Hey Guys,

This particular forum has not had some shameless self-promotion in a while, so I guess I'll throw my hat in the ring. I've just moved down to Durham, NC, and I'm trying to network a bit and hopefully pick up some gigs. But I'd also just like to get my music out there. I play a lot of traditional stuff, some covers, and sometimes slip in an original or two. I guess it's the "folk singer" approach... I also spent some time in Ireland, so I picked up some music there as well (it's a great place to do so).

I've got a new website here:

http://tyleraldersonmusic.com/

I'm trying to recording some stuff and throw it up there, right now what I have is a few songs from a gig I did last year (Irish stuff) and a few tracks I just recently recorded in my basement (partly inspired by having gone to see Willie a few weeks before, as you can tell by the song selection).

Anyway, I'd love it if you'd give 'em a listen, I'll be posting more up there as I go, and hopefully playing out in the coming weeks/months. I don't know if anyone here hosts house concerts, but I'm always up for doing something like that.

-Tyler

Welcome to Durham, Tyler!!! I love it here!!

I encourage you to chat with Sean at FullSteam brewery. Sundays are Olde Timey Fun Days and they often have people playing there. A real family friendly place.

Also, Growler Girlz, on my side of town, just started having music a few times a week. Just a couple of places that you can tap into.

You, sir, are shameless. And I will give it a listen.

Thanks for the tips, Kitty, I'll check those places out. The area seems like a great place, lots of music going on and a nice vibe. I was busking down at the farmer's market today and did pretty well, people were very chatty and friendly, which is nice. Definitely will go back there next week, especially since I have learned that there is such a thing as a donut muffin.

Hey guys,

I've just finished up a new album, and it's up for streaming and purchase on my website at http://tyleraldersonmusic.com/music. It was recorded at the Rubber Room in Chapell Hill, and features songs from America and Ireland. Let me know what you think!

Was that you on the Blue Plate Special Saturday?

I stopped in for minute before the show and then stopped back by during the set. Seen three songs or so before heading back out. Had a relative from Los Angeles visiting for the first time and was showing him the sites.

That was me (in the blue sweater)! Glad you could stop by for a bit, hope your relative liked the visit. I realized too late that I was wearing Carolina blue instead of Tennessee orange like everyone else, but didn't get too much flak for it...
