Born in Columbus, Ohio, Tyler grew up with two brothers and a sister. His mother was a maths teacher by profession before eventually becoming a basketball coach. His father was a coach too as well as the school principal. Tyler was a very active basketball player going as far as playing in the varsity team. He even got a scholarship offer from Otterbein University to play basketball but he decided to forego this opportunity to pursue his dream of singing and making music.
His passion has developed way back in 2007 when he started playing around with an old keyboard he found in his closet. A Christmas gift from his mother, it turned point for the singer. He created a channel called ‘slushieguys’ where he uploaded his videos and skits. He started tinkering with various melodies from the radio and eventually devoted his time to recording an album titled ‘No phun intended’ between 2007 and 2008.
Nick Thomas, the future twenty-one pilots’ bassist was a high school teammate of Tyler who also contributed to his solo album by entering some guitar melodies. The pair even performed ‘The star-spangled banner’ at a game together.
