Artist Q&A

@JamminJavaMei's Q&A With Tyler Hilton


Tyler Hilton is a fantastic pop/rock singer/songwriter. He's also an actor - he had a recurring role on "One Tree Hill" and played Elvis in the Johnny Cash biopic "Walk The Line". He's here Saturday night for TWO SHOWS with Tony Lucca, another one of our faves!

Where and when was your first show? 

Pangea Coffee in Palm Desert CA

What band/artist would you consider to be your main influence?

Right now it's Keith Urban and Blake Mills.

What is one of your most memorable or off-the-wall touring experiences?

Leaving my bass player at a truck stop and having no idea until the bus was way down the road. He had to call us. We had a fan pick him up!

Favorite Food: guacamole.

Favorite Drink: my grandpas fresh OJ. It's like a magic elixir.

If you were to have a film/movie based on your career, which actors or band would you select to portray yourself?

I'd like to say id follow in the footsteps of Eminem and 50 Cent and play myself but that might weird me out a bit. Let's say Dicaprio...he's amazing right?

Cat-Person, Dog-Person, or both?  Dog person!! Without a dog...yet! My more realistic and better half is winning our get a dog or don't battle.

What two words would best describe your music? Rootsy and rocking
