Tyler Stenson is everything that is good about Americana today: a great passionate voice, beautiful lyrics, intense music. He uses the steel guitar just as it’s meant to be used; sparingly but intense when used.
Born in Lander, WY but raised in Oregon, Tyler Stenson is a bold, lyric-first, Portland singer songwriter that draws profound influence from his roots in the humble West. Raised a vocalist by his musical mother, a perfectionist by his father the architect and a scrapper by the pair, Stenson’s unique brand of “Elegant Folk” music is the fitting result of his upbringing — wildly creative but ever wrangled by his meticulous attention to detail and desire to design things differently.
Stenson’s style is so unbelievably strong and intimate. No doubt, Stenson is on his way. Listen to his music. He is definitely one of the best.
