Biography

Tyler Ramsey’s hometown of Asheville, North Carolina features a music scene where a tight-knit community of players always share the stage, and no one is in just one band. Amid all the recording studios, listening rooms and PBR-fueled bars of Asheville, Tyler stands out as a formidable talent on guitar, piano, bass, percussion, and vocals.
Ramsey is best known for his guitar work. Crafting delicate, finger-style guitar picking reminiscent of John Fahey and Leo Kottke, but with a sum effect that is all his own. Indie folk, Country Blues, Finger style guitar – Ramsey is a composer of intricate, ethereal songs of melancholy and rumination. Tyler has spent his life perfecting and honing his sound. It’s been a journey that has taken him through many different genres of music, numerous and varied bands, and all around the world. While living in the mountains of Western North Carolina he immersed himself in the varied folk styles of the area. Inspired by the traveling country blues musicians that used to pass through the mountains, Tyler spent his time experimenting with his piano and guitar playing while continuously honing his craft as a songwriter and instrumentalist. He is always willing to sit in with friends or jump on board a promising project, no matter what the musical style. He’s toured the country with many projects, but these days, Ramsey is making his own material top priority. “My solo work has always been my focus,” he admits. “Even during those times I spent contributing to other bands.”
