Interview with Universal Recording Artist Tyrone Wells
By: Andrew Bilach
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.
