Born and raised in Juneau, Alaska, Tyler Preston got his start performing at the infamous Alaskan Hotel & Bar, sneaking in while still underage to sing folk & blues for the rowdy Alaskan fishermen who congregate there in the long, cold winters.
After several years of that, in 2012 Tyler relocated to Madison, Wisconsin where he founded the Tyler Preston Trio, a blues-rock band in the vein of Cream or the Jimi Hendrix Experience. The group released an EP in 2013 and was nominated Best New Artist of 2013 by the Madison Area Music Association, and they spent the next two years performing freque ... ntly at pubs, clubs, and events throughout the upper Midwest.
After two years with the trio, Tyler decided it was time to relocate again, this time to Nashville, Tennessee. In fall of 2014 he arrived in Music City intending to start an indie rock band: the New City Savages. However, the group was to be short-lived. Shortly after releasing their promising debut EP in 2015, which garnered attention from Nashville label Palaver Records, the group broke up, and Tyler decided to call it quits on the Nashville dream and return to Madison.
In Madison Tyler resumed working as a guitar teacher and began developing his acoustic repertoire to seek work as a solo guitar-vocalist on cruise ships. Six months later, he received his first contract and shipped off to Alaska to perform on the Coral Princess in the summer of 2016.
After completing his contract with Princess, Tyler spent the winter in Alaska recording his latest album, Close To The Line, which was released in March of this year. He followed up the release with a tour of New England during the spring and summer, and he is now currently holed up for the winter at his family compound in Canada, working on his guitar-teaching website haveguitarwilltravel.net and seeking a new long-term performance contract for spring/summer 2018.
