On Wednesday, June 17th, 2009, I had the pleasure of speaking with Universal recording artist Tyrone Wells (who looks strikingly like Scooter Ward from Cold in the above photo), two days before he’s set to play The Fillmore at Irving Plaza as direct support to Better Than Ezra.

The conversation occurred as the band was on their way to Philadelphia to play The Trocadero Theatre. If you enjoy bands like Better Than Ezra, Matchbox Twenty, and Vertical Horizon, take a listen to Tyrone Wells.

In the ten minute conversation, we discussed the current tour with Better Than Ezra. The tour is drawing well. Most shows are at or near capacity. We went on to talk about other shows he’s played in New York City at Sin-e, Knitting Factory, and the Highline Ballroom. We also talk about his feelings on Universal.

I’ve listened to both his Universal records, as well as his indie releases. Take a listen. You might be pleasantly surprised. You can’t be angry all the time.

    You’re right. If you didn’t put a number under the photo I would have thought it was Scooter. Not into this type of music.

    Haha! Scooter all the way, only Tyrone is taller. I was at the Highline Ballroom. I was given tix by a friend. The difference between this guy and Scooter is Tyrone is like 7’4.

    Better Than Ezra is still around? The last I heard was Desperately Wanting or something like that. They’re probably one of those bands that’s established such a core following that they can tour forever. I owned Deluxe.

    The music isn’t my taste but this guy sounds genuine. I’d like to know what Universal paid him on tht album buyout.

    I understand where you’re going with this but what differentiates this artist from the millions that came before and the millions that will come after.

    Is his voice unique? No.

    Songwriting? No.

    The bass player looks so disinterested in that video it’s funny.

    I heard one of his songs in some movie trailer.

    I wouldn’t say he’s the man, polaroidgrl.

    All of you should head over to the Alice In Chains article.
