Album Notes
From start to finish, Long Before the Wheel is bursting evidence of Tyler Stenson’s unique ability to craft elegant songs with unparalleled heart and authenticity. Recorded in a house in Nashville, TN, the Elegant Folk album is a storyteller’s journey in a fittingly stripped down format. Autobiographical at its core, Stenson co-produced this celebration of life and the dynamics that accompany the human existence with Peter Rodocker. Chalk full of gripping lyrics, poignant vocals and unforgettable acoustic melodies, the minimalist approach showcases Stenson as an genuine solo artist in an age of typical over-production and studio glitz.

No matter your mood, no matter your disposition, Long Before the Wheel is a universal record for all humans alike. From the first lyric to the trailing notes, this is an album for the ages and evidence that true artists still exist.

I've waited for what seems like forever to have this CD in MY HANDS :) To say the least, it WAS WORTH THE WAIT. Tyler Stenson makes the most beautiful sound, coupled with immaculate MUSIC!! You need ONE for you & ONE for your BEST FRIEND :)


Unbelievably Crafted... Better With Each Listen!
He has done it again!! Tyler Stenson, is in my opinion, a rare hidden treasure in the music world. It is only a matter of time before his deep, yet relate-able lyrics become a fixture in America's home. Long Before the Wheel, proves he is an artist that only gets better with time.


Heartfelt + Timeless
Stenson's lyrically driven melodies speak to the heart. Every carefully crafted line of all of these songs continues to show the amount of talent Tyler possesses, and the degree of passion behind his words. A wonderful little addition to a burgeoning number of records Tyler has put out as of late...

Long Before the Wheel...awesome
This album contains lyrical depth, soul-soothing melodies, inspiring concepts, and pleasing harmonies...I would recommend it to anyone who can appreciate revealing, poetic, vulnerable music. I would claim Daffodils as my favorite song on the album, but then Clover, We Grow ,That Moon and Leave Oregon might overhear me and be jealous; they each come in as very very close seconds. (Maybe they're all tied for first.) Highly recommended, a beautiful example of the talent and artistry of Tyler Stenson.
