Gearing Up for Fall

Summer’s been absolutely fantastic. I’ve been able get into a bit of a rhythm with life, which has been nice and allowed me more free time to enjoy family, friends and of course, music. I’ve been able to experience ZZ Top and Robert Randolph and the Family Band live and am looking forward to Gov’t Mule this Saturday. Watching all of these fantastic musicians has done nothing but further my desire to get back out and play some shows.

With the Summer closing and Fall right around the corner, I’ve directed my attention to writing and recording the next Trio album as well as booking shows. Writing for me has always been quick and in spurts, so I hope to hit a creative streak and pump out some tunes in a short amount of time. I’ve also been able to acquire some nice microphones (Blue makes ridiculously fantastic mics) that will hopefully improve the quality of my recordings. I’m pretty excited with how things have gone so far. The first single, “Doctor’s Orders”, has already been sent off to Apple Music, Spotify and others for approval. It should go live in the next day or so.

Booking has begun as I’m starting to get a Fall/Winter 2016 Press Kit together and sent out to various venues around Dayton. I hope to get a handful of shows nailed down and announced within the next month or so. I miss playing for crowds and definitely look forward to getting back to it here shortly. As always, if you’re interested in me playing your venue or a venue you like, let me know or give them a referral. I hope to see you guys out in the music scene soon!


The Trio and Hart take on Oscar’s

Friday, June 10th, will mark the first time the Tyler Cochran Trio has played a concert in 2016. After spending the first part of 2016 completing a Bachelor’s degree, planning a wedding, buying a house and starting a career, Tyler is now ready to get back in the Dayton music scene. And what better way to make a comeback than double billing with the one and only Doug Hart Band.

Doug is legendary in the Dayton music scene and considered one of the best guitar players in the Dayton area. This will be the first time that Doug and Tyler have been on a bill together, and they plan on shaking the rafters at Oscar’s. This will also be the first time the Trio has played at Oscar’s Bar & Grill, which is located in Tyler’s hometown of Vandalia.

For the setlist, Tyler has a variety of songs that are all in the Trio’s wheelhouse. Smooth blues tunes, searing rock numbers, sprinkles of pop songs, some back catalog Broken Lights songs, and of course new Trio material all await patrons of Oscar’s on June 10th. The Trio plans on starting the night off with aggressive spark and letting the Doug Hart Band keep the blaze going.

The Tyler Cochran Trio goes on at 9pm, followed by the Doug Hart Band. Oscar’s Bar & Grill is located at  320 N. Dixie Dr. Vandalia, OH 45377. Cover charge is $5 at the door.
