NAMM 2020 Interviews: Tyler Morris

Tyler Morris has been playing guitar at a professional level since he was 11, and at the ripe old age of 19 released his third album internationally. But Tyler is not just another young musical genius — his gift runs deeper than an amazing set of ears paired with two very skillful hands. Ever since he picked up a guitar, Tyler has been driven to get to the roots of the songs and styles he learns and absorbs, and to reflect his huge and growing body of influences onto his own interpretations and eventually, his own compositions.
