Tyler Ray Ward is an American independent singer/songwriter and producer born on March 12, 1988.
Before Ward had an interest in music, he was focused on athletics. After graduating from high school, Ward enrolled at the United States Air Force Academy Preparatory School, where he played football. Ward's temperament was incompatible with military discipline, however, and he dropped out. After leaving the Air Force Academy, Ward was accepted into the University of Northern Colorado and started to write songs while seeking a journalism degree.
Ward began by playing the bass at his church. It was not until high school when he taught himself how to play the guitar that he developed his love for music. 
Ward has opened shows for The Jonas Brothers and The Fray. Through his music video career, Ward has performed and recorded most of his early songs and many of the current ones in his parents' basement, which he later turned into a proper recording space. Nowadays, Ward records his songs in a bedroom studio that he created in his Los Angeles apartment. Ward is popular on YouTube.
In 2011, Ward performed a duet with The Band Perry, celebrating the Academy of Country Music Awards and went on a tour with Boyce Avenue. Later that year, Ward performed with Christina Grimmie live on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Their performance aired nationwide on October 10, 2011.
In October 2013, Warner Music Group retained seven YouTube stars, including Ward, Kina Grannis, and Peter Hollens, to help promote a new single by Hunter Hayes and Jason Mraz. Ward and the others independently recorded versions of the song, "Everybody's Got Somebody But Me," which were subsequently mashed up into a video posted exclusively on YouTube. This was the first such venture by Warner, whose senior vice-president for interactive marketing said optimistically that "[f]or some kids, people like Kurt Schneider and Tyler Ward are people that they trust."
Ward released his album on October 18, 2013 titled Honestly. Honestly included 12 original songs that fettered up and coming artists including Alex G. and Lindsey Stirling. Ward is set to begin touring in the Spring of 2014 in Europe and the United States. He begins the tour with an online concert where fans can stream it live. Following that the live tour is to begin in Germany on May 22, 2012.
