For more than ten years he has been releasing music under his own name, as well as his 2016 founded project – The Secret Lair.Tim & Tyler met at a random co-writing session in Los Angeles. Combining Tim’s 80s aesthetics with Tyler’s singer-songwriting skills, they soon found a joint studio chemistry.
‘WeMoveForward’ and the chorus for ‘Gloria’ were written that day. Subsequently the two musicians founded The Midnight, releasing their debut EP ‘Days of Thunder’ in 2014. Electing to forge their own path in the ever-evolving landscape of modern music, the bicoastal duo have self-released the majority of their catalogue, up until now. Their music pays homage to the dreamy and uplifting, yet subversively melancholic 80s film and television scores of their youth. A new album is expected to drop mid 2019 followed by an extensive tour, keep an eye out for more information in the future.
