Artist Spotlight: Tylan

Out folk singer/songwriter Tylan has dropped her last name to embark on a new solo venture with the release of her upcoming album One True Thing, set to be released on June 18. Previously the frontwoman of acclaimed folk-pop quartet Girlyman, which has released five studio albums and spent a decade on the road, Tylan says to her fans, "I'd like to share more of my work with you, and to explore a sound that's a little more raw and exposed."

Having been compared by critics to folk icons Willie Nelson and Janis Ian, Tylan is setting out to make a lasting impression on the folk music industry. The album's single, Already Fine, features Amy Ray from The Indigo Girls and was premiered on American Songwriter.
