Post Paradise
Post Paradise
Blending strong lyrical and melodic influences from multiple genres, the four musicians comprising Post Paradise deliver an indie/alternative rock sound that is unique and memorable. Combined with a synchronized light show, Post Paradise bring a rock edge and reverberating beat to an underlying indie classical vibe, best showcased by the punctuation of the cello, played by Amy Morgan. Fusing the depth and beauty of the cello with singer/guitarist Nick Duarte's signature vocals and edgy riffs, the two become the cornerstone of the quartet further enhanced by Mark Roshon on drums and percussion, and Brian Zeiger on bass guitar.

Together, the four create a sound all their own, with echoes of nineties alternative, modern indie poeticism, and classical music. Playing their first show in 2009, Post Paradise is now a seasoned and recognized entity on the Colorado music scene. 

The
band's newest EP, "Bring It To Life (Side A)"  was released in October of 2015.

Tyler T. was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas. Throughout his college years, he performed throughout the area both as a solo act and with various bands. While at South Plains College, Tyler developed a fond interest in different styles of music, unusual instruments, and in creating original sounds. He also enjoyed songwriting and touring throughout the state. After many years of starting, joining, and performing with different bands, he discovered his niche - performing solo as Tyler T., a nickname given to him by friends throughout the years. He eventually earned his degree in Commercial Music from South Plains College and continues to jam locally as well as all over the country. Tyler's influences and interests began to evolve as he got into different types of music in high school. The Grateful Dead, Michael Hedges, and other types of music changed the way he wrote and performed. At the age of 18, he began his first solo performances around town. After several years of experimenting with different styles and voicings, Tyler eventually evolved into an exclusive acoustic guitar player. Tyler enrolled at South Plains College in the fall of 2003. While there, he enrolled in courses in Audio Engineering, Music Theory, Songwriting, as well as in other courses that are essential to developing musicians. Throughout his college experience, he continued to play around with different ideas and instruments. He gained a reputation around town as a truly unique performer and continued to evolve as a musician. It was during this time period that Tyler got interested in loop sampling and didjeridoos- the defining aspects of his original style. The loop sampling allowed Tyler to play more than one instrument on stage and record them on the spot, creating the sound of an entire band, yet executed by only him. The number of instruments increased as he added small instruments such as hand drums, shakers, triangles and jew's harps. He bought a didjeridoo in the summer of 2005 and incorporated it as a major staple of the sound. As more people around this area discovered Tyler and his unique style, he started to play more frequently, the size of his audience increased, and he began to participate in small tours. He received high recognition and respect from his college professors, as well as fellow musicians. He also began recording, giving guitar lessons, and jamming with new groups. While in college, he became known as the "one man band", as well as the only performer to use didjeridoos in stage performance. Tyler eventually made his way into every live music venue in Lubbock and played an average of four to five nights a week. Tyler graduated with an Associate's Degree in Commercial Music in May of 2007. The music of Tyler T. is as original as his influences are diverse. Tyler fell in love with the aggressive acoustic guitar sounds of songwriters like Ani DiFranco, Keller Williams and Kaki King. There are also traces of high energy electronica and techno beats rumbling under the grooves he creates. He also draws inspiration from Classical and Avant Garde music, as well as music from all over the world. Tyler gets his vocal timbre from growing up listening to early grunge and his improvisational spirit from listening to artists like Frank Zappa and the Grateful Dead. There are many other things that set Tyler T. apart from other performers. Every performance from Tyler will be something totally new - featuring parts never before played, totally improvised, and never done again. This is part of what keeps his musical evolutionary process rolling and his songwriting inspiration flowing. Tyler has held on to a musical vibe that has an "organic" feeling. He has always been fond of using sounds that have certain earthy tones to them such as natural percussion (marimbas and xylophones), woodwind instruments, and acoustic instruments. In addition, a sense of unpredictability, raw energy, and theatrical expression contribute to the makings of the music of Tyler T. To this day, Tyler is respected as one of the hardest working musicians not only in Lubbock, but also in Texas and the western states. He continues to tour, write constantly, record, and perform relentlessly. He has played countless shows, festivals, road gigs, private parties, and community gatherings since the beginning of his career. He has also performed with and met many highly respected and loved artists throughout the music industry. At 23 years old, Tyler T. still lives in Lubbock, Texas and can be found almost any night of the week at any live music venue in town, or out. Thanks for supporting musician driven music!
