While the country collectively sighs in a mixture of terror and resignation at its own fate, leave it to Nashville-based guitarist and composer William Tyler to remind us that there can still be beauty in this world. Today, that beauty comes in the form of Tyler’s new song “Kingdom of Jones”, an all-acoustic instrumental that manages to both ease the soul and thrill the mind.
One of the most exciting solo guitarists in the game, Tyler has a way of weaving together melodies to form a rich tapestry that can’t possibly be examined in full on first listen. “Kingdom of Jones” is the kind of song that warrants and compels repeated plays. It will appear on Tyler’s new album Modern Country, due out June 3rd via Merge Records.
