Like many great Southern storytellers, singer-songwriter Tyler Childers has fallen in love with a place. The people, landmarks and legendary moments from his childhood home of Lawrence County, Kentucky, populate the 10 songs in his formidable debut, Purgatory, an album thats simultaneously modern and as ancient as the Appalachian Mountains in which events unfold. The album, co-produced by Grammy Award winners Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson, is a semiautobiographical sketch of Childers growth from wayward youth to happily married man, told in the tradition of a Southern gothic novel with a classic noir antihero who may just be irredeemable.
Purgatory is a chiaroscuro painting with darkness framing light in high relief. So much moonshine and cocaine. All played out on the large, colorful canvas of Eastern Kentucky. Childers had been searching for a certain sound for his debut album for years as he honed his craft, and was finding it elusive when his friend, drummer Miles Miller, introduced him to Simpson, the Grammy Award-winning musician and fellow Kentuckian. Childers sent Simpson a group of his songs, then went to visit him in Nashville.And he said, Theres this sound. I know what youre trying to get at, the mountain sound, Childers recalled. So I asked, What are you doing?
Intrigued, Simpson enlisted the aid of Ferguson, the Grammy Award winning sound engineer. They assembled a band that included multi-instrumentalists Stuart Duncan, Michael J. Henderson and Russ Pahl, bassist Michael Bub and Miller on drums, of course, and helped Childers make a debut album of consequence that announces an authentic new voice. I was writing an album about being in the mountains, Childers said. I wanted it to have that gritty mountain sound.
But at the same time, I wanted a more modern version of it that a younger generation can listen tothe people I grew up with, something Id want to listen to. Is a mixed media and watercolor artist from a small town (Roan Mountain) in East Tennessee. He focuses primarily on figurative, with a focus on portraits. Watercolors are his primary medium, but will supplement with gouache, colored pencils, or ink.
His major at ETSU (East Tennessee State University) was Illustration, but he has moved into the realm of fine art painting. After college he joined the United States Air Force as a SERE (Survival Evasion Resistance and Escape) Specialist, and is still currently on Active Duty (15 yrs of Service).While in the service he has lived in many places to include Italy which have broadened my artistic taste. He has 4 boys, ages 2, 4, 10, 12 and a lovely wife Shawna. That being said, it is necessary to maximize his time between my military job, spending time with his boys, and artwork. Isaac currently lives in Spokane, Washington and spends most evenings working on commissioned or personal art pieces. He donates hid time and his talents for the ISAAC Tribute Festival as it is a cause which is close to his heart (His 4 yr old Elijah is on the spectrum) and Isaac is proud to be a part of such a great local program.
