The Pink Flamingo Era

Tyler Stiller is a mid-west guitar driven and folk inspired lyricist with a western American heart. He has been an active writer and performer since 2006 and has grown into an accomplished musician who has lead and been part of many successful musical groups throughout the past decade and a half.  

Stiller grew up surrounded by music. Whether it was sitting in on his cousins grunge rock rehearsals in the early 90's or watching his grandfather sift through the seasons picking at his pedal steel guitar, Stiller was encircled by music of all generations. 

With early introduction to the professional studio world at the age of thirteen, Stiller then knew he would never get enough of the rush he achieved from putting a song to a microphone and watching it blossom. 

This eventually lead to a five-piece mid-west touring folk-rock group that gave Stiller his first real authentic road musician experience that engraved hard work and chops into his life forever, but as many artistic groups have a timeline, creative differences settled in with the group which lead to the end of the band. 

Stiller took this as a fresh start and sat low for a few years creating a new sound that he knew he could stand behind and push with force again. 

Curtain call! This opened the idea of Pink Flamingo. Stiller  was sitting at the dinner table and noticed a flamingo water color painting above the table and that was the day he started writing again. 

Ten songs were written for this era of music in Stiller's career. Five were released in 2018 which included the flashy single "Stella" and the following five are on the follow up EP Pink Flamingo: Volume Two released spring of 2021 featuring the guitar driven single "Diamonds & Peach Skylines" and the soft rock riff driven "Behind Our Fathers" featuring former bandmate Anna Blanton with extraordinary orchestration. 

Stiller is also hard in the works with the rehearsal and writing of his debut LP Desert Bloom Flower Queen which is set to be tracked late 2021.

"It's a new era for me. Musically and as a human being. I can't wait to see where this one leads me." -Stiller

PINK FLAMINGO VOLUME TWO REALEASE 

PFV2 is probably the most conceptual group of songs I’ve written and recorded. A little background on the EP. For me, these songs are like opening a time capsule from where I was when I wrote and recorded them. They were written over a two week span along with the songs from PFV1 and, for the most part, all of them were tracked in 2017 along with the songs on PFV1. Originally I was going to release them all together but it didn’t make sense with where I was in my life at that point, and I really don’t think the songs for this EP would have been what they are today if I would have pushed through with them then. 

With my friend, mate and the always outstanding Cory Pollard at House Productions on board with engineering and co-producing this EP I am and will be forever grateful. He always knows where my mind’s at when we start tracking and has such an ability for pulling on the right strings in my creative headspace to translate it to something attainable. Not to mention he’s a master of his craft. 

I also consider myself EXTREMELY fortunate to have some of the Louisville and southern Indiana area’s finest musicians on these songs. Each of them are extraordinary in their own sphere of talent and they bring this EP to a level I couldn’t have done without them! Thanks Jake Badger, Scott Edelen, Anna Blanton, Mike Hood, Juliana Rodriguez, Mauriece Hamilton, Ryan Nottingham, and Mike Smith for your amazing talent! And thanks Mickie Winters for the outstanding photography! 

A lot of time has passed since these songs were written and I’ve written a boat load of new material in that span of time but I wouldn’t change any of the process I went through to get these songs to you all!

Desperados Under the Moon release 

This song is special to me in a way that it always lifts me up and I can put it to any day I’m having and feel better after playing it. It’s about struggle, hope, grit, open mindedness, and finding strength in people, memories, and the ever changing seasons of life.

"Behind Our Fathers" drops today, the second single from PFV2 

It’s a strange time to be releasing and promoting music but music has been one of the few things that has set my mind at ease through this troubled time. 

“Behind Our Fathers” in short is a song about growing up and all that it comes with. It’s about growing up into a world that our elders have molded and realizing that we actually have the ability to change it. We can build off of their vision of the world and spin the perspective to fill in the gaps. Change is inevitable. It’s our hands that directs the sail where we want the wind to take us.

Tyler Stiller

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. 

While the follow up EP Pink Flamingo: Volume Two dropped spring of 2021, Stiller isn't slowing down and also hard at work with the writing and rehearsal process of his debut LP Desert Bloom Flower Queen which is anticipated to begin tracking in the late of 2021.

"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
