Tyler McCumber is a true Texan of a red dirt mold. He is not just another young gun on the Texas Music roads and airwaves, but a veteran of music and life. He has played music his entire life, but has spent most of his years in the livestock industry as a stock buyer and horseshoe craftsman. He not only knows Texas, but also has lived it, in its good times and bad. He's even played gigs with a broken hand after being kicked by a horse!

Mike McClure calls Tyler McCumber, “One of the realist people I have ever met with a real voice of distinction." Those who know Tyler agree. He is a man who has lived the songs he sings, and that is obvious in his sincere vocal delivery.

Tyler McCumber is a rare talent who brings the excitement of newness to his music, while capturing the essence of experience and wisdom from years of hard work. His brand of red dirt and Americana country-rock is fresh and delightful.

Tyler McCumber lives in the small town of George West, Texas, and, when he's not on tour with his band playing gigs all over Texas, he can be found roaming the back roads in his truck.
