Tyler Massey Trio is a dynamic new group founded on the evocative songs that American-born guitarist/songwriter Tyler Massey wrote for his "American Nightmare EP", which he co-produced with bassist Alex Knight. Tyler and Alex started playing live shows, and, after the addition of remarkable percussionist Eric Hej, the trio was complete. Their spontaneous style and natural energy was apparent from the first time they played at their spiritual home, The West Malvern Social Club, and was solidified during their first "proper" gig together at the storied Red Lion Folk Club in King's Heath. Tyler's evocative, often brazen 21st century folk songs feature throughout their set, alongside a couple of surprising covers.
