    William Tyler

    On January 25th, 2019 William Tyler returns with Goes West, his follow-up to 2016’s Modern Country on Merge Records. Here is an excerpt from the M.C. Taylor-penned bio: William and I bonded early in our relationship over Barry Hannah, a hellraising writer from Mississippi who practically reinvented the way that words could be assembled on a page. Like Hannah, William Tyler knows the South—as a crucible of American histories and cultures, an entity capable of expansive beauty and incomprehensible violence, often in the same beat—as his native place, the place that holds him and that he runs from.
