ALBANY, NY - Warm_Toasty_Badge_JB2Concert / “Warm & Toasty” Donation Drive: Join Rhett Tyler’s Early Warning for a very special concert and donation drive to support the Albany based organization IPH (Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless). This progressive fusion-blues power trio features Rhett Tyler on guitar and lead vocals, James Kirk on bass and vocals, and Mike Piescki on drums. Join them as they embark on an intense musical journey stimulating mind and spirit with a house house rockin’ performance that propels modern blues-rock to the next level and beyond.

Guitarist and vocalist Rhett Tyler delivers the goods. Buddy Guy biographer Donald Wilcock wrote, “Rhett is not just proficient throughout the spectrum of today’s blues, he’s a universal master of all… You gotta hear him live!” and Paul Hill of Your Hometowne describes Rhett’s performance as “Musical lightening with authority!

Rhett Electric 1Rhett Tyler has performed at many of the capital district’s premier venues including The Egg at Empire State Plaza when he shared billing with veteran Chicago bluesman Lonnie Brooks, and more recently at The Palace Theater when he shared the bill with blues legend B.B. King (April 17, 2014).

Tyler, now an Albany resident, was born in San Antonio, TX, and spent his youth in the mid west listening to and learning about music and the blues. His career spans over forty years of innovative music, blending genres and pushing the boundaries of modern blues. Rhett has independently recorded eight CDs including his latest effort, entitled “The Rhythm, The Power, The Blue” (2013). Following a decade long near fatal battle with Lyme disease this virtuoso guitarist has returned to the stage with a renewed appreciation for life and direction of purpose and was honored in 2011 with an induction into the Blues Hall of Fame as Master Blues Artist.

The IPH has addressed the needs of the homeless and low-income community by providing a continuum of services to encourage self-sufficiency, empowerment, and stability since 1984. For more information visit: InterfaithPartnership.com
