While recognition is growing in America – where he has been opening shows for Dwight Yoakam, and Rolling Stone featured him as one of the ’10 New Country Artists You Need To Know’ – it is somewhat surprising there are no plans to release the debut there yet.
Instead, it has been picked up initially for UK audiences, after Tyson signed to Clubhouse Records a year ago and they released the American EPs as a joint package.
“I didn’t know much about releasing music over there (UK), and then we went and toured on it and the tour went really, really well and I ended up signing with them for this record too,” he says.
“It’s really, really cool, but it’s kind of weird, because it’s releasing over there, but we don’t have plans for releasing it over here yet. I’m shopping it to a few different labels here right now, so everything’s I IHIH air with that. But, it’s amazing. I’m so honoured with all the support I’ve gotten over there. I never would have imagined this would have been the route I’d be taking, it’s cool.’
