about

As a part of the Global Music Fest Songwriting Contest, I won a prize of studio time from festival sponsor, Bob Gabelhouse @ Big Audio Studios, for my song 'Imagine Life'. www.bigaudioproductions.com

I was on tour in October through the Okanagan and stopped in for two days to hang with Bob and record some tracks live off the floor. All I had was my Godin guitar, which doesn't have an acoustic sound, so we just plugged it in and set up a mic and recorded some original tunes!

I had limited expectations for these sessions, but was pleasantly surprised by the high quality of services and skill from Bob, and the heartfelt performances I was churning out. I really felt like I poured a little of my heart out into these recordings.

There are no overdubs or autotuning. So there is a raw and live feel to these performances. I like that. I've been really working to let go of my perfectionism and just love myself knowing I don't sing perfectly in tune all the time or play my guitar immaculately. It's me. Raw. Unfiltered.

Big Love. Big Audio.

Big Acoustic Love.

Brent Tyler balances the soft subtlety of honest and introspective folk music with catchy and powerful pop hooks and melodies born of his childhood influences and contemporary crushes. ... more

Track Name: Listen
Caught in between
The fence and the green
I'm on the brink of knowing where I'll go

It's hard to be
I get caught up in me
I'm blind to see the spirit of those I know

But if love can guide my way
I will pay more attention to the words you say
With all the ways that I go wrong
At least I'll have this song

Come sit right down
It's safe no one's around
I want to hear what you have to say

What do I fear?
It's just you sitting here
I want to open up my heart today

But if love can guide my way
I will pay more attention to the words you say
With all the ways that I go wrong
At least I'll have this song
Track Name: Hello Big Dipper
For the love I take this heavy ride
Across the border to the other side
To my home this home away from home

Every time I sit and wonder why
My heart surrounded by this river valley wide
And I know that I just have to go

Hello Big Dipper
Let me taste your moonshine
Sip on these stars awhile
Let me drink up this wine
Hello Big Dipper
I see you've spilled the light
Lifting smoke up high into the night
Hello Big Dipper
I see you pour out on this stage
Reflected in one million tiny lights
Across my face

Taste the desert clay dry in the air
Feel the heat rush through the window through your hair
Now I know just what I'm living for

Awakened soldiers huddled in the night
Feel the yearning for another shining light
Can't be told no oh babe you're just going to have to go

Hello Big Dipper
Let me taste your moonshine
Sip on these stars awhile
Let me drink up this wine
Hello Big Dipper
I see you've spilled the light
Lifting smoke up high into the night
Hello Big Dipper
I see you pour out on this stage
Reflected in one million tiny lights
Across my face
Track Name: Home To My Heart
I'm suffocating losing ground behind these walls
And I'm leaving behind these memories I want them all
You fell in love with this man full of life and love
As I'm trying to find my way back home to my heart
Home to my heart

Oh when I was younger I'd give advice I knew it all
And now I don't know nothing about this life or you at all
You will be patient with me as I trip and fall
As I'm trying to find my way back home to my heart
Home to my heart

You will be waiting for me full of life and love
As I'm trying to find my way back home to my heart
As you're trying to find your way back home to your heart
As I'm trying to find my way back home to my heart
Track Name: Not Satisfied
I’ve got it easy I’ve got everything
I’m living life up on the top floor like a king
Kneel down and kiss my ring
You’re full of jealousy and hateful spite
You are so wrong and baby damn I know I’m right
But there’s no need for a fight

I have it all yet I’m not satisfied
I have it all yet I’m not satisfied

I can’t afford to smoke the day away
But I have the time to smell the flowers on my way
Even on cloudy days
My credit purchases expensive things
But I could be happy just to stand for you and sing

I have it all yet I’m not satisfied
I have it all yet I’m not satisfied
Track Name: Forever You & Me
Let's do something crazy darling
More than we've ever dreamed
Walking off something so solid
A trip that will echo a scream

Don't know if it will hold
I don't know what we'll see
Let's do something crazy baby
How about forever you and me?

Let's do something crazy darling
Run away from this town
Just get in my car and start driving
To Mexico all the way down

Don't know if it will hold
I don't know what we'll see
Let's do something crazy baby
How about forever you and me?

Let's do something crazy baby
Leave all our troubles behind
Forget that our conscience is calling
And kiss me under moonlight

Don't know if it will hold
I don't know what we'll see
How about forever, forever you and me?
Track Name: Imagine LIfe
This water gives another life today
Then washes over homes and takes it away
Picking up the pieces we find a way
For breathing, loving, feeling

This girl is separated from her family
Crossing borders just to set her free
Suffering from this lack of sanity
Breathing, loving, feeling

Imagine Life
Imagine Hope
Imagine Love

Generations of inequality
The rich get richer while the poor they don't sleep
But finding ways to build their dignity
Breathing, loving, feeling

Rising up above the burning flames
Out from the ashes the Phoenix will awake
Taking flight over a brand new day
Breathing, loving, feeling

Imagine Life
Imagine Hope
Imagine Love
