We had the good fortune of connecting with Ty Laramore and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ty, why did you pursue a creative career?
There was never a question in my mind as to whether or not I would be playing music. The first time I learned to play a song on the guitar I just knew this is what I would be doing for the rest of my life. There is something special about the way music communicates to the deepest part of a person, it can bring tears to the strongest man’s eyes and can help heal the wounds of the broken hearted. I am truly blessed to be the vessel that ushers those feelings to a crowd on any given night. We always hear the saying “if you love what you do you never work a day in your life”, that statement is the absolute truth. I don’t think I ever pursued music as a career intentionally, until I was so far into music that there was really no way out (not that I wanted to get out). There is always another heart to mend, another story to tell and another song to write.

Born and raised in Baytown, Texas; Ty grew up with a passion for Blues, Southern Rock and Country Music. Influenced by the music of Darius Rucker, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Keith Urban, his strong vocals and smooth tone blend together for a new twist on country music that penetrates the soul. At 7 years old he began playing drums on his brothers drum set; he was given his first guitar at the age of 11 and immediately fell in love with playing it. During his high school years he participated in band as a percussionist, but inevitably his heart was drawn back to guitar when he discovered his talent for singing and entertaining friends. After graduating in 2011, Ty chose to pursue music as a full time career. He spent the better part of the last decade, playing lead guitar for various Texas Country artists. He honed his own singing and songwriting talent and gained experience at local venues and dancehalls across Texas, earning him the opportunity to play with talented artists such as Wade Bowen, Roger Creager, Mike Ryan, Adam Hood, Chad Cooke Band and many others. On June 12, 2020, Ty released his first EP of original music. On February 11, 2022, Ty will debut his first release to Texas Radio with the single “Fix Your Broken Heart”
