WYLDSKY was founded by front man and guitarist extraordinaire, Tyler Nelson in 2006.
Tyler is a seasoned musician and song writer. While playing guitars (electric and acoustic) for the legendary rock band Great White – performing benefit concerts for the families of the victims who died in The Station fire in Rhode Island – he was contacted by Ivan Gospich, founder of Mandatory Music Group. Ivan offered him a contract to make a CD and Tyler accepted. Tyler then started putting together an amazing ensemble of musicians; the formation of WYLDSKY, named after Tyler’s daughters Wylie & Skylar.
These musicians are truly amazing. Tyler is a guitar virtuoso who seamlessly transitions from any stringed instrument. Many compare his style to Jeff Beck. Tyler also has a very potent and soulful voice, and sings his heart out – even at the rehearsals – which inspires the rest of the band to perform at their full potential every time they get together. To see these guys play live is not to be missed!
WYLDSKY’S debut is a dynamic CD where no two songs sound the same and every song is a great original. Tyler’s journey and experiences throughout his life were captured poetically in his lyrics. Songs like Next World, Dog Daze and Comin’ On are edgy hard rock/metal, while Where You Belong and My Baby are feel-good rock songs everyone can relate to. Moving inspirational rock ballads are also included with Rendezvous and Nightmare and a Dream. Reviewers have compared their sound to Led Zeppelin, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Black Crowes, Soundgarden, Aerosmith, ZZ Top, Van Halen and Pink Floyd.
The debut CD from WYLDSKY offers something for everyone, covering all facets of great rock!
