It's evident that every time Richard Tyler Epperson resurfaces with new material, he makes another evolutionary leap with his art and craft. Nearly ten years into his career as a professional independent artist, the Salt Lake City, Utah-based singer-songwriter has earned praise for his depth and heartfelt song writing following multiple albums and singles. Every move Epperson has made in his career has shown him leveling up along the way. This is true of his first album, 2013’s Falling Between the Stars, his second album, 2014’s Hourglass, and pivotal singles in his catalog like "Tonight" and "When I Build My World" (the latter of which would go on to be a critically acclaimed cut from his Another Day EP, released in 2021).
Born into a family with a long musical history, Epperson learned to play the bass and keyboard in his youth and, with ambitions to pursue a career as a musician already well-ingrained, recorded all of the instruments (minus drums) on his first album himself.
