Bryson Tiller is a singer, songwriter, and rapper. He was born in Louisville, Kentucky and started singing and rapping at the age of 15. He started his musical career in 2011 (age 18) releasing his debut mixtape, Killer Instinct Vol. 1. In 2013, Tiller had a daughter and took a break from music to take care of her.
In October 2014, Tiller returned to music when he uploaded his single “Don't” to his Soundcloud account. The song received attention from music industry insiders. It was officially released on iTunes in May 2015 as the lead single from his debut album Trapsoul. “Don't” peaked at 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart and was remixed many times. Early co-signs from Timbaland and Drake led to major-label attention for Tiller, with him signing to RCA Records. In October 2015, Tiller released Trapsoul, which debuted at #11 on the US Billboard 200, later climbing to #8. The album's single “Exchange” earned him a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Song. At the end of 2015, Trapsoul was included in plenty of the year's “year end” lists.
In May 2017, Tiller released his second album, True To Self, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200.
