"Tyler is a true professional in every sense. Recently at the Opening of the BC Canada Pavilion in Beijing, China - Tyler was a musical ambassador for Canada as he delivered a musical performance to Chinese and Canadian dignitaries that was a true representation of his talent as an original artist. We look forward to working with Tyler again on future projects."
