PRESS RELEASE - "The Montana Kid"

Tyler Gilbert releases new sound with 
his 4th studio album “The Montana Kid” 

Tyler Gilbert will release his 4th studio album… “The Montana Kid” on May 2nd on indie label Farmageddon Sound. The album has been described by Gilbert as a new sound for him, as he leans more toward twangy country rock, which is clearly evident on the single “Stains”. “The Montana Kid” is Gilbert ‘s first full length of all new material since 2013’s “OK Murphy”. 

“The Montana Kid” will be supported by an extensive Canada/ USA tour, including stops at major events such as the Ohio State Fair, Sound of Music Festival, Bow Valley Jamboree, Living Sky Music & Food Festival and the World Women’s Curling Tournament. 

Produced by Justin Bender (Third Ion, Into Eternity), the album features high profile musicians such as Mike Young (Devin Townsend Band, The Matinee), Aaron Edgar (Drumeo, Third Ion), Val Halla, Glenn Sutter, and Ian Cameron. The album was funded in part by Creative Saskatchewan’s recording production grant and an IndieGoGo fundraising campaign.
