Ramsey’s captivating songs are intricate soundscapes rooted in razor-sharp instrumentation and storytelling. Pop Matters proclaimed, “Lushly intricate in the vein of Neil Young, Jackson Browne & Red House Painters, the songs effortlessly and beautifully glide by on the strength of Ramsey’s melodic guitar playing and lilting singing voice.” NPR Music stated, “Heartwarming, delicate and comforting, Tyler Ramsey’s music showcases a thoughtful approach to instrumentalism and lyricism,” and American Songwriter affirmed, “Ramsey’s songs have mantric, meditative, and dreamlike qualities.”
An artist of enormous ability, depth and observation, Tyler Ramsey’s upcoming Fantasy Records debut is sure to be one of 2019’s most anticipated and admired albums.
