Tyler SYD on SoundBetter

I'm a singer /songwriter and creative director. I do R&B soul, alternative R&B, hip hop, trap, afrobeats and pop/pop rock.

Tyler SYD is a South African R&B/hip hop artist, born in 1997, September 11th. He's also independent but signed to his own record label named Antidote Music Group (pty) Ltd.
I am a songwriter as well, I write love songs ranging from R&B to hip hop and I am a creative director meaning that I don't do beats but I do know how to direct a beatmaker to create a new beat from scratch, exactly how I want it.
