Methodist minister releases CD

Zionsville — Scott Tyring should have been studying calculus at Rose Hulman Institute of Technology, instead his roommate taught him a few chords on a Yamaha guitar.

Once he learned how to play Don McLean’s classic ballad “American Pie,” Tyring knew he had been bitten by the guitar bug. Now, the Zionsville United Methodist Church pastor has released his own CD, “Wrestling the Stranger.”

Tyring had been playing with the bands Living Stones and Rock Prophets before he decided to try recording his own CD.

“Our bass player quit after two years, and that was like my seventh bass player in 10 years,” he said. “I just needed to close that book and open up a new chapter.”

Tyring recorded a song for his daughter, Erika, for her high school graduation and recorded another song for his daughter, Amanda, when she graduated college.

“That was what really drove the idea for the CD,” Tyring said. “It started out with one song, then we were like ‘Why not do two?’ and it escalated from there.”

Andy Symons, ZUMC director of technology and studio manager at The Lodge Recording Studios, helped Tyring with the project.

“After recording those first few, he was really bitten by the bug,” he said. “He had this whole theme of ‘This is what I want to do.’ To be in the studio with some great players was really cool for Scott.”

Some of the players on the album were drummer Dane Clark, who tours with John Mellencamp, bassist Randy Melson, who has played with Grammy-winning Christian music singer Sandi Patty and guitarist Doug Henthorn, who has played with blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa.

Symons said that he and Tyring share a love of classic rock together. That love for classic rock can be heard in the album with influence from the sounds of Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, the Ramones, Elvis Costello, Steely Dan and Tom Petty.

“One of his many loves is music,” Symons said. “It’s sort of part of his DNA, and we share that. We talked for several hours about recording an album, and that sort of planted the seed.”
