Ode To The Forgotten: Tyler Stenson – “Middle Daughter”

Tyler Stenson

“Middle Daughter”

Tyler Stenson is tremendous.  His new song is one of those beautiful songs that Stenson is so good at.  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 is one of my heroes.  He just covers so many types of music, and he does them so perfectly.  “Middle Daughter” is such a beautiful tribute to that family member that is often forgot: the middle kid.  Here are the lyrics:

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 is back, and he is the best.  I love him.
