*This is part of the “World’s Loudest Month” segment where we branch out and focus on bands that fans can see at the year’s biggest music festivals during the month of May 2018! This week, we introduce Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, a blues-rock quartet from “Music City” Nashville, TN who will be seeing a lot of stage time this Summer at Rock on the Range, Rockville, and more!*
I’m a firm believer that no matter your music preference, whether it be metal, rap, pop, or techno, everyone loves the blues in some form or another. It’s also my belief that this, paired with the know-how and musical ability to create incredible music compositions, has played a major role in the rising success of Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown. The band is the epitome of soulful, genuine songs of rhythmic blues-infused rock and roll and have proven themselves so much as to be privileged enough to share the stage with music giants like ZZ Top, Eric Clapton, AC/DC, and Guns N’ Roses.
The band is made up of Tyler Bryant (vocals, guitar), Caleb Crosby (drums), Noah Denny (bass, backing vocals), and Graham Whitford (guitar). The release of their self-titled sophomore album in November of 2017 really added quality songs to the band’s catalog and really showcased the band’s diversity from the album’s heavy hitters like “Heartland” and “Backfire” to the toned-down likes of “Ramblin’ Bones” and “Into the Black”. Simply put, if you enjoy quality bluesy rock and roll (or just good music in general) these guys do it well.
Fans can catch Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown at Rock on the Range, Fort Rock, and Rockville as well as several non-festival dates listed on the band’s website HERE where tickets for said shows can be purchased. I’m definitely looking forward to being in the Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown crowd this May when they take the stage at Rock on the Range, where Metal Nexus will be bringing some great coverage!
