Singer/songwriter, Tyler James Bellinger, who is best known for churning out hits behind the scenes, continues to put his unique stamp on the music industry with his powerful solo releases.
Produced by Michael MacAllister, his newest single, “Save Me” is out everywhere today.
“I wrote ‘Save Me’ with my friend Lena Leon in 2017” shares Bellinger. “The song was a prayer for me. At the time I was going through some relationship troubles and I was struggling with the idea that my relationship wasn't going to work out.”
“Save Me” is part of Bellinger’s forthcoming project. He will continue to drop new music this summer coinciding with his upcoming appearance on the NBC television show Songland. On the show, undiscovered songwriters pitch their original songs to superstar recording artists and a panel of music producers.
Third single “Find a Way” will follow next month.
Earlier this year, Bellinger released his lead single, “Feel Like Home,” and its accompanying video. “Feel Like Home” celebrates belonging and acceptance for LGBTQ+ homeless youth. The song is based on true events from lives of two trans women of color who shared their unique stories with Bellinger. For the release of the video, Bellinger partnered with The Ali Forney Center, the nation’s largest and most comprehensive agency dedicated to LGBTQ homeless youth.
“’Feel Like Home’ is incredibly personal to me, as I wrote it for my partner,” explains Bellinger. “My hope is that the video will continue to draw light upon LGBTQ+ homelessness and the adversity that trans women, particularly trans women of color, face daily.”
In addition to his songwriting and solo career, Bellinger is one half of the band KNGDAVD. The act has amassed nearly 5 million plays on Spotify. KNGDAVD’s single “Blood On Our Hands” has been featured in Guinness’ 200th anniversary commercials and the trailer for the new movie The Public. Their single “You Never Know” was featured in the Marvel TV show Cloak and Dagger, and their song “Say My Name” will be featured in the upcoming season of Netflix’s Lucifer.
