Tyler Jacob's voice resonates a rich quality that comes off genuine in his songs.
James Dinh, MTV News Freelance Journalist
Tyler Jacob is a superstar in every sense of the word. The texture of his voice sounds gritty over a hip hop beat, smooth over a R&B instrumental and crossover enough for Pop radio. Right now, it isnt about if he will be a superstar in this music industry; It is all about when!
- Kemp, Radio Personality (Kempire Radio)
That was really nice. That was beautiful.
Meelah Williams of R&B Group, 702 response to Tyler Jacob's Cry No More
There are many singers trying to make it in the music business. But a voice this special only comes along once in a lifetime. It has been a long journey from Tyler Jacob's days of growing up in Camden, New Jersey. However, he is ready to take his rightful place as one of the music industry's most gifted and versatile vocalists.
At the age of 5 years old, Tyler Jacob started singing and performing in school plays. Tyler says that "I've always wanted to sing. It was a natural thing for me." His family recalls little Tyler putting on shows in the family living room. "I dont come from a family of singers. I'm the only one."
But it wasn't until his freshmen year in high school did he realize others thought he had a gift, when he was accidentally placed in a choir class. "The choir teacher asked me to sing, so she could classify my voice." The rest is history. After the choir teacher heard Tyler's voice, she had him transferred to Creative Arts High School in Camden, New Jersey.
Tyler's passion to sing, write and perform his own music, in English and Spanish, pushed him after he graduated from CAHS. He has gone on to win numerous talent shows including most recently, Afternoon of the Arts Showcase. Tyler Jacob has also been featured on some of the hottest blogs including MusicXclusives.com, SingersRoom.com, Kiddunot.com, YouKnowIGotSoul.com, YourMusicMyWorld.com, TrueExclusives.com and countless others within the United States and Europe. The radio community also has embraced Tyler Jacob's music (Urban Latino Radio, WKRB 90.3 FM, Kempire Radio). And he has graced some of NYC's most legendary stages, including The Village Underground and BB Kings.
Tyler credits artists like Kim Burrell, Carl Thomas, Brandy, Tonex, Marc Anthony, Tank, Maxwell, Luther Vandross, Musiq Soulchild and Raheem DeVaughn as influences of his sound.
In the Fall of 2010, Tyler Jacob released his first promotional single, Cry No More; followed by his first official single release, titled, Face II Face. Tyler Jacob says, "I want people to connect to the stories in my songs and ultimately learn something from them. I know I have."
