Tyson Motsenbocker Signs to Tooth & Nail

View Artist Page | View Album Page

We are proud to announce the signing of singer-songwriter Tyson Motsenbocker and welcome him to the Tooth & Nail Family. In North Central Washington State, Tyson Motsenbocker grew up in the apple orchards and pine forests at the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. After the release of two EP’s Until it Lands and Rivers and Roads Motsenbocker defined himself as a mature lyricist and accomplished songwriter, sharing the stage with the likes of David Bazan, Vance Joy and James Bay.

This week he starts a tour with Jon Foreman and then another tour in September with Mike Edel. Check out the tour dates below. For more info follow Tyson Motsenbocker on Twitter and like him on Facebook.

In 2013, after the death of his mother and hero, Motsenbocker walked the six hundred mile stretch of coastline to San Francisco in memory of her. In the contrast of loud cars on a dirty highway with the serene beauty of the Pacific Ocean Motsenbocker contracted a new view of life beyond loss, a renegotiated relationship with God and peace inside the turmoil. This walk would become the basis for his debut full length record set to release early next year on Tooth & Nail Records. Listen to the song "Evangeline" below or on our YouTube channel.
