Tyra moved to Toronto in the Fall of 2017 and is already taking the city by storm, packing venues and working with local producers and promoters while writing and recording her original music. Look out for her first two singles “Frida” and “Still Good”.
Tyra has performed in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, and Amsterdam. As a songwriter, has an ability to tell stories that elevate the mundane, and convey expression across the spectrum of human experience. She combines the melancholic with the joyful, and humour with earnest sobriety.
No one is sure what to expect when she steps up to the microphone.
She is continuously evolving, and loves experimentation. Tyra is classically trained in piano, flute, and voice, and taught herself guitar in her early teens. She has built upon this training by opening herself up to new styles of music, new techniques and by collaboration with musicians across genres.
Her focus lately has been to develop and record her original compositions, which blend electronic and acoustic instrumentation with her soulful vocals and storytelling.
