About Tyler Sanford
"The music industry isn't just gonna come knockin' on your door."
I remember my mother telling me these exact words during one of our heartfelt, intriguing conversations. We were discussing my progress as a musician, specifically from when I began recording music in the year 2004. I know that I have something to offer the world musically. However, I wasn't sure if these are the kinds of songs today's music industry is looking for. Encouragement from family members and close friends gives me the confidence to continue writing and performing music.
What makes me different from the countless others attempting to make names for themselves? For one, I don't strive to be the "hit machine". I'm also not one to record an album for the sake of impressing today's consumers. I write what I like to write, and if it makes an impression, then I've done what I set out to do.
I would consider myself more of a songwriter than a performer, though I do have experience performing. I am a guitarist/vocalist in and a founder of Volatile Memories, an alternative rock band with heavy folk leanings. You can find our material at https://www.facebook.com/volatilememories/?fref=ts
