Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown have been setting the music world on fire with their soulful writing and tasty guitar work—and for good reason. Bryant, the band's singer and guitarist, spent the better part of five tours with Jeff Beck, often jamming with the legend during encores. Meanwhile, guitarist Graham Whitford is about as close to rock royalty as you can get; his father, Brad Whitford, is a founding member of Aerosmith.
Some have called him a future guitar god, and with good reason. At age 21, Tyler Bryant's resume already reads like a guitarist who's been performing for a long time. Before he had even reached the legal voting age, Bryant was awarded the Robert Johnson Foundation’s New Generation Award and was chosen by Eric Clapton to play at his Crossroads Guitar Festival.
