FREE MP3: "Homelessly in Love"

Tyler Gahn BIO

Tyler was born on September 23, 1986 in Seattle Washington. Gold Bar, a small town with a population of approximately 2,000 people was where he grew up for 18 years. Music wasn't a part of his life until he was 20 years old where he bought his first guitar for a $100, learning Glen Hansard songs like, Falling Slowly and All the Way Down. Playing open mic’s and coffee shops around Seattle was where he discovered the art of performing to an audience, which took some time to get used to. Writing songs for a few years, he was ready to start recording his first E.P. "Here I Go" and in turn inspired him to take music more seriously. Selling his house and everything he owned while quitting his job to pursue his musical career was a big decision, but was definitely the right choice, so far. Tyler downsized to a trailer and parked it on the property where he recorded his new album "Ello V Easy" and will be released this 2015.


A big shout-out to all the people that helped make this thing possible: Guitarist Kevin Stiles – or how I like to refer to him as, Kevin Oh-So-Stylish – with his natural ability to put the "cool" into music with every lick.. and riff, making all the girls go crazy. Thank you for being the genuine guy that you are and for putting so much time and thought into everything you do. If you didn't already know who was singing those beautiful angelic female vocals on track ten, that would be the one and only Kate Lynn Holt. She's not only a singer-songwriter, but also an amazing chalk artist, and out-of-control dog lover. Kate, your talents make this world a better place, so do us all a favor and never stop doing what you do. Aaron Fishburn can slap the shit out of a standup bass. With his slicked back hair and intense stare off to somewhere magical, Aaron infuses soul into every song he plays on, and spends his free time just chillin’. Pimpin’ ain’t easy, but for Aaron, it is. When I heard Daniel Butman play violin for the first time, I knew I had to have him on this record. The great part about working with Daniel is he's professional, comes prepared, and the way he writes and plays makes you wish the song was fifteen minutes longer so you could hear more of that silky smooth violin. Keep rockin’, Mr. Butman! Photographer Ben Blood could make a wind-up camera look good, and when we hit the road to Red Top Lookout, all I could think about was “I can't wait to do my Blue Steel!” Thankfully, Blue Steel never happened – but smoke bombs in 30-degree weather did! We froze our buns off that day, but you and your skills made it all worth it! Trumpeter Chad McCullough sets the mood with his jazzy flare – a true composer to his core. It's always nice to have such an accomplished musician lay down tracks that feel so timeless. Chad, thanks for coming out and making it happen. Julia Manchik takes design to a whole other level of awesomeness, and when she came on board to help put together the look and feel of this project, let me tell you, a huge relief was lifted! Julia's a keyboard tappin’, camera button clickin, tall as the Eiffel Tower shopping in a thrift store looking for the next big thing kinda girl - and that's all before noon. Music-mastering engineer Ed Brooks is not only one of the nicest guys in Seattle, but also has this attention to detail that is beyond what even a dog can hear. Ed's been killin’ it since the 80's. And last but not least, behind door number three, thee elusive Dylan Fant: producer, engineer, musician, and most importantly – friend. Who knew such big sound could come from such a condemned house. Dylan, you never cease to amaze me. Between juicing and eating Taco Bell after workouts, you really made these songs come alive in such a big way, and for that, I'm never leaving. Si. Space. Fly.


Writing this album took some time, dedicating at least 1-2 hours a day till it was finished. Each song varied on how long it took to get done, I mean I still have songs I’ve been working on for years. Maybe they were never meant to be completed, but I still can’t stop from going back to them. I’ve always felt like all the music in the world has always been there, already been written and just waiting for us to find them. Telling stories is what humans are all about, thinking back on the good times, or the hard. Through music is how I decided to express my history, remembering moments that mean the most, people I care about and love in between. I hope my story telling can bring value to whoever out there stumbles across my melody, it would make this journey of mine worth walking.
