Micah Tyler, New Today
Writing honest songs that put words to the unspoken is at the heart of every songwriter. Whether it’s a melody that uplifts or a lyric that meets people where they are, songwriters chase that connection, the link in the chain of the human experience. When setting out to write songs for his latest release, New Today, singer-songwriter Micah Tyler hoped to tell the most authentic stories he could with the life experience he had. His goals were two-fold. One, that the songs would line up with God’s word and two, that they would be about something he’d personally experienced. What he didn’t count on was his whole world caving in.
At the start of creating New Today, Micah’s career played like a highlight reel: hit songs including “Even Then” and “Different,” multiple award nominations, and tours with personal heroes like Big Daddy Weave, MercyMe, and Jeremy Camp. Things were going better than he’d ever imagined. Then, in the fall of 2017, Hurricane Harvey hit his hometown of Buna, Texas.Show More
