Evynn Tyler is a student, writer, and artist living in Reno, Nevada. Currently enrolled at the University of Nevada as a writing and journalism major, Evynn spends much of his time reading about, and interacting with the world. As a writer, Evynn has led numerous writing seminars (creative fiction and non-fiction), highly-popular fiction sites (he was the mind behind websites like Astonishing X and its sequel, Ultra Vires, both of which were collaborative writing projects which tackled the problem of oppression through the lens of science-fiction); he’s written various articles on human sexuality and relationships at Insight Magazine as a regular columnist (Up and Coming, an exploration of human sexuality and Lay of the Land, an exploration of problems in human relationships); he’s tackled the challenging topic ofheteronormativity as well as gender representation in articles like Threadbare Standard; and has even written op-eds in opposition to ethno-centricity, misogyny, and problems in popular culture (The Plight of the Yanomami; The Other Woman is Full of It; The Real Problem With Azealia Banks - Misogyny, Hip-Hop, and the New Decade; Deadly Attraction - The Fashion, Mobility, and Oppression of European Women).
More recently, Evynn has begun work as a solo-artist, expanding his lyrical and musical horizons after having collaborated as a vocal artist in award-winning band Bazooka Zoo (alongside Zachary Haley and J.D. Christison). His current project, Fever Dreams, is set for a September 2012 release. Marking a distinct departure from his previous work, Fever Dreams sets to paint the musical landscape of a free spirt in search of his artistic identity through lush soundscapes, high-energy, clever wordplay, and unabashed, finger-snapping sass.
Other projects of Evynn’s include a sci-fi graphic novel titled Transhumanity, a philosophical weighing-in of the value of the individual outlier placed within the context of an overwhelming cultural context—through the eyes of a super-heroine; as well as a collection of non-fiction essays titled Additive Light — an exploration of art and human existence in a digital age.
Evynn Tyler currently acts as the editor-in-chief of Nevada Insight, a magazine created by and for the undergraduate population at the University of Nevada, which distributes to the local area and covers local stories.
