Tyler Lyle

Tyler Lyle performing live with The Midnight

Tyler Lyle (born December 1, 1985) is an American musician who is the primary guitarist, vocalist and lyricist for The Midnight.

Born and raised in rural Georgia, Lyle began his career in music as a young adult and became regionally known after winning a songwriting contest in 2010. This led to the self-release of his debut album, gaining him national exposure, and he also began writing for other artists.

Lyle moved to Los Angeles in 2011, and in 2012 his A&R representative arranged for him to meet Danish producer Tim McEwan for a songwriting session. The two had an instant connection and began making music. Lyle and McEwan became a duo known as The Midnight and self-released their first extended play (EP) in 2014. Together, they have released two EPs, four albums, and two remix albums.[1][2]

Outside of The Midnight, Lyle continues to release solo work and regularly tours around the United States. In 2016, he began a semi-regular podcast titled From The Secret Lair that includes music and self-commentary. He is married and has one child.

Early life

Jamison Tyler Lyle[3] was born and raised in Carrollton, Georgia, the son of Mark and Deborah Lyle.[4] His father is also a musician and is the house-guitarist for the George Britt Band, who plays at the Lowell Opry House in Carrollton.[5]

Lyle was frequently around music growing up, being exposed to the musical genres of Country, Gospel, Bluegrass, and Classic rock.[6] His dad was the music minister at the family's church, and he grew up singing in the choir.[7] After initially having no interest in a music career as a child, Lyle began playing the guitar in high school, learning tabs from his father and online.[8]

Lyle attended college at Asbury University in Kentucky for one year before transferring to Georgia State University, earning a degree in philosophy in 2008.[9][10][11] After college, he used some money from a student loan to move to Prague and got certified to teach English as a foreign language.[12][13][10] He then relocated to Paris and began attending Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines University to satisfy the requirements for his student visa.[14][11] When he wasn't working as a teacher or taking classes, Lyle performed at various bars and pubs around the city and began writing more music.[8] He later returned to Georgia in 2009 to begin a music career.[11] To support himself, he worked a variety of odd jobs including roofing, landscaping, food delivery, and advertising.[15][16][17]

Early career

Working as a folk singer-songwriter since the age of 21, Lyle self-released his first record in 2007 and later released an EP in 2009.[18][11] He gained larger exposure in the summer of 2010 when he won the Open Mic Shootout at the music club Eddie's Attic in Decatur, Georgia, taking home a cash prize of $1000.[5][19][20] Previous winners of the contest include John Mayer, Clay Cook, and Jennifer Nettles.[21] Lyle performed four original songs at the event: Closer to Me, Pretty Lady, Nashville, and The Secret.[22][23][24][25] The prize money helped Lyle fund and self-release his debut album The Golden Age & The Silver Girl the following year in July.[26] The entire album was recorded in just one day and it was later recognized by NPR World Café as one of the top albums of 2011.[27][28][29]

Right after he finished making his debut album, Lyle moved to California to be closer to a new manager he had started working with,[30] and he later signed a publishing deal with Pulse Recordings.[12][13][31] He lived in an old house in Laurel Canyon that once belonged to Fleetwood Mac member Christine McVie before moving to an apartment by the beach in Santa Monica with a roommate from college.[27][13][32] Lyle continued self-releasing music throughout 2012 and 2013, and in 2013 he was the recipient of the Harald Adamson Lyric Award for pop music from the ASCAP Foundation.[33] During this time, he continued making occasional appearances at Eddie's Attic and toured throughout the country with other musicians, additionally playing shows at several music festivals including SXSW, Noise Pop, and MusicfestNW.[27]

Lyle has said that his musical influences include Paul Simon, Garth Brooks, and his father Mark.[34]

The Midnight

In 2012, Lyle met Tim McEwan at a songwriter’s workshop in North Hollywood [35] arranged by his A&R representative Katie Donovan.[36] Bonding over a mutual love of 80's rock,[37] they began writing songs together and at McEwan’s suggestion based their sound on 80’s synth. The first song they wrote was WeMoveForward,[36][38] and their first release as a duo under The Midnight moniker came in July 2014 with the extended play Days of Thunder. Lyle serves as the band's primary vocalist and guitarist is credited with writing the majority of the band’s lyrics. He has been the main vocalist in every The Midnight song containing vocals except for Synthetic, which was written and sung by McEwan.

