Tyler Keith was born in the panhandle of Florida. After High School, he moved to Mississippi to study writing at Ole Miss with Barry Hannah. Instead of graduating from college, he joined some bands, most notably the Neckbones (SOULS ON FIRE, THE LIGHTS ARE GETTING DIM, Fat Possum) making four albums with that group and touring the States and Europe extensively. In the first decade of the 2000s he fronted the band, Tyler Keith and the Preacher's Kids, making three records, ROMEO HOOD, WILD EMOTIONS, and THE DEVIL'S HITLIST. Tyler Keith's newest album, his thirteenth, is a solo project, rock n roll album made with Bronson Tew on drums, recording, engineering, and other things, and a few other friends, recorded at Dial Back Studios in Waster Valley Mississippi.
