Tylor Jay Santos
R&B, Alternative, Acoustic
Zachary Osborn, Music Associate, Radio FWD
In a music industry that is dominated by social media and fan interaction, Tyler Jay Santos may very well be one of the most mysterious artists in Toronto. A quick search will show that he is a singer/songwriter from Pickering, and that he is a frequent collaborator with the Toronto EDM artist GOVI (who is regularly found on the Apple music radio show, OVO Sound Radio). That’s it, that is all that one would be able to find. But in a way, this allows Tylor to let the music do the talking. Some artists feel that they constantly engage with fans and produce creative videos for tiktok, but Tylor likes to keep it simple. His Instagram shows off recent concert performances, news about collaborations, and the occasional sneak peak of upcoming music. 2021 has been a busy year for Tylor, with the release of the two singles Let Go and Cassiopeia, the latter of which currently has well over 18k plays on Spotify. These singles eventually led to the release of his 2nd LP, Still Alive, an album that features a wide range of sounds – from indie rock, pop, alternative to R&B. In addition, Tylor collaborated with Studio AM to produce a beautiful (visually and auditory) acoustic rendition of his song Lament, which will leave you with chills and goosebumps during its crescendo. For Tylor Jay Santos, keeping a low profile has worked as its allowed listeners and fans to fall in love with his music without the need to be someone that he’s not. The future is very bright for this young and up-and-coming artist out of Pickering and we look forward to his future projects.
