Geoff Tyson – An Afternoon with the Emperor of Sound
by Melinda King - City Spy Magazine
"Tyson got his start in music as a kid in the bay area of California. His mom, like most moms, shuttled her kid each week to his piano lesson, but once the teen years hit, all hopes of having a classic pianist in the family were dashed. Guitar was the future for young Geoff. Tyson couldn’t get enough of playing and would hang around after his guitar lesson to have extra jam time with his guitar teacher (just some dude who gave lessons in Berkeley…that “dude” being Joe Satriani.) Tyson soon hit the local music scene with his band T-Ride and damn, what a time and place to be alive."
Geoff Tyson puts “SPOTLIGHT” on depression
by Raymond Johnston - PRAGUE.TV
The song is both a conduit for his grief and message about the reality of sadness and isolation experienced by artists in the entertainment industry, he added.
“After their suicides, I reflected on my own battles with depression. Its dark shadows can turn what should be a happy life lived in the spotlight, while achieving artistic success, into a spiral of desperation,” Tyson said.
