Raised in Northern California, Tyler Rich found his love of music gathered around a Christmas tree alongside family singing holiday classics and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Fast forward to graduating college with a degree in Economics, Tyler moved to LA to pursue a different game of numbers – music – exploring various genres with songwriting and bands before taking the leap as a solo artist. His fanbase has grown organically from Sacramento to Nashville where in 2017 he signed a record deal with The Valory Music Co. and publishing agreement with Big Machine Music.
While introducing his amplified sound and infectious energy coast to coast, the 2018 CMT Listen Up and 2019 Pandora Artist has toured with Brett Young, Justin Moore, LANCO and Dustin Lynch, plus shared bills alongside Sam Hunt, Brett Eldredge, Cole Swindell, Dan + Shay and more.
Enlisting Tyler as one of their “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know," Rolling Stone touts him as “the newest member of country music’s radio-minded incoming class, with a homecoming king’s swagger and a valedictorian’s songwriting smarts.” SiriusXM charttoppers GOLD-certified single “The Difference” and “Leave Her Wild” set the tone for his debut album TWO THOUSAND MILES, a reference to the distance between Los Angeles and Nashville as both he and his wife, actress Sabina Gadecki chased their dreams and embraced a bi-coastal relationship before officially settling in Tennessee.
While inspiration has been specific, the collection reflects feelings all people have in common – the needs for acceptance, devotion and places to call their own. Tyler connected virtually, recording the aptly-titled “Feels Like Home,” from a makeshift home studio as musicians added parts from their respective spaces and finding an overwhelming response of 3 million+ views on TikTok with a demo of “Better Than You’re Used To.” His latest single has now amassed over 28M+ global streams to date and reminding others to remember your value. His empathetic spirit extends to animals too with Rich Rescues, an initiative he began while on tour to raise awareness for pet adoption. This September, Tyler will return to the West Coast for his headline TWO THOUSAND MILES TOUR in addition to joining Chris Lane for select dates.
