Tyson Ballew is a D.I.Y. singer-songwriter currently living in Bellingham, WA who spent 10 years frolicking in the seedy Missoula, MT underground scene. Tyson plays pop-punk-inspired folk music similar to The Mountain Goats, Clem Snide, Emperor X, and Ghost Mice. He has performed over 300 solo sets and believes everyone has a story to tell.

Tyson's most recent E.P., Moa in Repose, was recorded on February 25th, 2013 at The Unknown in Anacortes, WA. It was engineered, mixed and mastered by Nicholas Wilbur. This E.P. is Tyson's latest in a trilogy of tapes about extinct flightless birds. In his own words, Moa in Repose is "about giving up and going to sleep".

The first edition of this tape is limited to 50 copies and comes on canary yellow cassettes. The cover art is a painting done by Jill Pucciarelli. All copies of this tape come with a digital download code.
