Tyler & Ryan Falcoa
Brother pop duo “Tyler and Ryan” are making their mark in the music industry, quickly becoming known for their unique sound and originality.
The New England natives, from Bristol, Rhode Island grew up performing in local bars and open mic nights. After a severe football injury left him unable to play, Tyler, the older of the two, began a classic rock cover band with Ryan. Shortly after, the brother’s experienced a life-threatening house fire. This inspired them to start writing music to better cope with their anxiety.
The brothers went on to create their YouTube channel in 2010. In time, “Tyler & Ryan” became known in the YouTube community for their original takes on Top 40 music. In 2014, “Tyler & Ryan” won Ryan Seacrest’s online competition “Best Cover of All About That Bass” with their rendition of the song. They later got an opportunity to work with notable artists Charlie Puth and Ludacris on Ryan Seacrest’s YouTube Original TV series “Best.Cover.Ever”. In 2016, “Tyler & Ryan” opened up for Ingrid Michaelson, Shaggy and One Republic at the Mix 104.1 “Mixfest” in Boston, performing for 50,000 people, their biggest crowd yet.
In 2017 they continued to release weekly cover videos to grow their audience. In 2018, they released seven singles, accumulating over 2 million streams just on Spotify alone. The “Tyler & Ryan” fan base has driven the brothers to over 160,000 Subscribers on YouTube, and a combined 30 million views. This year, the brothers plan on releasing more singles than ever, rebranding themselves to fit their sound: retro & real.
