Tyler Jackson is a true musical talent. Although he has worked as a professional musician on many instruments, he is perhaps best known for being the bassist for country music legend Ray Price since 2006.
When Jackson was just 8 years old, he began singing in a nationally known touring boys choir. Although he enjoyed singing, after a few years he was ready to take his musical gift and focus it in a different direction. At the age of 11 he began studying multiple stringed instruments under the tutelage of Buddy Griffin, who taught him ukulele, tenor banjo, and eventually electric bass. He quickly gained fame as a virtuosic tenor banjoist which allowed him to appear on numerous recordings and perform around the country on the instrument. By the time Jackson was entering high school he was ready to focus his attention on the double bass. Studying both classical and jazz, he quickly discovered that playing double bass was something he wanted to make a career of.
Tyler studied double bass at the University of North Texas under Lynn Seaton. With the help of Seaton he began to fine-tune his skills as a professional bassist. When he wasn't in school practicing, he was hard at work playing gigs across the DFW metroplex. It was during this period that Tyler was asked to work for Ray Price and the Cherokee Cowboys. Traveling with “The Chief” took Jackson all over the world and gave him the chance to play countless venues from the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, to the legendary Massy Hall in Toronto, to Radio City music hall in New York, FarmAid, Austin City Limits Live and so on. In 2007-09 Ray Price teamed up with Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard to form the very successful “Last of the Breed” tour. Jackson can be seen on A&E's “Last of the Breed” DVD and heard on the live CD as well.
One thing Tyler is known for is getting the job done, no matter what style of music he plays. Besides his work with Ray Price, Tyler has worked for many well known artists spanning several genres including Earl Klugh, Jim Cullum, and Dale Watson just to name a few.
Quote from Artist:
I've been unhappy with how other amps can color my upright's tone in a negative way. With the GB shuttle 6.0 combo, the sound is so natural it literally feels like there's just a giant volume knob on the back of my bass. The combination of superb tone, durable construction, and extreme portability make this combo the perfect choice for me. I love it!
