From charting multiple times on the Indigenous Music Countdown, and having received the 2018 SIGA Indigenous Artist Development Bursary at the SCMAs, LJ Tyson is a musician that has not gone unnoticed. Born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, LJ Tyson has played with acts such as Bif Naked and Hawksley Workman, and has made a name for himself as both an artist and songwriter. In 2017, he was commissioned to write a song for the City of Prince Albert. His song, Locals, was written to highlight the city’s local culture.
With a new wave of music coming soon, LJ Tyson released his debut single, Hide, the first off of his new EP, Brando, which is set to drop in 2019. An usual yet clever release with both a country and pop version released simultaneously, Hide is sure to please both old and new fans alike.
