Tyler Carter first earned fame as the lead singer of the band Issues, who melded the cool sounds of electronic pop with the aggressive attack of metal and punk rock, creating music that was powerfully emotional while displaying a very real rock & roll energy. For his 2015 solo project Leave Your Love, Carter has taken his music in a new direction, easing back on the harder music edges while letting his electronic influences work side by side with R&B and hip-hop accents. The result is Leave Your Love, an EP that walks the line between the quiet storm and the beats you can bump on a Saturday night, as well as revealing a new side to Carter's talents. While a handful of artists have crossed over from punk to pop, far fewer have convincingly made the jump from punk to romantic R&B, but Carter is here to show how it's done on Leave Your Love.
