The Ohio Artist Registry (OAR) is an exciting opportunity for artists to share their work, connect with the creative community, and establish an online presence—all on a free, virtual platform! The OAR encourages artists working in all art forms, throughout Ohio and beyond,  to create a profile, which allows them to better promote themselves and their work. Being listed in the OAR provides artists with new opportunities to share their work with clients, galleries, patrons, and audiences. A listing in the OAR does not confer an endorsement, approval, or verification by the Ohio Arts Council.

Tylur Starks is from Columbus, OH. Growing up Tylur loved listening to Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Janis Joplin and other, which reflects in her writing and vocal style.  Listening to Etta James and other greats, one would say she is an old soul. Tylur has been singing her whole life and being a 90’s baby she loved Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, and all the greats of that time. However, her favorite artist is Selena Quintanilla-Perez; she loves her music and style. At the young age of 8 Tylur decided to peruse her dream career of being a vocalist. By the time she was 13 she had the opportunity to work with professional, seasoned artists like Ron Hope, Justin Riley, Troy Jones, and the one and only Foley. Her vocal coaches have been Talisha Holmes and the amazing jazz vocalist Mary McClendon. All of these amazing artists took her under their wing and began grooming her into the artist she is today. In November of 2012 Tylur moved to Texas, while living in Texas, Tylur had the opportunity to perform at many events throughout the state.  In June 2018 she opened for R&B vocalist Lyfe Jennings in San Antonio, TX. Then in May 2019, Tylur got the chance to be an opening act for one of her all-time favorite artists Vivian Green at Hanover’s 2.0 in Austin, Tx. Tylur has two previously released songs titled “Front Porch” and “Nervous”; and just recently she released her newest single titled “Track 2” these songs tell very heartfelt stories that truly show a piece of her soul.
