Here is a short biography from his official website:
"What I do: I’m a independent alternative musician, and I dabble in just about every genre in existence, from classical to modern electronica. I have recorded 4 studio albums, and 3 remix albums. I’m experienced in production, songwriting, sound design, drum programming, and thematic composition. I am currently looking for opportunities to score games or films that may require soundtracks. Meanwhile, I’m honing the craft of scoring by working on indie games.
Who I am: My name is Tyler Shaw a.k.a. Aviators and I hail from Vermont. I began my musical journey at the age of 4, when I began playing the violin. I played it for 8 years before quitting and moving on to other things. I figured that playing the violin would never get me anywhere in life, but I now realize that it had grown my skills in music theory, as well as teaching me to read music. I picked up the guitar shortly after quitting violin, and instead of taking lessons I taught myself. Instead of going the typical route of learning chords and such, I just played around with solos and learned to play songs by ear. In early 2011, I took my first step in music production; I began using a DAW. Garageband was my first one, and it taught me all the basics. I played around with everything I could and pumped out a couple absolutely horrible songs. After months of fiddling with Garageband, I chose to move to a more pro-level DAW. Fruity Loops was my first choice, and I quickly learned that I wasn’t ready for such a big switch. Having no idea what I was doing was a good thing, though… It allowed me to learn quickly by trial and error. I played around with it for a couple months, and I ended up working on what became my debut album, Reflections of a Dream."
