James Tyler Wallace: His father having been a freelance musician and his mother a nomadic singer-songwriter, James Tyler Wallace’s parents have been cultivating and nourishing a musical passion within him since his earliest years. Throughout childhood and adolescence, James Tyler experimented with several music styles, techniques, and instruments, honing his musical skills both technically and vocationally, so that at the ripe age of fourteen he could begin opening for local bands and performing at community events. As he took the stage for the very first time, he had an overwhelming feeling that the stage was where he was destined to be. Ever since that night, he knew what it would take for him to be able to return to the stage consistently, and he has done everything in his power to propel him to that point. He writes his own original and eloquent lyrics, develops all of his own musical pieces.
Music will also be provided by Stella Weaver, Pickin’ on the Square, and Musicology students. There will also be a stage featuring local Christian bands and choirs hosted by Four Corners Church.
