Having co-written nearly a dozen radio hits, winning 2 GRAMMY Awards and 10 years of touring under his belt, former Audio Adrenaline guitarist/songwriter Tyler Burkum has a solid base on which to build a successful solo career.  Burkum is doing just that with the release of his debut solo EP, adequately titled Demo LP, which is available now on iTunes. 
 
In his first solo outing, Burkum offers a small taste of what is to come with a collection of intimate, heartfelt and homesick narratives written during the last year of touring with Audio Adrenaline.  He recorded in hotels, parks, or any area that was immediately available.
 
“The bulk of the EP was me and a guitar with a laptop and a borrowed microphone,” shares Burkum. “It’s only a demo but I wanted to get it out there and show a more personal side [of my music].”
 
For something he downplays as ‘only a demo,’ the music ebbs and flows, carrying the listener along on a strikingly mature and self-actualized journey—a journey that provides poignant, quiet moments, and a fair share of insight into the ‘family photo album’.
 
Having joined Audio Adrenaline at the tender age of 17, Burkum holds a ‘dream come true’ musical story.  He joined Audio Adrenaline in 1997, which enabled Burkum to contribute to the recording of the GRAMMY nominated and Dove Award winning album Some Kind of Zombie.   With Burkum’s new sound added to the band, they went on to release three more highly successful and award winning albums until the band’s retirement in 2007. 
 
In addition to his contributions to Audio Adrenaline, Burkum has also contributed his talents by playing guitar and touring with Mat Kearney (Columbia Records) who has opened for such noted acts as John Mayer and Sheryl Crow.
