Teleportation Records co-founder Kraig Tyler has devoted his life to music for over 20 years. His humble mastery of multiple instruments, universally admired songwriting talent, and studio mastery has made Kraig a worldwide music commodity.
Kraig’s profound influence in the early industrial underground, including his bands Chemlab and 16Volt, was a major force in reshaping the direction of the music industry. His contribution as a member of Crazytown, whose song “Butterfly” went #1 in 14 countries worldwide, changed the face of music again.
As a writer on The Plain White T’s multiplatinum album “Every Second Counts”, score producer on the shows “Burnout” on MTV2 and “Drag Race High” on the Speed Network, Kraig continued to expand the boundaries of genre-bending on every front. While immersed in his ongoing success as a producer and writer, an epiphany during a DJ set at Burning Man drove him to write and perform as an artist again. In that moment, Liquid Giraffe was born.
Recently, Kraig has been creating music with friends around the world, and has performed at Lucidity, RESPECT, Love Long Beach, Tropical, Noise Revolt and countless other festivals and parties, while also opening for George Clinton and The Parliament Funkadelic, and playing for the incarcerated at San Quentin Prison.
