Our WOKQ Sessions are always a grand 'ole time. It's hard to articulate how amazing it is to have life music in the radio station again! We had Tyler Braden swing by last Friday before he opened for Brantley Gilbert at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion. We were essentially his warm up show and it was nothing short of magical. It was a unique experience because Tyler told us that we were his first ever radio tour. Artists never forget the first radio station they visit! I like to think we hold a near and dear place in Ty Guy's heart.

And can we talk about his voice for a second? Holy powerhouse, Bat Man! I think I speak for everyone when I say we all felt very lucky to be witnessing such raw and genuine talent before our very eyes. ESPECIALLY when Tyler would belt out those notes and it felt like we could see inside his soul. Scroll through and listen for yourself!

Was that soul comment a little too deep? Okay, let's lighten things up with a fun little video! We do "60 Seconds With" videos with all of our artists that come through for WOKQ Sessions and it never ceases to amaze me how much you can learn about someone in just 60 seconds. My favorite is his response to "puppies or babies" at the end!

Enjoy 60 seconds with Tyler Braden:

After performing and knocking the socks off our listeners Tyler blew off some steam on our WOKQ corn hole boards. Let's just say he's a man of many talents! I've never seen someone sink so many bean bags!

Thanks for stopping by, Tyler! We will be following you to see all of the amazing places your career will take you. We can't wait to brag that we were the very first radio station you ever visited. Oh wait, we're already doing that!

As always a massive thank you to our sponsor Newburyport Bank for making #WOKQsessions possible. Can't wait for the next one!
