Blues Soul, Jazz Mentality & Rock Attitude


The Tyler Cochran Trio sets out to combine the soul of the blues, mentality of jazz and attitude of rock into an experience that leaves you humming their tunes long after the music has stopped. Hailing from the Gem City of Dayton, Ohio the Tyler Cochran Trio began as a side project in 2014 and has evolved into Tyler’s main endeavor. The Trio consists of vocalist & guitarist Tyler Cochran, bassist Matt Rookard and drummer Zach Grove, all of whom have been playing together on & off since high school. 

The band’s sound harks back to the power trios of yesteryear while keeping things fresh with catchy choruses and engaging live shows. Tyler’s guitar work is always on full display and complemented perfectly by the subsonic soundscapes of Matt and pocket grooves of Zach. Headlining events such as the Vandalia Star Spangled Celebration in 2015 & 2019 and playing many smaller venues throughout southwest Ohio, the Trio has put together a live show that is sure to thrill audiences big and small. 

They have also put out a handful of demos recorded in Tyler’s basement studio available on all major streaming platforms including Spotify and Apple Music. The Trio plans on recording their first professional EP in Nashville in 2020. Be on the lookout for future tour dates and music releases!
