The Tyler Pearce Project is an energetic soulful pop/rock band from Rochester, N.Y. The project grew from solo singer-songwriter, Tyler Pearce, who brings soul and power in her honest voice and relatable lyrics, which is often compared to Alanis Morisette and Hozier.
Tyler released a solo EP More Than Life (2013) and performed in solo, duo and trio capacities, before deciding the full band sound, energy and shared experience was the real calling. As a yoga instructor, she felt passionate about getting people dancing and moving in their bodies; as well as the power of music to bring listeners into the present moment and connected to their senses.
Since creating a band in 2014, she and the project have played 200+ shows and festivals around the Northeast, including stops in San Francisco and Washington, D.C. The band is full of energy, sinking you into beat-driven grooves and hip moves, inspired by the likes of Grace Potter and Michael Franti.
In 2016, the TPP released full band singles "This Is Me," "Don't Say" and "Patience", currently getting radio airplay in upstate NY. With an album slated for 2017, the Project emphasizes big drums, creative guitar riffs and heavy bass behind Tyler's soulful vocals.
