Tyler Ramsey – The Force of Solitude

This week on No Simple Road we are stoked to have Tyler Ramsey as our guest on the show!

At the core of any great singer-songwriter lies this inherent trait of stage presence, one where an entire room, no matter the size, is pulled in by this lyrical tractor beam — all eyes, emotions and energies aimed in one direction at a single voice.

For Tyler Ramsey, it’s being able to honestly connect with the listener, whether it be a packed room amid a live show or just someone throwing on his melodies in their own time and space.

“Writing is simply a release for me,” Ramsey said. “It’s a way for me to process my own path through this life. Some of the time I get it right — my aim is always honesty in writing.”

Albeit a genuinely humble soul, don’t let Ramsey’s words fool you. When it comes to the modern-day singer-songwriter, Ramsey remains a bastion of musical talent and lyrical aptitude — a melodic voice-of-reason and safe haven amid a 21st century world seemingly gone mad. The former lead guitarist of Band of Horses, Ramsey has also released four acclaimed solo albums, including “For The Morning” in 2019.

We talk with Tyler about:

– Building a life in the woods including vuilding a cabin and recording studio.

-Craving solitude and using it as fuel for creativity.

-The Asheville music scene.

– Meeting Circles Around The SUn and Neal Casal in a guitar shop.

-How lyrics are a tool for sorting through moments in time.

– His new album New Lost Ages

and a ton more.
