Tyler Bradley Walker studied computer music and composition at the University of Cincinnati College–Conservatory of Music, where he earned his Doctor of Musical Arts. He is an active composer, audio engineer, and music supervisor.

Tyler devotes his energy towards collaborations with well-known artists and vocalists from around the world. With his long-time collaborator, Matthew David Heim, he writes electronic music often synthesized with instrumentals and vocals. Walker has a strong interest in electroacoustic music processes, particularly the immersive impact that advanced recording techniques and analog synthesis can have on fixed-media composition.

From 2010-2015, Walker curated and operated a recording studio for the three-time GRAMMY Award-winning Zac Brown Band. In addition to holding various roles within the music industry, Walker has worked with The Doobie Brothers, Elton John, Megadeth, The String Cheese Incident, and many others. He is also an active music supervisor whose recent work includes the feature film Novitiate.
