					Award Winning Singer-Songwriter Releases His Seventh Album to be Used as a
Musical Portfolio in the Music City
Portland, Oregon’s standout singer-songwriter, Tyler Stenson releases his seventh album
“Bittersweet Parade” to be used as a portfolio of his musical work for his move to The Music
City – Nashville, TN.
Nashville, TN (Vocus) May 23, 2010 -- The Northwest remembers Tyler Stenson as the two-time Portland
Songwriters Association Performing Songwriter of the Year (2007 and 2008) and a recent nominee for the Best
Male Artist at the 2009 Portland Music Awards. As for 2010, they’ll long remember his capacity crowd
performance at Lola’s Room at the Crystal Ballroom introducing his seventh studio album, Bittersweet Parade,
just moments before moving to Nashville, TN to pursue his career as a professional singer-songwriter.

 During his final weeks in Portland, Stenson recorded a stellar new album that will be the cornerstone of his
Nashville songwriting portfolio. Recorded at 8 Ball Studio with Portland’s locally beloved Rob Stroup, the record
is a storyteller’s journey in an “elegant folk” format. Autobiographical at its core, Stenson self produced
Bittersweet Parade, a historically toned celebration of life and the brooding dynamics that accompany the human
existence.

 Chalk-full of gripping lyrics, poignant vocals and unforgettable acoustic melodies, the record’s minimalist
singer-songwriter approach showcases Stenson as a magnetically authentic solo artist in an age of typical
over-production and stale studio glitz.

 From start to finish, Bittersweet Parade is bursting with evidence of Stenson’s unique ability to craft elegant
songs with substance. Inspired by a Cormac McCarthy novel, The Road is the record’s single – a sparkling lullaby
that praises a would-be lover while Great Man’s Funeral pays sweet homage to db clay, a once great wallet
company that Stenson and his brother started in Portland years ago at the Portland Saturday Market. Concluding
the Bittersweet Parade is a majestic song about Wyoming – a tribute to Stenson’s place of birth and a scenic
anthem that has been recognized by the Governor of Wyoming as a candidate for this year’s Governor’s Art
Award.

 Critics have coined the 2010 release of Bittersweet Parade as Stenson’s strongest work to date and it could not
have come at a better time – moments before moving across the country to pursue his dream on the big stage of
Nashville, TN.

There will be many more albums in the future, but for now, Bittersweet Parade is a stunning representation of
Stenson’s accomplishments as a songwriter and a proud portfolio for his promising career in The Music City.

 Tyler Stenson is an award winning singer-songwriter from Portland, OR that is currently based in Nashville, TN.
As the pioneer of his genre “elegant folk” Stenson’s lyrical music is catching on internationally and attracting a
train of followers that find a piece of themselves in the sincerity of his words.
