Snakefarm Records has confirmed Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown as the first act to join the label following a freshly-inked worldwide deal. Housed within the global infrastructure of Spinefarm Records (a UMG label), the Snakefarm brand will provide a supportive home for international artists, both established and new, from the increasingly buoyant roots rock world - music based on authenticity and emotion, under-pinned by a core set of values and beliefs.
In this respect, Nashville-based Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown - fresh from guesting with Guns N' Roses - stand as a flagship representation. Comprised of Caleb Crosby on drums, Graham Whitford on guitar, Noah Denney on bass and backing vocals, and Texas-born Tyler on guitar and vocals, the quartet released six-track EP The Wayside in 2015, produced by Grammy winner Vance Powell and released via Spinefarm in the UK and Europe.
Due to be released on Nov. 3, the new self-titled TBSD album (and debut Snakefarm release) was crafted in Nashville by the band and mixed by producer/engineer/multi-instrumentalist John Fields (Soul Asylum, Paul Westerberg), featuring a brand new set of infectious and varied songs, some of which - including epic rocker "Aftershock" - have become staples of the live set.
In 2016, TBSD joined friends and Nashville neighbors The Cadillac Three for a tour of the UK, sharing the stage with the headliners on a nightly basis - the start of an on-the-road, 'round-the-world adventure that has seen them guesting with some of rock's foremost legends (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Deep Purple, G n' R), appearing at the Download and Ramblin' Man festivals in the UK, and generally becoming as comfortable projecting their passion into stadiums as rockin' out in theaters and clubs...
The band is set to continue through 2017-2018, with headline shows and festivals already announced, and being added to, on both sides of the Atlantic. However, it's the new Snakefarm Records release that's first on the agenda.
"We're beyond excited to be teaming up with Snakefarm to release our new self-titled album. We've become close with their team, and have learned that their passion for real music is not rivalled by many. That's something we both share. Together, we're gonna take our brand of rock 'n' roll to as many people as we possibly can." says Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown. For more visit, tylerbryantandtheshakedown.com