Regarding his approach to writing for The Midnight, Lyle has said:[39][40]

I write The Midnight lyrically (mostly) as the fantasy that I never experienced. I lean a bit utopian sometimes and let the images get grander than I experienced. I was on the debate team. I had a lisp. I was really into Syphon Filter. The fun is in the make believe.

I write everyday. Some of it goes in The Midnight folder. Some of it goes off into far far away places. It works best when Tim has a cool musical skeleton and I have a cool lyrical skeleton we can smush together and build together.

Several songs originally written and performed by Lyle have been remade or remixed as The Midnight songs, including Lost & Found, Brooklyn, and Sometimes She Smiles.

Other work

Outside of The Midnight, Lyle continues to record and tour as a solo artist. Not long after his move to Los Angeles, Lyle formed with Andrew Smith and Jack Moore the group Smith, Lyle, and Moore, whose first EP was released in August 2020.[41] In 2012, he co-wrote two songs for Court Yard Hounds that appeared on their album Amelita.[4][42] His songs have been heard on the US television shows Hart of Dixie, Private Practice, and Gossip Girl.[43][44][45]

In January 2016, he began a monthly podcast titled From The Secret Lair,[46] with each episode consisting of a short three to six-song album alongside commentary by Lyle.[47] The first season featured twenty-three episodes that were recorded from his apartment in Brooklyn, New York, after which the podcast went on hiatus.[48] It was relaunched in Fall 2020 and the second season debuted that November, with episodes now being recorded from his home studio in Atlanta, Georgia.[49]

Personal life

Outside of music, Lyle's interests include books, Tarot card reading, philosophy, and bourbon/whiskey. In September 2014, he married Anna Jimenez.[50][51] Jimenez has performed backing vocals on a few of Lyle's songs and some of The Midnight's songs.[52] Previously residing in Southern California and New York City, the Lyles now live in Atlanta, Georgia with their son, Beau.

Nocturnal

Nocturnal album cover

Nocturnal is the second album from The Midnight. It was released independently by the band on October 13, 2017.[1] The instrumental version of the album was released on December 15, 2017.[2]

One single was released from Nocturnal prior to the album's release: Crystalline, which was released on September 22, 2017.[3]

Background and composition

The first hint of new music from The Midnight after the August 2016 release of Endless Summer was a snippet Tim McEwan posted to social media in December that same year.[4] The snippet had a title of Comet and featured McEwan as the vocalist, which would have been the first time since Synthetic that a song with his vocals was on a The Midnight release. Ultimately, Comet did not end up making the then-unknown album but was promised by McEwan to be released one day. The song was eventually included on the 5 Year Anniversary Edition reissue of Endless Summer.

In February 2017, a video of Nikki Flores singing to an unidentified song (which would turn out to be Light Years) was shared by the band.[5] McEwan shared in early March that he was en route to New York City to write new songs with Tyler Lyle.[6] The same week, McEwan said that there were some "moody vibes in the studio right now."[7] Also in March, it was posted on social media that a song titled Maniac Cop was being worked on, but no snippet was shared.[8] As no song on Nocturnal has that name, it is not known if the title was later changed or if the song was cut from the album. In late March, continuing production of new material was hinted at with McEwan posting that he was "struggling with the ever elusive kick drum."[9]

