Innocent Tyler is a 3 piece pop punk band currently based out of Northwest Arkansas. Their upcoming release, Make A Scene, was produced by Luis Cabezas (of The Dollyrots) and mixed by John Fields (Pink, Goo Goo Dolls, etc.), with a music video for the single “Bree” directed by Jaret Reddick (of Bowling For Soup). The release will be supported by a US tour.
Vincent Tyler formed Innocent Tyler in Northwest Arkansas in 2016. “I realized my dream of becoming a musician at 9 years old when I met Jaret Reddick of Bowling for Soup. I was the youngest kid there by at least a decade, and I knew every word to every song. Jaret took notice and gave me this “fan of the day pack,” which was just some stickers and a beanie, but I was totally blown away! I saw him on stage that night with his crazy hair and guitar, and at that moment I knew that was what I wanted to do. Years later Jaret got me the gig as lead guitar player in The Erik Chandler band. I stayed with Erik for a couple of years, then decided it was time for me to do my own thing, and that’s where Innocent Tyler came in. I met Luis Cabezas when I was playing for Erik (I was already a huge Dollyrots fan) and we really clicked. It was one of those times when you knew something great was going to come out of it. So a couple of years later I texted Luis and asked if he wanted to produce my new EP. I sent him some demos and the next thing I knew I was on a plane to Tampa, FL to record. Everything was wrapped up and it was time to shoot a video for the single. Obviously Jaret had to be involved somehow, so I had him direct the video. The entire time, even though we are really good friends now, I was still freaking out that Jaret freaking Reddick was directing my music video.“
“I will never forget the first time I met Vincent. His eyes were huge and he didn’t say much. But, you could tell he was taking it all in. I saw him many times throughout the years. His dad brought him to shows every time we were close. You could always see that fire in his eyes. The first time I heard him play guitar, we were in the studio recording a BFS album. I had him play a guitar part on a song and he nailed it! When I heard the album he recorded with Luis, I was like, “Who is this kid?!?!?!” There is such a raw, organic energy to the songs. I was blown away that these were his first songs ever to record. I can’t wait to see what this “kid” from Arkansas does! Watch out music fans! HE is comin' !!!” - Jaret Reddick
