About

You could call Cody Tyler & Gypsy Convoy “red dirt country,” but the rocky soil in coal country and the rust belt, where his family has been rooted for centuries, is a few shades darker. The songs on the band's award-winning debut album, Stare Your Demons Down, are the product of Cody's musings while hunting deep in the Pennsylvania wilderness. At 29years old, his musical journey has just begun, but his yearning to travel the open road with his songs written from his tree stand have already taken him across the United States as a solo artist. 

 

Drawing heavy influence from the likes of Waylon Jennings, The Allman Brothers Band, The Steel Woods, Sturgill Simpson, and more, Cody's voice and guitar sport a road-tested sound along with the seasoned musicians that make up Gypsy Convoy.

 

Cody Tyler & Gypsy Convoy’s debut album, Stare Your Demons Down, was recorded at Think Loud Studios in York, PA, and Full Tilt Productions in Mechanicsburg, PA. It was mastered by Grammy winner Pete Lyman (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Tyler Childers) at Infrasonic Mastering in Nashville, TN. Cody describes the album’s sound as “dusty like the coal mines and rusty like the steel mills. It’s soulful and bluesy country for folks that want to kick up their boots.”

 

Cody Tyler & Gypsy Convoy are the winners of the 2024 I-105 WIOV Showdown in the Park, securing an opening slot at the 2024 I-105 Fall Fest, to be held at Overlook Park in Lancaster, PA this October. In 2023, the Central Pennsylvania Music Hall of Fame awarded the band with Album of the Year and Best Country Band at the 4th Annual Central Pennsylvania Music Awards at the Hershey Theatre in Hershey, PA. They were nominated for the second year in a row for Best Country Band in 2024. In 2019, Cody was the runner-up in the Tumbleweed Country Music Festival Rising Star Talent Search, which featured over 300 country music artists from the US and Canada. In 2017, he was a Top 150 vocalist for Season 14 of NBC’s The Voice, reaching the executive producer callback auditions in Los Angeles.

 

Nick & Joel at KVOK Radio in Oklahoma had this to say about the band’s song “Eagle Tattoo,” an ode to Cody’s ancestors and his brother, who have and are currently serving in the US military: “It sure is nice when a song is actually about something. We give it a 9/10. It has a great message and Cody‘s lyrics paint the picture really well through the whole song.”

"Well-crafted melodies and relatable words, all driven home by Cody’s emphatic voice and swagger"

Professor Jim Price, PA Musician Magazine
