Ty Baynton may have grown up in the small town of Waterdown ON, but this ‘Canadian Country Boy’ has stadium sized vocals. Ty picked up a guitar at age 14 and never looked back, writing his first song by age 15. He grew up listening to classic country, classic and 90’s rock, with influences of Randy Travis, Tom Petty and Oasis.

Ty followed this up with his signature song, Canadian Country Boy, which launched him on a series of cross-Canada tours and back into the recording studio for a full length album- Good Ol’ Boy released in the Spring of 2014.

Always willing to lend a hand or take the time to chat with fans and friends . With a killer voice, infectious smile, and boyish charm, Ty is definitely a breakout artist worth paying attention to.
