Tyler Fortier is a hard-working man who has put it all on the line for his passion, packing all of his belongings into a 10 x 10 storage unit and guerrilla-touring to play solo gigs up and down the West Coast. He has taken the plunge into full-time musicianship, and it's starting to pay off in a big way. For Fortier (pronounced for-teer), it seems no other way will do. Take Brett Dennen, mix it with just a touch of Ryan Adams, and push the whole thing into a jug-band aesthetic, but with more classically trained musicianship -- that's Fortier. He has a hangdog face, big eyes, a firm handshake, a voice like a blanket, and his guitar-playing sounds like it could be twanging and strumming to the scenes of a period piece directed by David Lynch. His awareness of the modern musician's plights is precisely why his trajectory continues to rise. And though he claims to be making baby steps, it's more like he's on the verge of a quantum leap.
