“Judgement Day” by Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown, from the album “Truth And Lies”

Indeed, if there’s one thing Truth And Lies makes plain, it’s that Tyler Bryant is fast developing into a songwriter of serious repute. He’s now capable of putting his singular stamp on material as eclectic as the witty, ‘Born Under A Bad Sign’-esque ‘Judgement Day’ and the turbulent alt.rocker ‘Couldn’t See The Fire’, while ballads showcasing his vulnerable streak, including the redemptive ‘Shape I’m In’ and the heartfelt ‘Out There’ (“Love will break your heart/Life will break your bones”), are also fast becoming his forte.
