about

After spending the first 6 months of 2014 in a recording studio working on his latest full band studio album, Brent Tyler took a few days to step inside Sympul Studios in Calgary with Derek Pulliam and record a few songs acoustically. The main guitar and vocal take is live off the floor with harmonies and a suitcase brush track added as overdubs.

This release is focused on some unreleased folkier tunes that suit the solo acoustic vibe. A collection of songs written over the last 9 months that have sat in the BT vault with no love, this was a perfect opportunity to release an EP for the summer to satisfy the fans that like their BT solo acoustic;)

Hard copies of this CD will be made available asap, but for now, pick up This Breath via digital download for $5-$1,000,000. Pay what you can:)

about

Brent Tyler Calgary, Alberta

Big Acoustic Love.

This is the best description of Brent Tyler’s music and live performance. An aggressive acoustic style combined with lungs befit of his seven foot stature. 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: This Breath
I want everything I want it all
I want it to figure out how to get before I fall
It's a slippery slope I'm holding on by a thread
If I don't make it happen I know I'll surely be dead
Maybe this is enough maybe I've got it all wrong
Maybe the pit of disappointment keeps me moving along
I'll work harder this year than I did with the last
Find the worth in every moment uncompared to the past

When I find myself alone caught up in the fray
I remind myself there only is today
All the others have passed me by
Only in pictures they will lie
The freedom of this breath is where I try
The freedom of this breath is where I try

I'll drop a few pounds live leaner each day
Let my heart grow fat with the love that I've shared on the way
I'm going to eat better food drink only water tonight
Prove to myself I can live up to these words that I write
Move my body around build strength in my bones
Less abuse of this vessel this sinking ship that I own
Push comfort aside curve learning and grow
This laziness burns me with lessons that I already know

When I find myself alone caught up in the fray
I remind myself there only is today
All the others have passed me by
Only in pictures they will lie
The freedom of this breath is where I try
The freedom of this breath is where I try
The freedom of this breath is where I try..

Track Name: Blue Grey Eyes
My blue grey eyes and what they see
Will shed some light on you and me
Opening up to a falling time
Feeling the beat of a lover's rhyme
Scared to the bone that I'm feeling fine
Open open my life

My blue grey eyes and what they know
Leave only plains on this plateau
Opening up to a learning time
Feeling the beat of a poet's rhyme
Scared to the bone that I'm feeling fine
Open open my life

Open

My blue grey eyes and what they seek
A better life for you and for me
Opening up to a growing time
Feeling the beat of an adult's rhyme
I'm scared to the bone that I will be fine
Open open my life

Track Name: September Long
Keep your eyes on the road
Place your hand on my leg I am getting cold
Steal a kiss upon my neck
Growing heat in the heart as we fill our heads
With the sound of a thousand voices
Is it right or is it wrong?
Feel the phrase skip a beat in the Ho Hey song
Settle in for the night turn the flashlight on
As the over warms with love

Hey Ho Hey

Fill me up I'll pay inside
Drive the car to the hotel and give me time
To decide if this feels good
Feel the coffee rushing through my blood
With anticipation of all we could
Lose a little sleep tonight
As the summer exhales to breathe in new light
Fall into your own decided wrong and right
As the oven warms with love

Hey Ho Hey

Growing heat in the heart as we fill our heads
With the sound of a thousand voices
As the oven warms with love

Music & Lyrics Written by Brent Tyler © September 2014
Track Name: The Sun
The sun will shine
When both of us die
But will you see all the beauty in this life

The call for love might feel inconvenient to your troubled mind
Tripping up your best intentions to reserve yourself until you find
The perfect match to your attachment dating back to when your heart was blind
Everyone deserves to feel a little sunshine
Everyone deserves a little sunshine

We're caught up in our bold predictions
And stressing aout about what we're missing now
I'm so tired from the bag of bricks
I wish I could put it down
Oh but then out comes the summer sun
And the beginning of your skin is turning brown
And I feel in heat

The call for love might feel inconvenient to your troubled mind
Tripping up your best intentions to reserve yourself until you find
The perfect match to your attachment dating back to when your heart was blind
Everyone deserves to feel a little sunshine
Everyone deserves a little sunshine

Oh the sun will shine
When both of us die
But will you see all the beauty in this life
