TYLER JACOB

East coast born and bred, Tyler Jacob is a singer/songwriter who got his start in the industry after being discovered singing on the trains of NYC.

At the age of 5 years old, Tyler Jacob started singing and performing in school plays. Tyler says that “I’ve always wanted to sing. It was a natural thing for me.” His family recalls little Tyler putting on shows in the family living room.

“I don’t come from a family of singers. I’m the only one.” 

But it wasn’t until his freshmen year in high school did he realize others thought he had a gift, when he was accidentally placed in a choir class. “The choir teacher asked me to sing, so she could classify my voice.” The rest is history. After the choir teacher heard Tyler’s voice, she had him transferred to Creative Arts High School (CAHS) in Camden, New Jersey.

Tyler’s passion to sing, write and perform his own music, in English and Spanish, pushed him after he graduated from CAHS to move to the big Apple to pursue his singing career. Since then he has gone on to win numerous talent shows , performed on many stages across the US, opened up for Grammy Award winner, Brandy Norwood, and logged studio time with Carvin & Ivan (Chris Brown, Musiq Soulchild, Mario), and Andrea Martin (Leona Lewis, Monica, Mary J. Blige).  

Tyler credits artists like Brandy, Eryka Badu, Lauryn Hill, Aaliyah, Jon B, Marc Anthony, Tank, Maxwell, as some of his influences.
