Tyler Ray Ward is an American independent singer, writer, producer and philanthropist.
Before Ward had an interest in music, he was focused on athletics. After graduating from high school, Ward enrolled at the United States Air Force Academy Preparatory School, where he played football. Ward's temperament was incompatible with military discipline, however, and he dropped out. After leaving the Air Force Academy, Ward was accepted into the University of Northern Colorado and started to write songs while seeking a journalism degree.
Ward has become a well known social media artist through his mix of covers and originals on youtube. Ward has successfully completed three worldwide headlining tours and has played shows with many mainstream artists including The Jonas Brothers and The Fray.
