Tyler Cody is a 20 year-old actor, musician, songwriter, and Elvis Tribute Artist. Born and raised in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Tyler was raised by his parents until he was 9 years old, after which he went to live with his grandparents. When he first moved in with them, he quickly realized that they rarely listened to music; however, they did have a CD player and 2 CDs: The Beatles #1 and Elvis #1. It was the music from these 2 CDs that Tyler first heard that would change his life. He started singing, and by age 13 his grandma had bought him a guitar. Throughout high school Tyler played bass guitar in a few bands, expanding his musical range; but it was in his grad year that he was asked to join the school R&B band. Tyler accepted and started singing. Tyler's first time singing Elvis publicly was at his school with the R&B band. Soon after, he heard about the Penticton Elvis Festival, and then made his way there to compete. That is when things really started to take off for Tyler.
Since then, he has competed in Penticton for four years in a row, and has performed at multiple other festivals, bars and venues. He graduated from the Film Acting program at Vancouver Film School and has been in multiple commercials, TV shows and plays.
From here on, Tyler cannot imagine a future in which he isn't performing. Dedicated to the arts, Tyler is constantly trying to find new ways of intermingling his passions together in hopes of giving his show that extra edge. Tyler's goal for the new year is to release a demo of all original music whilst still working on his Elvis shows. That's not all though: there many other plans in the works, and unforeseen opportunities constantly popping up. It's not just Tyler's shows that are a wild ride--it's his whole life!
