Tyller Gummersall – Long Ride Home

on
​Hailing from Colorado, singer-songwriter Tyller Gummersall recently released his fourth album, Long Ride Home. The
album, which was recorded at The Zone Studio and engineered by Pat
Manske, was produced by the legendary Lloyd Maines. In addition to
Maines and Manske (both also play on the record), Long Ride Home
features Gary Cook [flatpicking guitar], Dennis Ludiker [fiddle], and
Riley Osbourne [keys] whose talented musicianship brings the songs to
life.

The eleven track collection’s songs were solely penned by
Gummersall and throughout the album, one can clearly flesh out a picture
of who he is: a proud of his roots country gentleman, and an old
musical soul who hasn’t forgotten the beloved traditional sounds of the
genre.

The album kicks off with the hummable melody of “This
House” which focuses on what’s left “with you gone.” From there,
Gummersall’s roots show on the shuffling “Rocky Mountain Man” where he
sings “Well I’m not from the west coast and I ain’t from the
southern plains/They don’t like my hat out in Nashville/I guess the
cowboy really did ride away”
and the stomping, fiddle driven
“Country Boy.” He presents life lessons learned in the poignant and
touching “Better Than You Found It” and is reflective and contemplative
in the title track.

Gummersall also addresses the many sides of
love on a quartet of songs, which feature the gorgeous harmonies of Kate
Willyard blending with his own warm vocals. There’s getting to know
someone on the gentle, “Sing You A Song,” yearning on “Kiss Me,” trying
to forget old lovers on “Ghosts” (“Can you love me without gettin’ your heart broken?/If you can then I’ll forever owe you mine”), and questioning whether one is worthy of another on “Good Enough.”

Over
the past year, and particularly the past six months, we have seen that
country listeners are craving a little less of what’s been predominant
and a lot more of what’s traditional. Gummersall’s album should satisfy
that craving nicely, finding a home in your music collection, on your
playlist and hopefully even on the radio.
