Nashville recording artist and Colorado singer songwriter Tyller Gummersall began his career at the early age of eight performing Hank William’s Hey Good Lookin’ at the County Fair Talent contest.
That same year, Ty took the advice of a successful local performer and began taking lessons from his music mentor and two time national flat pick champ Gary Cook.
His eighth year was a big one in terms of getting his first horse, his first guitar, and winning his first talent contest! He persisted working at his future career and at fourteen he began voice lessons with respected Los Angleles voice coach Raven Kane Campbell.
His good fortune continued when he was able to record “Beer and a Rose” (Ty’s second album) with his Nashville Dream Band, a unit composed of members from Ryan Adams and John Prine’s bands (two of Ty’s musical hero’s) at the special Welcome to 1979 analog Nashville studio.
Tyller’s third studio album was produced by Grammy award winner Lloyd Maines. “Long Ride Home” was very well received, enjoying radio play across the country, tens of thousands of streams and positive reviews.
These days he splits his time between Nashville, Texas, and Colorado.

“Tyller Gummersall is well beyond his years when it comes to liking, and playing music. Maybe it’s from being immersed in his parent’s record collection. Maybe it’s from being a student of the great Gary Cook. Whatever it is, Tyller’s influences
are heard within his music. He’s a great singer, and a great songwriter. Tyler Gummersall’s future will be within the realm Americana Music.” – Bryant Liggett KDUR Radio
“Tyller Gummersall has a raw passion in his voice that draws you into his songs” -Raven Kane
“Gummersall, who’s music falls somewhere between vintage country and Americana fare.
