Tyler Glenn is the lead vocalist and keyboardist for Neon Trees, a band whose musical roots lay in Provo, Utah. Along with Chris Allen [guitars], Branden Campbell [bass], and Elaine Bradley [drums and backing vocals], Tyler has taken the industry by storm, with recent appearances at SXSW [South by Southwest] and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. The band’s first single, “Animal,” has also been featured on VH1’s Secrets of Aspen and CW’s Melrose Place.
On April 10, 2010, Neon Trees embarked on a 25-city tour with 30 Seconds to Mars and MUTEMATH. In support of the tour, as well as the release of the band’s debut album, Habits, Tyler Glenn managed to squeeze some time out of his busy schedule and settle down for an interview with Clayton Perry — reflecting on the band’s Webisodes, “musical agenda,” and penchant for practical jokes.
