(LOS ANGELES) -- Teen pop prodigy Tyler Sellers has just released his new single, the infectious “Friend Zone.” The track features a slick bass line and an expertly played, downright funky guitar that showcases Tyler’s clear talent as a master of the six-string. The single also showcases Sellers’ ability to rock a jazz-fusion track with all the sultry, falsetto vocal hallmarks of the genre, but with the addition of his own youthful, pop spirit. “Friend Zone” is the lead single from Tyler’s debut EP which will be released in April via FRETMONKEY RECORDS.

Tyler had this to say about “Friend Zone”:

"Usually I don't write from experience being so young, I write from inspiration, but this song being a concept that almost everyone can relate to, I was able to connect with the lyrics in a more personal way. Writing the song acoustically first, it had a much different vibe to it that made me really feel the song. Once we got in the studio and laid it down, musically we were able to take the song to another level. The combination of the bass, drums, and electric guitars perfects the vision I had with this song. I originally wanted a vintage funk kind of feel to it and I believe that's exactly what we did. Couldn’t be happier with the new groove it has. This has become one of my favorites to jam out to on stage. Hope this is one that you guys can be jamming out to in the car as well."

Tyler Sellers will be making his television debut on Friday March 10th, on JUCE TV’s JUCELIVE LA. Tyler will be performing “Friend Zone” and fans can catch the performance at 7PM PST via TV (Dish Ch 264, ATT Uverse Ch 570) or streamed live online.

Tyler’s pathway to stardom has already been paved with accolades. He has won two international singer-songwriting events, and has garnered the attention and support of music industry professionals. Tyler was also featured on Real Life STL for “Best Top 10 Billboard Cover” of the week for his YouTube video of the Twenty One Pilots hit song, “Stressed Out.”