More information about new songs and a new album continued to be shared over the first half of 2017. In April, the band shared that the next album "will have a slightly darker tone"[10] and also shared a snippet of a song presumably titled Lone Wolf.[11] This particular song did not make the album but was later confirmed by McEwan to appear on a future album instead.[12] A clip of Collateral was posted in early May.[13] In June, McEwan shared that he was "going through guitar takes for one of our new songs" and further stated that "the lead sound is SO PERFECT. Very "In The Air Tonight.""[14] In June, the band shared that "there's a track on the new album that'll make your nose bleed."[15] Lyrics from what would end up being the song Crystalline were posted in early July.[16]

On August 9, 2017, The Midnight officially confirmed that a new EP (later regarded as an album) was being released on October 13.[17] About a week later, an upcoming single titled Crystalline was teased and was referred to as a song that "will set the tone for the new EP."[18] Later in August, a clip of Tokyo Night Train was shared. On August 23, the EP's title of Nocturnal was announced alongside a snippet of the title track.[19] A few days later, the artwork for Nocturnal was teased with McEwan saying "if you like movies like Drive, Blade Runner, Thief, Manhunter and The Terminator then you going to love the artwork for Nocturnal."[20] The band said in early September that the new EP "will be slightly more introvert" and "less concerned about big hooks and more about creating mood and vibe."[21] A short clip of Crystalline was shared on September 9 and the single was said to be "coming soon."[22] On September 13, the band said they were "putting the finishing touches to the mix of our first single Crystalline."[23] Two days later, the band referred to Crystalline as being "different, yet still familiar" and stated that they "went off book a little bit" with the song.[24] Another snippet of Crystalline was shared on September 18 and a release date of September 22 was announced.[25] The single artwork was revealed on September 21.[26]

After the single release, more new lyrics (this time from Shadows) were posted towards the end of September.[27] It was also shared in another post that a track from Nocturnal would have a solo "that is a straight up homage to Whitesnake's Is This Love."[28] During an interview with LA Music Blog on the release day of Crystalline, McEwan said the following about Nocturnal:[29]

It’ll be more in line with “Vampires” or another track called “Equalizer”. What inspires me is usually movies. The aesthetic I’m going for with this new EP is more older Michael Mann movies like Thief and Heat or James Cameron’s The Terminator from 1984. That kind of nighttime, Los Angeles, cruising around the city, streetlights, neon, maybe a little bit of rain coming down the windscreen. It’ll have more moody, cooler vibe. It’ll be less John Hughes and more Miami Vice at night.

A small snip of the album artwork was shared on October 6, [30] and a collaboration with Timecop1983 was teased on October 7.[31] Names of the tracks from Nocturnal were shared over the following days, and the full artwork was revealed on October 9.[32] A duet with Nikki Flores titled Light Years was revealed on October 11 and was said to be a "spiritual successor to Jason."[33] The complete tracklist was revealed on October 12,[34] and Nocturnal was officially released the following day on October 13.[35]

Two days after release, Nocturnal was the top-selling release on Bandcamp and it remained in the top spot for over a week.[36][37][38] The album charted at number seventeen on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums Chart after release and the following year it peaked at number seventeen on the Billboard Heatseekers Album chart.[39][40] Nocturnal received mainly positive reviews from critics, who noted the darker and more mature sound compared to Days of Thunder and Endless Summer.[41][42][43][44][45] It was chosen by NewRetroWave as their top EP of 2017.[46]

Nocturnal contains seven tracks, but there was originally planned to be more, with the band deciding to cut several songs that didn't fit the overall theme of the album.[47] Lyle initially envisioned the album as a "full Halloween/October release that was bit darker than the usual The Midnight fare." The band said they were inspired by several noir themed shows and films, including Stranger Things, The Terminator, and the movies created by John Carpenter.

Nocturnal sees The Midnight collaborating again with Nikki Flores on the song Light Years. Flores co-wrote the song and provides vocals to accompany those of Lyle. She previously worked with the band on the song Jason from Endless Summer. Additionally, The Midnight also collaborated with popular synthwave artist Timecop1983 on the track River of Darkness.
