About Tyler Guitar


A National Flatpicking Champion and renowned guitarist, singer, songwriter, storyteller, producer, and educator—Tyler Grant’s adventurous career has spanned the better part of thirty years, and has taken him from sideman to bandleader; and young hotshot to mentor in the Bluegrass, Americana, and Jam Band scenes. Tyler has appeared at most major US festivals and performed thousands of concerts and guitar workshops worldwide. He was an original member of the Emmitt-Nershi Band and a sideman for Abigail Washburn, April Verch, and Adrienne Young. Tyler founded the Cosmic Americana band Grant Farm® in 2010. After five albums, a collaborative release with Fruition (the celebrated Meeting On The Mountain EP), eleven episodes of the Meeting On The Mountain LIVE Broadcast®, and hundreds of concerts and festival sets around the US, the band called an indefinite hiatus, seeking new directions during the “Great Pause” of 2020. Tyler has produced six solo albums to date, and released six albums by Grant Farm for his own Grant Central Records. When he’s not on the road performing, Tyler calls Denver, CO his home, and has been teaching at ArtistWorks since May 2023.
