After two long years since John Tyler’s debut album, “The Good Side of Things”, he is finally back with his new EP and documentary entitled “Free Spirit”.

Free Spirit is a soulful, yet relaxing four-song collection highlighting his musicality and inspired by his desire to take a step back and appreciate life. John made this relaxing EP because he was overwhelmed with the fast-forward nature of his life, the good and the bad. He describes this EP as “from sunrise to sunset”.    

For the past two years, 21-year-old, John has been on a fast track through curating and producing three Love Groove Music Festivals highlighting over 80 artists, playing in the 2021 Firefly Festival, and working on projects for Under Armour, Visit Baltimore, Maryland Public Television, and Charm TV.  

It is his hope that this EP serves as a relaxing tool for those who are facing anxiety and constantly in motion.  Join John as he showcases this music and documentary before the world along with announcements and additional music videos. 

Sponsors: Love Groove Entertainment & B. Willow
