Tyler Nail is a songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist, and performer. Nail often performs a raw one-man show, though he sometimes performs with a variety of band arrangements that push his particular brand of Americana into dark, gritty territory. Regardless of the band size, the consistent focus of a Tyler Nail show is the songs, the lyrics, and the voice.
Nail was born in Winston-Salem, NC. He started his music career as a drummer in various hometown rock bands until finally gravitating toward guitar and leading his own bands. He has independently produced and released several original recording projects (Winter to Winter, Feathers, Under Evergreens, Life Lessons) and a Levon Helm tribute album (When I Go Away), many of which were engineered entirely in his home studio in Rural Hall, NC.
Nail has toured much of the eastern United States with The Tyler Nail Trio, sharing bills with such acts as Dex Romweber, The Hackensaw Boys, Caleb Caudle, Jim Avett, and Underhills Rose. Around the 2019 release of Nail’s double album, Life Lessons, Nail took a hiatus from touring and focused exclusively on writing and recording. At the start of 2021, Nail began reemerging with his well-received, “haunting” single, “Someday.” This release indicated a return to the poetic lyrical beauty that fans of Nail associate his music with, while maintaining some of the contemporary stylings that he picked up during his Life Lessons project.
Nail is currently in the last stages of wrapping up his most recent recording project, which he will be releasing this year. Nail will be returning to the stage and the road, both as a solo acoustic act, and with his newly arranged band (Tyler Nail, Joshua Ling, Quique Rodriguez-Pastor, Michael Kinchen, and Devin Forkel).
