Raised in Portsmouth, VA, vocally gifted teen heartthrob, Tyler Layne, got his start in the entertainment business at the tender age of four when he joined his church's choir. He was instantly featured in his own solos by the time he was five, only 8 months after his introduction to music.
From this early success, it did not take long for Tyler to excel at an adult level. By the time he was ten, he was already auditioning for lead roles in TV and motion picture features. After a performance one day at an event in his home town, Tyler was approached by local Radio Disney top executives and ending up performing for them, leading them to sign him to the much touted group RD7. Tyler was told he beat out of hundreds of other talented hopefuls to become a featured member of the group and was given the opportunity to open for such Disney standouts as Raven Symone, The Cheetah Girls, The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus and America's Original Idol, Kelly Clarkson.
In addition to being a talented vocalist, Tyler has also spent years honing his skills as a composer and a musician, while he is accomplished at both the guitar and piano. he is also a skilled lyricist, with one of his proudest professional achievements being the writing and performing of the song "Where I Wanna Be" with the globally known Pop Rock Group, Everlife.
Tyler's refreshing style and sound was influenced by a wide range of artists, from the endearing charm and showmanship of Justin Timberlake, to the strong morals of Nick Jonas. From songs that touch on the aspects of a teen's life to melodic easy feeling vibes that families can sing together, Tyler seems to strike a cord that builds emotion in all of us.
Spring of 2013, Tyler began working in studio with the production/writing team of GoodWill &MGI along with Artist Developer/writer, Rich Fayden, to bring a classic pop tune to life with the title track, "Boom Boom". The team is responsible for 16 major label placements just in 2013 alone, with credits on Justin Bieber, 50 Cent, Sean Kingston, Akon, Inna, Radical Something, Super Junior, and EXO recently holding the #1 spot on the world pop charts with the smash single, "Heart Attack", by Asian pop group EXO.
In addition to his busy music career, Tyler devotes his time to the charity, Guitars for Vets, VA, which provides guitars and music lessons for returning war veterans afflicted with PTSD. It is one of his proudest achievements, knowing that it helps bring comfort while sharing his love for music with some of America's bravest Heroes.
With the pending release of his newest single, "She's That Girl" and current multi-city touring schedule, including being a featured artists on multiple tours, Artist in Music Award Best Teen Pop Artist nominee, becoming a Peace Tea, Sodiem Clothing, Dream Flayht Clothing and Giannini sponsored artist, 2014 is promising to be a big year for the talented teen sensation.
