Tyler Kealey has been a staple of the live music scene in Ottawa since the early 2000s. Performing his piano-based pop act three to four times a week over the last decade has cemented his raw talent and ability to connect with live audiences into a formidable force, bringing originality to each performance.
In between playing countless live shows, Tyler has recently recorded a live album, The Dog Is Dead, in 2018. This album captures the energy of a live performance and includes stories about the songs. CDs available at live shows, or check out the music page, or find Tyler on Spotify.
Recent studio work.
Tyler has been working on a few new recordings with Eric of Johnny Hall Productions. With a goal of releasing some new music in 2018, the songs that have been coming to life in the studio are unlike anything else he's ever done. Check out my new track SPELL on the Music page for a sample.
He has also been reaching out in different directions, with more new music, recording an original track with Jon Chandler from Amos the Transparent at Shoebox Studios in Ottawa.
Some recent studio work includes accordion tracks for Brock Zeman’s latest release, Carnival, as well and some accordion and keyboard work for folk singer/songwriter David Olney.
Tyler also recently contributed some accordion parts for Celtic band Three Finger Shot's upcoming release.
