Tyler Dow Bryant is a 21 year old guitar prodigy from Honey Grove, Texas. He is featured, along with Jeff Beck, Carlos Santana and Slash, in the film Rock Prophecies. At 15, Tyler put together the Tyler Bryant Band. The band toured Texas and the surrounding states. At one point, they played shows in Germany and Prague. In 2006, at 15, he was presented with the Robert Johnson Gibson New Generation Award for aspiring young guitar players. In 2007, Eric Clapton invited Tyler to play at Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago.

When Tyler entered high school, he started listening to more rock and roll music, such as The Black Crowes, The Rolling Stones and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. This music started influencing the songs that he was writing and playing. Tyler moved to Nashville at 17 to write songs, and in the process met drummer Caleb Crosby and bass player Calvin Webster. Caleb and Calvin joined Tyler’s band, named Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown, which now also includes guitar player Graham Whitford, the son of Brad Whitford from Aerosmith.

Tyler has toured with or opened shows for Jeff Beck, Aerosmith, Joe Bonamassa, B.B. King, Pat Benatar, Heart, Smash Mouth, Styx, REO Speedwagon and Vince Gill to name a few. Guitarist Vince Gill has said about Tyler: “To be 18 and play like this kid is the rarest of the rare. Hands down a future guitar god.” In 2009, Tyler performed at the Grammy Foundation’s 11th Annual Music Preservaton Event: “Music in Focus” at the historic Wilshire Ebell Theater in Los Angeles.
