Alex “AJ” Tyus is a dynamic lead guitarist from Cleveland, OH. He started his musical journey at the age of 14 after receiving his first guitar as a birthday gift. Influenced by Jimi Hendrix and other Classic Rock Guitarists, he was inspired to continue learning more about the electric guitar. From there AJ expanded his musical knowledge in other genres like Gospel, Rock, Jazz, HipHop, R&B, and Fusion. This would give way to regular performances on Cleveland’s music scene and Churches.
After attending the 2010 NAMM Convention in Anaheim California, he was influenced to seek bigger stages and attracted the attention of R&B singer Johnny Gill. Later being extended the opportunity to join his band. This was his first “big gig” that created a domino effect in obtaining new opportunities to build his musical resume. He has also had the pleasure of sharing the stage with artists such as Tank, TBoz of TLC, and Algebra Blessett, and currently Cleveland’s own Machine Gun Kelly.
