Tyler Bryant's had a guitar in his hand almost as long as he can remember.  After getting his first axe at  6 years old, the Texas native was almost immediately tabbed as a guitar prodigy — and his career path was locked in as a pre-teen.

Over the past few years, the resume of the now 21-year-old Bryant continues to build, as his band Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown tour with acts like Jeff Beck, Aerosmith and B.B. King.

Of course, it never hurts when the OTHER guitarist in your band is Graham Whitford, son of Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford.

The band's blues rock style was on display at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, where the band rocked out for a special live performance at the Everest Mansion in Park City, powered by Saygus.  Bryant and the band hung out with Crave to about their gig, their influences and what's ahead for a 21-year-old budding guitar god.
