Raised in Yuba City, a small farming community in Northern California, Tyler Rich found his love of music alongside family singing holiday classics and Creedence Clearwater Revival. At age 8, his cousin introduced him to the sounds of George Strait, Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson. Soon after, his grandparents surprised him with a guitar so he could join the family jams. After graduating college with an Economics degree, Tyler moved to LA to pursue music, exploring various genres with songwriting and bands before taking the leap as a solo artist. His fanbase has grown from iHeart in Sacramento supporting his independent release to signing a record deal with The Valory Music Co. and a publishing agreement with Big Machine Music. While introducing his amplified sound and infectious energy coast to coast, the 2018 CMT Listen Up Artist has performed with country’s top acts including Dustin Lynch, Sam Hunt, Brett Eldredge, Dan + Shay and more. His new single “The Difference” is available now.
