Meet Downtown Singer and Songwriter: Tyler Noel

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tyler Noel.

Tyler, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I have been singing since the age of five. I grew up in the Church and began singing in the choir like most urban singers. I come from of family of talented singers and musicians and music has always been a big thing growing up for me. My dream has always been to be a successful recording artist and performer. Early in my career, there was a girl group that I was recruited to be the lead singer for and it pretty much started me on my professional path. It opened my eyes up to what the music industry was really all about. I really had to grow up fast in the industry because the business really did have a lot of things that could have you unfocused and caught up. I was a teen when I started my career professionally by signing with the girl group and yes I performed then and throughout the years at talent shows, showcases, and anywhere else that has a microphone and a stage. LoL. I still perform as much as I possibly can while I still write and record as an artist daily. I enjoyed the group thing for awhile but learned that girls and their personalities really have to melt together in order for the group to really work and that always wasn’t the case. I eventually moved to Atlanta, GA from Fort Lauderdale, FL a few years ago in order to chase my dreams of a solo R&B career. I am currently in the studio here in Atlanta working on my first solo album soon to be released and I am just looking forward to future and what it holds for me.

Has it been a smooth road?
The stroke that I suffered at the age of 18 hit like a freight train out of the blue and was my biggest obstacle at a young age. There were no signs, no warnings, and I thought I was young and invincible back then. I was hospitalized thinking that I may never sing again and that I may not recover from this and I was completely in a state of depression and despair. With the support of family and friends, I fought back to learn how to do many things that we take for granted daily like “talking” for example. The process to recover fully was hard but it really showed me that I could overcome anything with work and determination. My cheering squad wasn’t going to let me and fail and I could just feel that God had bigger plans for me than just sitting in that hospital bed. Music was like therapy for me that helped get me through these dark times of recovery. The cure for the difficult times is God, family, your team, the fans and the belief in yourself. The God I know has given me this gift of voice for a reason and I decided I was going to use it the best way I know how.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
My proudest moment was when I first heard one of my songs playing on the radio. Just to hear something I created blaring out the speakers of the car I was an amazing event. I remember rushing home and telling everyone that would listen that my song made it to the radio and was getting play.

Were there moments when you had to struggle?
My greatest struggle is just getting people (men) to get past the physical appearance and just recognize that I have talent and I want to say something with my music. Men in this industry tend to first see you as a piece of meat and you have to get them to see that you are professional, focused and talented in order to be taken seriously.

Is there something we can do as a city to improve the outlook for professionals like you?
Atlanta has been great to me thus far and my career. It’s the city that I first heard my song on the radio playing and it helped to create one of my greatest moments. I learned so much here in Atlanta about myself and the industry as a whole. Atlanta allowed me to meet so many people in the industry because even though Atlanta is this huge city, the industry itself is a small family and it welcomed me in with its arms. I, however, would not recommend a new artist coming here in order to find success because Atlanta has become so oversaturated with talent and hungry artist in a city where talent almost gets you nowhere. Atlanta is heavy about who you know and not what you bring to the table in my opinion as of lately. For a new artist, it would be hard to find an even playing field without knowing the movers and shakers in the industry. I do however think this could be improved if talent was once again given more merit than who you know.
