About Tyler Smilo
Born deep in the Rustbelt of Ohio, Tyler Smilo lived a vagabond’s lifestyle before settling in Erie, PA. An award winning acoustic artist, Smilo’s Americana influenced folk songs are mostly autobiographical. However, the themes are easily relatable to the “everyman.” The release of two solo albums: Blood Into Sound and Dust In A Grave, a series of official videos dubbed The Rooftop Sessions, and fronting his own full band Daybreak Radio, has earned Smilo accolades in entertainment publications throughout the region.
