Tyler Burkum (@tylerburkum) is an internationally touring and studio
guitarist (Mat Kearney, Leagues, The Cactus Blossoms, Ingrid Michaelson...
just to name a few) He’s a brilliant composer/songwriter too… but I didn’t
interview him because of all that nonsense. I played with Tyler a few
months back and as soon as we got to talking, I knew that I needed to sit
down one-on-one over beers and chat. The way this guy approaches life and
thinks about things will inspire you to want to be more open to what life
has to offer even if you’re not a musician.
In this episode we talk about:
-Being cool with not being the right person for every gig
-Realizing that being present in the moment is more important than anything
-Tyler’s experience being picked up at 17 to go on a rock tour
-Overseas tattoo stories
-The enjoyment of traveling with music and the education of traveling the
world. How it changes the way you view life and culture
-Deciding to be someone who says yes
-Letting your mind remind your heart to ease it’s insecurities.
-the pointlessness of being competitive in music
-Producing yourself: The need to accept who you are and who you’re not. The
importance of knowing what you’re NOT good at.
-What ’success’ means to Tyler
-Using social media as a musician
-Advice Tyler would give to his past self that may just change your life.

I’m so thankful that I don’t have to deal with sponsors.
Otherwise, I would have to tell you to visit Guinness’ website HERE
Otherwise, I’d be inclined to tell you that Guinness Draft (with it’s
distinctive dark amber body and rich creamy head) is possibly God’s
greatest gift to mankind and is the sole reason I’m thankful for being
alive after it’s birth in 1759.
I’d also have to recommend that you to hire Narrate Films for your next
video/film/music-video/photo booth/wedding photography/any photography
needs and to visit their website HERE.
