Calling Eugene home, singer/songwriter, Tyler Fortier has been releasing CD’s since 2006. With two new CD’s already released this year, Fear of the Unknown and And They Rode Like Wildfire Snaking Through The Hills ‘ Neath the Scarlet Sun and another CD, Bang on Time, set to be released this month, Fortier seems to have quite a bit to say. With material ranging from 19th century narrative songs about the old west, to the end of the world to flooded fields.
Thankfully for this artist, the folks at Ninkasi Brewing took a fancy to him just prior to the release of his 4th CD, Love is Fleeting and extended a sponsorship to him, helping shine the spotlight not only on his work but his tours.
Fortier has been compared to Neil Young to Tom Petty as well as Bruce Springsteen for his story telling abilities and vocal presentation. With a busy touring schedule, this singer/songwriter makes time in his demo recording studio to teach private songwriting lessons.
