Home / Music / Artist Interviews / INTERVIEW: Tyler John


Hi Tyler, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

Hey, thanks for having me!! I have been wonderful thank you for asking; life couldn’t be much better than it is right now. Probably better than I deserve.

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “My Truth”?

“My Truth” is all about finding out who you really and truly are despite other people’s judgements, opinions, and influence. This track is more focused on the importance of the journey itself and how people can judge your exploration based off who you used to be or maybe said you wanted to be.

Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?

There wasn’t a specific catalyst of the inspiration behind “My Truth”, but rather just a multitude of moments where I felt like I truly didn’t know who I was and was tired of letting people limit my creativity and ability to explore internally. Self-awareness can be scary, but once you get there I think everyone can realize that their inner self is pretty dope.

Any plans to release a video for the single?

I am in the development stages for a movement video to accompany the track, and am really REALLY excited to share it. Bringing an abstract concept such as music into a visual art while still conveying the meaning is tough, but I think the amazing collective I’m working with will do just that. I can’t wait for you to see it, it’s going to be lit.

How was the recording and writing process?

Amazing, honestly. This project as a whole has been the product of around 9 months of non-stop writing, creative explosions, practicing, lots of sandwiches, and studio time. This is the hardest I have ever pushed myself creatively – the writing for these songs was extremely vulnerable, but very honest. The team I have surrounding me helped facilitate all of my crazy ideas and brought them together to form Between Giants. We truly created something beautiful and dynamic, and I am very excited for the finished project to be out and to start sharing my music with the world. I’ve never been this excited to get something out to people.

What role does theater plays in your music?

Well, I have done theatre my whole life, and I live for putting on a show. This is what I love to do more than anything. I love producing and writing and recording, but man. Live sets are what it is all about. The electricity in a room, the feeling when people are jamming to your music and singing your lyrics, the way that….okay sorry I got off topic. I could talk about that feeling for hours. I am seeking to bring life back into local music scenes by putting a show on that pushes me to my limits and leaves the audience feeling like there is nowhere else in the world they would rather be than at that venue listening to and watching me perform. In between playing my piano and guitar simultaneously, I never stop moving and I strive to create an environment where you won’t stop either. What it boils down to is that Music is a service industry, and I want to show you how thankful I am for the support, and that you are there supporting my dream, and the dream of other artists. I will never half-ass anything. Especially not on stage.

Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?

YES! “My Truth” is just the debut for this project. I’m working on my first EP and I will be releasing singles from that in the coming months. Can’t wait for you to hear all the work my team and I have put into this.

Any tentative release date or title in mind?

I’m going to be a little bit dark and mysterious here and not give too much away; but the next single I will be releasing is called “Sympathize”. LOVE that track.

Any plans to hit the road?

That can’t come soon enough. God I love to travel. Did I mention how much I love playing shows? Anyway, I just began booking shows in my local area of Orlando and have a bunch of those coming up. My agent and I are planning a tour in the fall time, hopefully for about 2 weeks covering most of the south and the east coast. I hope to see some of you there once it comes together!

What else is happening next in Between Giants’ world?

Shows, singles, and a lot of coffee. I won’t ever stop working and creating something that people will want to be a part of. I won’t stop until Between Giants makes waves! So count on that for sure

Thank you so much for your time, and I hope you liked the song! Much more coming soon!!!
