Tyler Shaw

B.C.’s own heart­throb set to steal the show at Mary Win­spear Cen­tre ahead of cross-Canada tour

Times Colonist - - Advertising Feature -

T yler Shaw was just 13 when he dis­cov­ered an old guitar un­der­neath his stair­case; he also dis­cov­ered his life’s pas­sion. Hav­ing never taken a pro­fes­sional mu­sic les­son, Tyler de­vel­oped his love and tal­ent for per­for­mance on his own, and has drawn in­spi­ra­tion from a wide range of artists in­clud­ing John Mayer, Michael Bublé, and The Script. Now 22 years old, this Co­quit­lam, B.C. na­tive has gone from fool­ing around with a set of sec­ond­hand strings to sign­ing a ma­jor record deal with Sony Mu­sic Canada, two cer­ti­fied Gold records, two Top 10 ra­dio smash sin­gles, and work­ing on re­leas­ing his first full length al­bum this sum­mer!

Head­ing from one end of the coun­try to the other, Tyler en­rolled as a stu­dent at the Univer­sity of PEI, and it was here where his dorm friends en­cour­aged him to sub­mit some of his YouTube videos to MuchMu­sic’s Coca-Cola’s Cov­ers com­pe­ti­tion. His tal­ent took him to the top and Tyler was cho­sen as the 2012 win­ner from over 13,000 sub­mis­sions. His tri­umph was broad­cast live from the MuchMu­sic Video Awards stage in June, 2012.

Fast for­ward to Novem­ber of the same year and Tyler re­leased his own orig­i­nal sin­gle Kiss

Good­night to ra­dio across the coun­try. The ro­man­tic pop jam is a co-write by Shaw, about hav­ing a night to re­mem­ber. Kiss Good­night be­came a gold selling sin­gle, help­ing Shaw to land open­ing slots on se­lect Cana­dian shows with artists in­clud­ing Ke$ha and Pit­bull. Ad­di­tion­ally, his track Show­time was adopted as the of­fi­cial song for the 2014 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup Canada.

This fall Tyler Shaw will head out on a Cana­dian tour open­ing for pop pow­er­house Kelly Clark­son and spe­cial guest Nick Jonas.

The Mary Win­spear Cen­tre is proud to present Tyler Shaw with spe­cial guest Kate Mor­gan on Sun., Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. Tick­ets are un­der $20, avail­able at the box of­fice 250-656-0275 or online at mary­win­spear.ca
