Producer Ty Acord was born in Washington State, growing up in the Tacoma region before leaving for Los Angeles to pursue music production. While actively involved in cultivating his own sound, Acord played keyboards and turntables for post-hardcore metal band Issues, touring with the heavy act in between studio sessions for his much different solo music. First working under the moniker Scout, Acord crafted a style heavy on bass and drawing from elements as far-ranging as hip-hop, old-school funk, and sample-based R&B. He worked on several remixes, including work for Zedd and Jack Garratt, before eventually changing his name to Lophiile in 2016 and switching his style to a slightly more streamlined formula that drew on his far-reaching influences as well as his jazz training earlier in life. He released several singles while working toward a debut release under the new banner, including the breezy "Preach." ~ Fred Thomas
