With his upcoming record, Ty Baynton offers up a tight set of rock-fueled country songs custom cut for his high-energy live show and signature brand of ‘stadium-sized’ vocals.
Scheduled for release in February 2019, Rough Around The Edges, the record steps out lyrically and sonically from the 29-year-old, Waterdown, Ontario-based singer/songwriter’s past efforts. That’s a product of the fact that his vision for the record was forged primarily during the past four years on the road. You’ll still hear echoes of Baynton’s long time influences like Tom Petty and Garth Brooks, but, he says: “Live, you inherently end up playing things differently over time. I was sitting back after a show once and realized that the band and I actually play rock, but I just happen to have a very country voice. So, going into this record I dug into what really gets me going musically, and a lot of it was 90’s rock; very specifically pop/punk like Gob and Sum 41.”
Over time Baynton’s done countless shows on his own and with his live band, shared the stage with the likes of Gord Bamford, Tim Hicks, Blake Shelton and many others, and performed at some of Canada’s biggest country festivals, including Boots & Hearts, the Manitoulin Country Fest and a variety of rodeos.
