"Home-recorded on 4-track cassette around 2004 and originally self-released under "The Paper Hats" on CD-R, the album Come and See collects the earliest solo works of the now critically acclaimed Nashville folk instrumentalist William Tyler. Come and See tells the story of a young artist experimenting with open forms. Minimalist Mixologica and non-escalative Noise fantasies lead to Tyler's now trademark contrapuntal Folk symphonies fingerpicked on his vintage acoustic guitar-a Tyler family gift-that is to this day his inspiration, cherished tool, and travel companion. While on tour as member of the band Lambchop in late 2004, Tyler had been giving away CD-R copies of Come and See to friends and collegues with the shy comment that it was "just some random noise". But the listener could sense that these ten instrumentals were first manifestations of serious musical (and lyrical) talent. Apparent Extent encouraged Tyler to continue writing music and released his first album Deseret Canyon as The Paper Hats. Tyler toured this record for two years in between many other sideman obligations, then went fully solo and released two further records in the US under his given name (Behold the Spirit for Tompkins Square, 2011 and Impossible Truth for Merge Records, 2013). Besides writing music and touring extensively as a solo artist in the US, UK, and continental Europe, William Tyler found the time to establish his own record label Sebastian Speaks (2005) and in 2012 (with his younger sister Elise Tyler) opened The Stone Fox, a bar and live music venue in Nashville."
