Tennessee-born guitarist, songwriter and producer William Tyler has reinvented the sound of country music.
Having established his reputation as a versatile and supremely inventive guitar ace working with legends including Lambchop, Silver Jews and Bonnie Prince Billy, the Nashville native's solo efforts focus on instrumental, often experimental pieces, paying homage to the musical traditions of the American South with his deft finger work and talent for evoking the sun-dappled, optimistic melodies of “rural new age” Americana.
William Tyler's performance at MONA will showcase his immense talent and showmanship with dextrous playing and a mix of loop pedals, electric and acoustic guitar.
