Beats at the Brix featuring Tyler Smilo @ 21 Brix Winery

Saturday, April 29th featuring Tyler Smilo

7:00 – 9:00pm

Join all your friends at 21 Brix Winery on the last Saturday of every month for their monthly music series, Beats at the Brix. On Saturday, April 29th, the winery will be hosting Tyler Smilo

Born in Texas and raised deep in the Rustbelt of Ohio, Tyler Smilo has lived a vagabond’s lifestyle before settling in Erie, PA and taking the city’s music scene by storm. An award-winning acoustic artist, Smilo’s Americana influenced folk songs are mostly autobiographical. However, the themes are easily relatable to the “everyman” and his performances both heartfelt and moving.

The release of two successful solo albums: Blood Into Sound and Dust In A Grave, a series of official videos dubbed the Rooftop Sessions, and fronting his own full band Daybreak Radio, has earned Smilo accolades in both regional and national entertainment publications. The genuineness and passion of Smilo’s music cannot be denied, and will make a lasting impression on anyone who chooses to take the chance to listen.

Admission to the event is free, but a wine purchase is required. The winery also has both hot and cold foods available for purchase. 

21 Brix Winery is located at 6654 West Main Road in Portland, between Westfield and Brocton on Route 20. Look for the pink elephant near the road! For more information about this event, call the winery at 792.2749.
