Tyler Childers Caricature


Tyler Childers Caricature, illustrated here in 2017, age 26 upon the release of his album “Purgatory”.

Childers is an American singer and songwriter. His music is a mix of country, bluegrass and folk.

In eighth grade, when spending most of his time on the bench on the JV baseball team, his coach started playing John Prine. Childers remembers the moment vividly. “I turned to him and said, ‘What is that?’ And he said, ‘You mean you have never heard John Prine?’ Ever since then, I’ve been blaring him, and he’s one of the first songwriters who had a big influence on how I wanted my sound to be.” When Childers opened for Prine on tour, he joined him for versions of “Paradise” and “Please Don’t Bury Me.” Says Prine of Childers: “He’s wonderful fella, a really good writer, and my audiences love him.”

Word about Childers started creeping across state lines and he began booking gigs in Nashville, where he met Sturgill Simpson’s drummer, Miles Miller, after a night at local club the Basement. Miller thought Childers and Simpson shared common ground, and the Sailor’s Guide to Earth Grammy winner and young artist ended up making Purgatory together, along with Ferguson, at the Butcher Shoppe studio in town. When the LP came out, it did shockingly well in sales, hitting Number 28 on the Billboard 200.

With his blazing redhead appeal is a broad note that casts beyond just country, driven by the songwriter’s simple yet poetic turns of phrase, uncompromisingly deep holler settings, and willingness to explore outside of the box both in sound and sentiment. It’s a complex rural renaissance that thrives in exploring the contradictions of modern America under Childers’ hard and intimidating stare.

His music, a mix of Woody Guthrie, John Prine, Bob Dylan and Blackberry Smoke, will move you through moonshine and cocaine-fueled backroads, to ballads of nostalgia and regret in “Bus Stop” and “Creeker” from new LP Country Squire. Rolling to the edge of a tentative redemption, “Lady May” and closer “Nose on the Grindstone” touched down for a smooth landing.

Top hits: “Whitehouse Road”, “House Fire”, “I Swear (To God)”, “If Whiskey Could Talk”, “Deadman’s Curve”, “Rock Salt And Nails”, “Coal”, “Purgatory”, “All Your’n”, “Follow You To Vergie”, “Hard Times” and “Feathered Indians”.

In September 2018, Childers won Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2018 Americana Music Honors & Awards.
