Tyler Carson has discovered a new genre for the violin: Living Music.


Growing up trained as a classical violinist (professional symphony soloist age 13, first violin Canadian National Youth Orchestra) and a folk 'fiddler’ simultaneously (MainStage folk festivals, opening for Brooks&Dunn, The Chieftains and Irish Rovers), Tyler was always headed in a unique direction. 


The Sound of Sedona embodies the rebirth of this musicians life who toured to multiple continents in person and on TV as a child star and culminated as a featured performer on the Jerry Lewis Telethon between Savion Glover and Jason Alexander at age 16.


As an adult and matured artist Tyler’s music constantly seeks to redefine expectation, "I've never felt that music came from me; it always felt like it came through me."  A musical turning point came for Tyler when he traveled to India in February 2013. He was asked to perform a solo violin performance in Auroville ‘International City of Peace' in south east India. The performance occurred at the end of a deep spiritual process and graduate project as an Integrative Energy Healer.


Tyler was blessed to have the performance recorded and featured on Auroville radio. The first performance of it’s kind, it became his debut solo album "Living Violin". Since then a synergy has followed his musical exploration as a solo violinist. Meditation practices have opened a direct heart centric musical expression enhanced by technique derived through tai-chi and qi-gong coached by local Master Rob Mann and world renowned Master George Xu.

The result of all the process synthesized in his playing, it is often said that he and his instrument vibrate together as one. In performance and connected heart to heart with an audience, his art can only be described as Living

Absolutely astounding! 🦋

Last night was amazing it was exactly what I needed. Like I said I have been in this iceberg of grief and now I am thawing, feeling all aspects of life again. Listening to your music I put my arms up in Thanksgiving for all the good things in my life.
