The life & times of a ballad monger

The Ballad monger from Wolverhampton, and former lead singer of the Dogs D'Amour, Tyla will be appearing on the Livestage on Saturday 3rd at approximately 1.30
Tyla is a huge fan of Charles Bukowski, and many of his lyrics, delivered with an impelling throaty rasp, are tinged with humorous irony and pathos, reflecting Bukowski's prosaic style.
Tyla is also an accomplished artist, and his distinctive artwork graced the covers of all the Dogs D'Amour albums and singles. Tyla's artistic style has evolved with every release, transitioning from pure comic strip caricatures to elegant semi-abstract depictions in pastel and watercolour.
