“an arsenal full of technique and joy.” – The New York Times
Known for its legendary catalog, including the early albums of Elvis Presley, Sun Studios has left its mark on the history of rock music. In 2005, Tyler Hilton was cast to play the legendary rock star in the blockbuster biopic, Walk The Line. Now Tyler has teamed up with the inimitable string trio Hot Club of Cowtown, bringing Elvis’s hits from the Sun Studio years to life on stage.
California’s Tyler Hilton started writing and recording at an early age. With his raspy, soulful voice, his personal lyrics and laid-back, catchy melodies, Hilton’s debut album The Tracks of… hit the Billboard Top 40 charts and led to collaborations with Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Joe Cocker among others. But it was his turn as Elvis Presley in the Oscar-winning Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line and subsequent Grammy-winning soundtrack that launched a surprising acting career.
Since its beginnings in the late 1990s, the Hot Club of Cowtown’s star has continued to rise. Its reputation for jaw-dropping virtuosity and unforgettable live shows has become the band’s global brand. Lauded for its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation” (The Times, London), the Hot Club has always woven a combination of seemingly disparate styles together to its own magical effect, setting up camp “at that crossroads where country meets jazz and chases the blues away” (The Independent), remaining “conscious always that above all else, the music is for dancing and an old-fashioned good time” (New York Times).
The Hot Club of Cowtown has toured extensively worldwide for over twenty years, both on its own and with artists including Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Gatemouth Brown, the Avett Brothers, Roxy Music, and others. Festivals/career highlights include the grand opening of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, and being inducted into the Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame.
