At age 11, Tylah wrote and recorded her first original song called ‘Take A Breath’.  It won Bare Bones Acoustic song of the year at Songs Alive Australia Songwriters awards in 2014.

In 2015, age 12, Tylah co-wrote her second single ‘Poppies’ about her Great Grandfather and his journey to Gallipoli.  It won Bare Bones Acoustic song of the year at Songs Alive Australia Songwriters awards that year. Tylah was awarded a mentorship with a Sydney Artist Development company, and recording prize.  ‘Poppies’ then went on to place 2nd in lyrics and 9th place in the Australian Song writing Awards for Australian Song of the Year and a place in Tamworth Australian Song of the Year in 2016.  Tylah worked with Damian Leith as a result of being a finalist.  

Tylah’s songwriting, gained the attention of Music Australia and Tylah was flown to Sydney to co-write ‘Gold’ the 2015 School song for ‘Music Count Us In’ with Marcia Hines and John Foreman.  This opened up other opportunities including a place in QMusic/Sugarrush ‘Big Sky Girls’ with mentors from Sony Music Publishing Australia.

By age 14, Tylah was signed to management in Canada and began writing for various overseas producers and record labels. At 16, Tylah, moved to any agency in Australia and continued to write for many electronic artists and labels, travelling to Europe, UK and US for various projects, including shows in Italy, writing sessions in LA including the opportunity to write a demo for Jennifer Lopez & Nicki Minaj working with Neon Hitch & Ushers producers to name a few.

Tylah had at this time charted in Switzerland, Germany, Russia and by age 17 charted on the Beatport charts at #5 for one of her collaborative singles.  She also has many sync placements in the gaming world with a partnership with Kobalt music publishing via Monstercat.

Now an Independent and self-managed artist, Tylah is looking toward releasing her upcoming EP this year followed by her album in 2024, whilst still collaborating and song writing for other emerging artists.  Tylah is also passionate about her future aspirations as a Speech Pathologist to help singers and speakers correct and maintain their vocal health, and as a Teacher/Mentor, including global music connections and inclusivity within the disability sector and creating music opportunities for under privileged children in Cambodia to live out their dreams.
