come to your town. Then gather up all your friends and head over for a powerful modern folk rock show you’ll almost definitely love.
