Tyler Mast & Paradise Divide
Tyler Mast & Paradise Divide's electrifying sound fuses world rhythms with artistic melodies and subtle jazz harmonies to create a colorful spread of cleverly hip music known as "groove-art". Featuring members of Barika, Josh Panda & The Hot Damned, Eight 02 and Dead Set, Paradise Divide has no shortage of instrumental prowess and musical sensibilities. The group is currently gigging throughout Vermont to promote the release of their debut EP “Stereo Esteria”, as well as fine-tuning a new collection of material for their first full-length release. Beginning April 2016, “Stereo Esteria” will be available for free download at the band’s website.
Organist and keyboardist Tyler Mast’s compositions come to life with the skilled musicianship of soprano/tenor saxophonist Chris Peterman, drummer Caleb Bronz, guitarist Colin Lenox, and bassist Matt Davide. This unique collection of some of Vermont’s most sought-after instrumentalists allows the group to apply both the sophistication of jazz and the incredible diversity of world genres to the American groove music scene in a totally unspoiled way. Textured, nuanced, dynamic and intricate, yet equally danceable, exploratory and rocking, Tyler Mast & Paradise Divide offer an intriguing sound perfect for those who like to groove outside the box.
