As it was explained to me by Tyler himself, ‘The Ditch Digger’ is a sort of preamble, an introduction to, and statement of, who he is and what he’s about in song form for those who don’t know him personally. It’s my favorite song he’s written, and I’m happy to finally be able to share a finished version with you. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Tyler Lyle is one of the very best young songwriters out there right now, and he just seems to be getting better and better.
Get familiar with Tyler and his music over on Bandcamp, including an advance listen of his tremendous new EP (from which ‘The Ditch Digger’ comes), Cave Art. I know jumping the gun a bit, but I think 2014 is going to be a very good year for Mr. Lyle. Enjoy.
