Having been twice named the "Songwriter of the Year" by the Portland Songwriters Association (2007 and 2008) and "Best Male Artist" at the 2011 Portland Music Awards, Stenson's authentic sound is claiming stake on the national stage. Already considered one of the premiere singer/songwriters in the Northwest, Stenson was recently named a Top 10 Finalist in Guitar Center's 'Search for the Next Great American Songwriter’ contest with Don Was (out of 10,000) and, out of nearly 4,000 bands, he was hand-selected by Adam Duritz (Counting Crows) and Ryan Spaulding (RSLblog) to perform at The Outlaw Roadshow showcase at SxSW 2013 in Austin, TX.
"With the delivery of lyrics that leap from the page, Stenson's an artist who's instantly arresting. Everything I heard was worth repeat listening." Ryan Spaulding -- RSLBlog.com
"The last time I witnessed someone with his kind of presence and voice, one that leaped out beyond the speakers and pulled me in, was when I worked with Garth Brooks. He has it man." Don Was about Tyler Stenson
With his national name growing, Stenson was named Reverb Nation’s Breaking Artist in 2013 and has been invited to open for LeAnn Rimes, Chris Isaak, John Popper, Marc Cohn, Matisyahu, Fuel, Guster (and many others). He has also landed original songs on two separate national Chevrolet commercials, as well as, a handful of others placed in internationally televised shows.
