Tyler Hilton
Tyler Hilton was singing and playing in coffee houses as a 15 year old, when a
chance encounter with Los Angeles radio personalities Mark and Brian from
KLOS led to multiple appearances on their radio show, live concert dates with
the duo, and national exposure. He released his first album independently shortly
thereafter, which led to major label interest and eventually signing to Maverick/
Warner Records where he released "The Tracks of Tyler Hilton" which garnered
two singles on the Billboard Top 40 charts. While on tour promoting the album,
Tyler was cast as his child hood hero Elvis Presley in "Walk the Line" where he
worked with T-Bone Burnett on the soundtrack, and for which he received a
gold record.
An opportunity to sing on TV's "One Tree Hill,” a notorious breeding ground for
new musical talent, led to a series long run, several appearances on MTV's
"TRL" with the cast, and a national tour with Gavin DeGraw and Michelle
Branch who also sang on the show. Taylor Swift admitted to being a fan, and
asked Tyler to star in her music video "Tear Drops on My Guitar" which became
a huge crossover hit. The two appeared together live several times and later
Tyler appeared via interactive video on her stadium tour. The independent
comedy "Charlie Bartlett" followed with Robert Downey Jr. and Anton Yelchin and
where Tyler met his wife, Megan Park, who was also in the film.
Tyler moved to Nashville where he began exploring his family's country roots
and made several records with notable producers including Dan Huff, Nathan
Chapman, Matt Serletic, and John Alagia. Sadly, non of these records saw the
light of day, as staff and roster upheaval plagued Warner Brother Records, and
eventually led to Tyler's departure from the label. One of these unreleased
songs made their way to Joe Cocker, who recorded it on his final album. Tyler
then started his own label, Hooptie Tune Records, and released "Forget the
Storm" the following year. It became the first record of Tyler's to gain
international success and led to several European tours and a new fervent fan
base. His follow up, the mellow folky country album “Indian Summer,” was
recorded live in studio with a bluegrass band including his uncle, Tommy Hilton,
on guitar.
While recording, Tyler landed a role in Halle Berry's "Extant" on CBS and
continued to film the show over the course of its two season run, touring and
filming the holiday movie “Christmas on the Bayou” with Randy Travis, Ed Asner,
and “One Tree Hill” alum, Hilarie Burton, for which he also recorded the single
“One Foot in the Bayou”. Following the end of “Extant,” Tyler worked on a pilot
for the ABC sitcom, "The Fluffy Shop" alongside Gabriel Iglesias. Tyler is
currently based in Los Angeles, where he’s working on a new album, due out in
late 2018.
