The free-spiritedness and lofty, cloud-like energy radiating from Tyler T.’s album, A World To Wonder, is something both magnetic and captivating. The solo artist is a self-described “one-man band,” and he brings to mind a combination of Keller Williams and Xavier Rudd. Looping techniques and the didgeridoo are at the center of Tyler’s being, with a slew of other instruments finding their way onto A World To Wander. A banjo, triangle, synthesizer, trumpet, fiddle, electric and acoustic guitar and organ are a few of the toys unleashed by the multi-talented Tyler T. and his studio friends. The raspy voice of the 23-year-old Texan is an interestingly smooth accent to this organic, funky and free trip.
