Tyler Key has been named Talent Buyer at the rejuvenated Cannery Hall in Nashville. In his new position he will spearhead all efforts and partnerships with artists on all three of Cannery’s Hall’s stages–Mainstage, The Mil and Row 1 Stage–for audiences ranging in size from 325–1,200.
Key has nearly a decade of experience under his belt, from managing artist booking and tour logistics to producing high energy local events like The Happening and TZKEY’s Graffiti Party in Nashville, he’s also worked with Bonnaroo, EDC, Austin City Limits, Pilgrimage Music Festival, Lollapalooza, Punk in Drublic, Music Midtown, Watershed, Rolling Loud, Hulaween Music and Arts Festival, and CMT’s Nashville.
“We want Cannery Hall to be the best venue experience, for both artists and patrons in Nashville, which is why we’re thinking through the entire artist experience from production to backstage amenities in the green room and even the booking experience,” says Brent Hyams, General Manager for Cannery Hall. “Tyler is an experienced artist manager and celebrated visual artist himself and knows what it’s like to be out on the road, creating art and performing night after night. His creativity and artistic instincts will make sure we have great acts every night across all musical genres.”
“Independent venues like Cannery Hall provide a different creative energy and platform for artists. We can highlight artists that are currently underrepresented in Nashville and don’t get opportunities on stages controlled by large corporations,” adds Key. “Cannery Row has been in Nashville for 140 years with over 40 years as a music venue. It’s an honor to be able to support artists I believe in while contributing to Cannery’s musical legacy.”
When Cannery Hall opens next year, it will be the largest independent music complex in Nashville.
