Multi-instrumentalist, producer, and educator, Tyler Sussman creates music to inspire, heal, and connect humanity and all life on Earth.
In 2007, Tyler moved from a California beach to Midtown Manhattan. After immersing in NYC's jazz scene, Tyler knew he needed a more peaceful lifestyle to sustain health and happiness. He followed his heart on a “sound healing journey” through the Pacific Northwest, Burning Man, and solitary sound-exploration in Costa Rican wilderness. Tyler experienced transcendental healing through the power of sound and began integrating his jazz/classical training with sound healing technologies.
Now living in between Los Angeles and New York City, Tyler performs and produces music that combines elements of jazz/funk/world and ambient/minimalist/electronic both as a soloist and in collaboration with musicians, vocalists, meditation/yoga teachers, and organizations.
Tyler has collaborated with Lenny Kravitz, Blue Six and Lysa Aya Trenier. Tyler created created Aya and Tyler’s demo album “Oshuns of Love.” Tyler is producing Aya's new album and performs regularly with Aya as Aya and Tyler.
Tyler is also an educator of children and adults. He taught K-12 music classes at Saint Ann’s School and Sound Healing/Music Meditation classes at WOOM Center, ISHTA Yoga, and Abhaya Yoga. Tyler envisions a sustainable, progressive, and long-term elevation of universal musical literacy effectively making the communicative, expressive, and healing benefits of music available to everyone. Tyler believes that making this education process smooth, affordable, and integrated with technology will fuel social and environmental reform from the grassroots level.
Tyler fuses elements of jazz/funk/world + ambient/minimalist/electronic.
