TY SEGALL

 

Ty Segall grew up in the sunny surf of Orange County California's Laguna Beach where he spent his young days studying, surfing, and listing to the beach boys, the misfits, and black sabbath. Ty knew he had to get away from the sun in order to truly appreciate it, so he moved up north to the port of San Francisco and was amazed at how cold it was. Despite this fact, he found a new appreciation for psychadelic music and decided that he would give it a shot.

Since 2009, Ty has released about 9 albums..i think..it's hard to keep up with the creative hub of people that surrounds him. 2012 was especially productive with 'Slaughterhouse' released as Ty Segall Band, a colaborative record named 'Hair' with good friend White Fence both following up his singles collection of 2011.

He began 2013 with another collaboration, 'Reverse Shark Attack' (Drag City) this time with Mikal Cronin who plays in the Ty Segall band but is also is a rather awesome artist in his own right (yep, he's on Domino Publishing too)

Of course before all this, there was 2010's 'Melted' and 2009's 'Lemons'... Cool dudes.
