About Tyler Williams
This Stone Mountain, GA native was reared in a household with parents that spun the hits of Marvin Gaye and Michael W. Smith while Tyler and his older brother were discovering the hit makers of the 90s --- Alan Jackson, George Strait, Boyz II Men & Mariah Carey. Recognizing early on that he wanted a career in entertainment, he would capture a role in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and performed for two years at the Fox Theater in Atlanta at ages 11 and 12. However, a failed performance at age 13 in a rock band caused him to change directions. Tyler would then spend his summers with his uncles in the auto shop learning the mechanics behind combustion engines and began his path to the NASCAR late model and sprint car racing series. After nearly a decade of milestones that would find him capturing his first victory lane among 15 years veterans during his fourth year as a driver and even finishing as the #2 ranking position in points in his series, he decided to finally overcome his fear of the stage and redirected his focus to music. This journey would spawn a debut ep Believe Again and book I Have a Voice, the inspirational and motivational look at the lessons he’s learned in the racing and now music community. Continuing to hone his craft while he furthers his racing career, Tyler has debuted preview singles Good for Me and Simple from his sophomore release this fall. Good For Me, a song co-penned by Tyler and produced by Jonathan Roye (Kelsea Ballerini, Hunter Hayes & Kid Rock), is available on iTunes, Spotify and all major online retailers and serves as the title track for his album which will be available for pre-sale on December 2.
