  • Biography
    My name is Tyler Shaw a.k.a. Aviators and I hail from Vermont.

    I’m an independent electronic musician. I pretty much make everything from dubstep to alternative, metal to orchestral. I specialize in vocal songs, which usually take elements from alternative rock and modern electronica. I prefer to cover and combine a wide range of genres instead of fitting into just one. Why settle for one when you can have them all?

    I began my musical journey at the age of 4, when I began playing the violin. I played it for 8 years before quitting and moving on to other things. I figured that playing the violin would never get me anywhere in life, but I now realize that it had grown my skills in music theory, as well as teaching me to read music.

    I picked up the guitar shortly after quitting violin, and instead of taking lessons I taught myself. Instead of going the typical route of learning chords and such, I just played around with solos and learned to play songs by ear.

    In early 2011, I took my first step in music production; I began using a DAW. Garageband was my first one, and it taught me all the basics. I played around with everything I could and pumped out a couple absolutely horrible songs. After months of fiddling with Garageband, I chose to move to a more pro-level DAW. Fruity Loops was my first choice, and I quickly learned that I wasn’t ready for such a big switch. Having no idea what I was doing was a good thing, though… It allowed me to learn quickly by trial and error. I played around with it for a couple months, and I ended up working on what became my debut album, Reflections of a Dream.

    Today, I release an album every few months and continue to make music every day. I am also scoring a few indie games that will be released in the coming months.
