Tylor & The Train Robbers
Born and raised in Helix, Oregon, singer/songwriter Tylor Bushman started playing music at an early age. Fueled by musical influences within his family, he formed The Bushman Brothers Band with his younger siblings and began performing at local venues and events. Determined to further his career, Tylor left home and headed to Idaho in search of a broader music scene.
While establishing himself as a solo performer and becoming immersed in the Idaho music community, he decided to form the band that has evolved into Tylor and the Train Robbers. The name inspired by his late relative, the infamous, train-robbing, Black Jack Ketchum.
Tylor carefully selected musicians he knew would help him achieve the sound he was looking for. He called on his younger brother, Jason Bushman to join him in Idaho and continue their musical journey together. With Jason playing bass and singing backup vocals they created a core molded around sibling harmony. Helping hold down the rhythm fort is drummer, Flip Perkins. Rounding out the band’s sound is Idaho legend Johnny “Shoes” Pisano and his signature tele tone.
With this strong line up in place, Tylor & the Train Robbers have created a unique blend of gritty americana and outlaw honky tonk that has struck a chord within Northwest music scene. In their short time playing together they have been fortunate enough to share the stage with many of Tylor’s favorite bands and heroes such as; Micky & the Motorcars, Chris Knight, Ray Wylie Hubbard, American Aquarium, Jeff Crosby & the Refugees, Dale Watson, Shinyribs and many more.
Tylor & the Train Robbers are looking forward to continuing their journey and sharing their music beyond the Northwest. They are currently in the process of recording their debut album, which will be released when the time is right.
