Tyler Pridgen is from a small town called Leroy in the state of Alabama. Tyler started his endeavor drumming at a very young age. His dad Shane, was a touring drummer for a gospel group for 15 years. After his dad retired he gave his drum kit to Tyler. Shane now travels with Tyler as his drum Tech. Tyler had the privilege of touring with his dad when he was a kid. Through the years he started seeing what the music life was like and he fell in love. He took up drumming when he was just two years old. His passion for music continued to grow as he got older. He is now touring with a Christian Contemporary band called One Step Closer. Tyler says "I owe a lot of success to my father, who introduced me to music. But I ultimately give the credit to God for blessing me with the love and the ability to play drums."
