Tyler John Hartman is a bit of a conundrum. Now operating out of the Willamette Valley of Oregon, Tyler's formative years took place in North Dakota, where he spent his days staring at wheat fields and listening to equal parts NOFX, Hot Water Music, and John Prine. This range of influence has always caused Tyler's music to exist in a space that is not quite punk and not quite folk.
Prior to an extended hiatus from recording and performing, Tyler's previous musical endeavor (Fighting at a College Level) shared stages across with country with acts such as Against Me!, The Ataris, MGMT, and The Gaslight Anthem. Now, with a much slower pace of life, and inspiration from the beauty and magnificence of the Oregon countryside around him, Tyler has returned with his first new music in a decade.
Prolific in his return, Tyler released three full-length albums in 2021! 2022 brought us his first cover song album, "Dad Camp Covers: Volume 1," the album "New Gravity," and the newest release of spooky tunes, "Monster Eyes!"
