|Birth name||Jamison Tyler Lyle|
|Born||December 1, 1985|
Carrollton, Georgia, U.S.
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 and have continuously released new music since.
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.

Sunset is a song by The Midnight. It is the first single and second track from their album Endless Summer. The single was released on May 13, 2016. Silk Music released a remix single of Sunset on August 7, 2017, with this release also containing the Michael Cassette Remix, which would later be included on the 2017 remix album The Midnight Remixed.
The song was written by band members Tim McEwan and Tyler Lyle and produced by McEwan. The guitar on Sunset was performed by Johannes Jørgensen. It has a running time of five minutes and 26 seconds and is in the key of F major. Sunset is considered to be one of the band's signature songs, and is often the last song performed at live shows.
In addition to appearing on The Midnight Remixed, the Michael Cassette Extended Remix of Sunset appears on the Silk Music compilation Silk Music Pres. Progressive House Essentials 06.During a fan question-and-answer session on Twitter, Lyle said this about the lyrics of Sunset:
Now that song started at a cheap motel in Burlington, VT. There were crow bar marks on the door frame. I thought “now this would be the first stop for a couple of kids who faked their deaths and went on the run.”
