Tyler Dettloff is an Anishinaabe Métis, Italian, and Irish musician, poet, professor, gardener, and water protector raised on the edge of the Delirium Wilderness. He currently lives in Gnoozhekaaning (Bay Mills, Michigan) and teaches College Composition at Lake Superior State University. He has earned a B.S. in English and a dual track M.A. in Literature and Pedagogy from Northern Michigan University. Mostly, he enjoys walking along rivers with his wife Daraka and daughter Meadow and through swamps his dogs Banjo and Fiddle.
Tyler said, “I play folk music because it is the music of the people. The things I sing and the things I am drawn to write about are the conversations that are happening around here of the people.”
Musician and poet from the swampy Delirium Wilderness of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Tyler performs as a one-man-blues-band and records with Lost Dog Records.
“Allow the power to flow through you. Don’t try to capture it. You wish only to borrow it.”

“SEV’S CELLAR” // with Sev Micron
A classically trained musician with a penchant for the punk music. Sev has played in numerous bands, on keyboards, drums and voice. Tulpa, with John Bottomley, holds a special place and so do the rock punkers, Throbbin’ Hoods. Sneaking up on 40 years of experience in a variety of mediums, Sev Micron engineers Muzicare Productions and has produced a good number of indie artists. Songwriting is another of Sev’s many and considerable talents.
And it wouldn’t be right to not mention that Sev loves animals, dogs especially (hi Bella), and that cooking is a forte! Peace and love are big fans, too.
