Tyler Jay served in the United States Marine Corps from Jan 2005 - Jan 2009. During his time overseas (Iraq), he was fortunate enough to find a guitar and learn how to play.
Life in the Marines, especially deployed life, can be difficult to imagine. There is far too little music speaking to veterans and truly capturing those feelings. It is out of this deficit Tyler says, "I aim to reach out to those in need of a little entertainment, relate to other Vets, and from time to time provide a little comic relief through music."
Fans have been begging for an album ever since Tyler gained popularity on YouTube 13 years ago with his viral, impromptu video recording of his EAS Song about getting out of The Marine Corps. After plenty of time during the 2020 quarantine, Tyler's first EP is finally about to be delivered.
The Circus is the first single in a series of planned releases off Tyler's forthcoming 5-song EP, recorded at Twelve 3 South Recording in Nashville TN, produced by Donnie Reis. It releases worldwide Nov. 10, 2020 at midnight your time.
