Known for his vocal prowess and fast-flying improvisational piano solos, Tyler Kealey is a singer-songwriter who collects little moments in the every day and brings them to life through his songs.
With sharp, storytelling lyrics and melodic piano lines that lean into folk just as much as they do blues and rock, each performance takes the audience on a journey of untamed adventure.
He is just as at home on a festival stage as he is in a listening room; Tyler’s energy, charisma, and raw talent on his instrument have made him a favorite within the Ottawa music scene.
He is currently working on new material to be released in the summer of 2018.
quotes and reviews.
- Dick Cooper, The Cooper Brothers
“Tyler gained acclaim throughout Canada, the United States, and even China, as an exceptional musician and is a perennial audience favourite at the Ottawa Bluesfest. His song-writing ability, vocal prowess, and astonishing mastery of the piano, along with his genius regarding all things musical, are incredibly inspiring to the students who participate in the Blues In The Schools program and to all music fans that witness his performances. ”
- Mark Monahan, Executive Director, Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest
“Tyler’s songwriting has a great knack for taking everyday items and happenings and making them seem extraordinary through his melody and delivery. I’ve never heard a voice quite like his.”
- Graham Greer, Barstool Prophets
“Kealey’s a talented singer and piano player with a voice and a story-to-tell not unlike Billy Joel.”
- Denis Armstrong, "Local Artists are what makes a scene," 24 hours Ottawa
“He is fluent in so many ways: jazz, rock, blues, celtic folk, and pop. His commands of melody, harmony, rhythm and improvisation have always impressed greatly. I was happy to book Kevin Hearn of the Barenaked Ladies as an opening act for Tyler’s CD release at the Black Sheep Inn in 2009. Tyler brought in a great crowd and sold out the place, playing an unforgettable show, as well as selling dozens of his latest CD.”
- Paul Symes, owner, Black Sheep Inn
