Hi,I'm J P Tyler ,and I hope you enjoy my songs!
Ive been playing guitar since 1967.
I grew up in Tampa Florida, Graduated Hillsborough High School in 1973.
Joined my first band,The Matris Bros Band in 1976.Then realized I had to tighten up my playing.
I joined Shotgun in 1978,and played with them for 8 months,then in 79 my drummer and I formed Back Stage Smoke We were playing the North Nebraska Strip in Tampa (where the Southern Rock Clubs were) and were pretty successful.
In 2000 I started recording original music, and My Album was released in the summer of 2003.
I added some tracks to it,and re titled it Muscle Guitar
The Album was released on March 8,2011.
My new band Top Dead Center is recording 8 new original songs @ The Ozark Mountain Sound Shack
The new album will be released in later this year.
I studied Classical music at USF,But I love Southern Rock & Blues
Right now I'm Using a Mackie 1604 VLZ Pro (+4 balance system), recorded on ADAT XT-20 (tape version) Lexicon reverb, still using the good ole 3630 compressor.
The sound is great!
