Small town Floyd county, IN kid, Tyler Stiller made his name in New Albany, IN starting out as a guitar instructor for the local music store. Stiller's blues and rock roots sound have been compared to Gary Clark Jr., John Mayer, and hints of The Black Keys.
Stiller's initial professional performing career started with a five piece folk-rock group Field of Kings. The group was a well oiled machine that played the mid-west area for the better of four years that joined the bills with many accomplished artists such as Moon Taxi, Red Wanting Blue (@ Bogarts Cincinnati), Secondhand Serenade , and Ten Years. However, as many bands demise stems from artistic differences, Field of Kings met an equal ending.
Stiller took this extended time to reconnect and establish a new sound that he could stand behind and push with force again. This brought him to the guitar driven blues-rock style that is demonstrated through his impressive debut solo EP Pink Flamingo: Volume One with single "Stella" that shines shades of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours.
Pink Flamingo: Volume Two brought even more experimental creation to Stiller's discography with "Global Rhythm" kicking off the second instalment of this venture with it's psychedelic and groovy tones. The elegant string arrangements by the spectacular Anna Blanton on "Behind Our Fathers" levels the playing field and demonstrates the true diversity of what Pink Flamingo could sonically touch.
The latest adventure Stiller is exploring has been tracking his upcoming record to be titled Tyler Stiller and the Hired Guns. This group of songs was recorded live because Stiller wanted to get the energy of the band and has always been something he has wanted to do. "I wanted to make a definitive point in including the band in the album title. These songs wouldn't be what they are without them.
"Writing songs and playing them is just what I do, and if it means others can sing along and enjoy it too.. I couldn't ask for more than that." -Stiller
