about

Written after awaking from a dream about spending time with the White family @ Hidden Springs retreat, my family, & my family of friends I rely on daily for love and support. Designed as a simple singalong for the holidays. I envision people singing this song together in harmony on the La La La's and remembering that the family you're born into and the one you create is the most important form of community. Love, honour, and cherish your family!

"The sentiments resonate with the idea of someone who is letting themselves be cozied in the warmth of cherished memories. Ahhh… Folksy and straight-ahead yet very accomplished in the expressions- like a well-wrapped present under the ‘family’ tree! Again, the trademark smoothness of the powerful Big Love voice buttressed by the tight skill of rhythmic friends!"

lyrics

This Family

Advent calendars and time
Snowy village lit inviting white light
Tell the kids to go outside
Light a fire in this brush pile so high

This family
It warms my heart to a place that I call home
This family
Will never fall apart forever bonded by our love
Our love, our love…

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la

Brother, Sister let me hear
Your resolutions for this coming new year
Father, Mother do not fear
We’re all together in this living room here

This family
It warms my heart to a place that I call home
This family
Will never fall apart forever bonded by our love
Our love, our love…

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la

When you’re tired and the dark is heavy
We are the people in your life
The light in your life

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
