I like to write songs that

speak to the innermost being of a person and music is a universal language that appeals to all the people of the world.” says, Tyris.

After several years of playing the organ for church, Tyris began honing his talents around Chicago. He then proceeded to show from Chicago Clubs to the international stage in countries like Korea, China, Hong Kong, India, The Philippines, and Singapore.

My Musical Journey

Be Led By Your Dreams

I pursued my dreams to be able to perform in many of the Jazz clubs in Chicago.  I then had my eyes set on playing overseas.  I have performed throughout Asia including Singapore, China, Hong Kong, S. Korea, and India.

Universal Language

When I first performed outside of  The U.S,  I was so nervous, but after hitting the first note, I quickly found out that music is a universal language with different rhythms and tempos but yet understood by all.

The Journey

Part of my aim as an artist is to take you on a musical journey.  I try my best to compose music that will speak directly to your heart as you listen.  And then perform it with passion and improvisation.
