Welcome back to BuzzMusic, Tyler Allred. We can't get enough of the uplifting tone and feel of your latest single, "Often." What inspired you to create this personal and relatable single?
Well, thanks! Honestly, this is one of those songs that when I started writing it just completed itself very quickly without me having too much of an idea of what it’s about. Once I got to the line “You’ll count your come ups, not your losses, hope you’re still having fun” it started to make sense to me.
What sort of instrumental atmosphere did you want to deliver within your latest single, "Often?" Did you have any help when creating the instrumental arrangements?
This one started as just a demo of my vocals and acoustic guitar as most of my songs do. I sent it over to my great friend and collaborator Rain Man and we proceeded to have an all-night session where we just built the whole song from extremely raw to what you hear now. We basically just kept adding different sounds we thought were fun until we had something we enjoyed listening to.
What message did you want to convey to your audience through your lyricism within "Often?" What did you want your audience to take away for themselves?
I suppose it’s just kind of a “hey guys I know life is weird and we all have insecurities and doubt but you’re a being of infinite love and potential and life can be amazing so be yourself and try to have a good time with it.”
In your own words, you've mentioned that you "write songs and sometimes do other stuff." Could you elaborate on the "other stuff?" What sort of musical endeavors do you typically dive into?
Of course, elaborate on the other stuff. I guess what I mean is normal human being activity, also it was just the easiest way out for me to not write an actual bio about myself because it feels weird.
What's next for you?
Oh Yes! The future! What a strange, intangible, arguably strictly imaginative concept! When I daydream it always seems to point in the direction of more music. If I were a gamblin’ man I’d place my bets on more songs!
