Tyler Shaw in Guelph just weeks after dropping new album

River Run Centre brings star power to the stage

GUELPH, ON October 12, 2018 – Tyler Shaw’s sophomore album dropped September 28 and singles released from Intuition are already making a splash with songs like Cautious and With You. His Magic Music Now Series show at River Run Centre on Friday, October 26 at 8 pm is bound to give fans a chance to sink their teeth into his new album, while still giving them a taste of his biggest hits.

Despite rising to star status with hits that consistently climb the charts, for Tyler Shaw, the success of a song is measured by how readily his growing audience can find their own experiences reflected in his music.

“I want to make music that’s relatable—the kind of songs that make you say ‘that’s exactly what I’m feeling right now.’ If people can make that personal connection, immediately, I’ve done my job.”

These are humble words for the 25-year-old with numerous accolades behind his name. This includes a Much Music Video Award nomination for Video of the Year in 2013, just one year after his debut single “Kiss Goodnight,” a Juno nod for Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2014, and singles that hit the charts so quickly they go Platinum.

Shaw’s early successes saw him performing with artists like Shawn Mendes and Alessia Cara, and he joined Selena Gomez on her Canadian leg of the Revival World Tour in 2016.

Special guests and rising Canadian pop-music stars Kayla Diamond and Alx Veliz join Tyler Shaw for his performance at the River Run Centre. Diamond layers her bluesy vocals over driving beats and Alx Veliz is best known for his unique sound that combines an electrifying, synth-driven pop with Latin rhythm.
