b l o o p r (born as tyler gauthier) is an american lofi hip-hop producer currently residing in nashville, tn.
since 2017, he's released several projects on soundcloud, bandcamp, and spotify.
although tyler was originally born in north carolina and eventually lived in florida, he spent his formative years in tennessee following a passion for music by playing trombone in different middle school bands and later picking up electric bass his freshman year of high school.
in 2015 at age 18, he would find himself abandoning traditional instruments for a brief time and began DJ'ing local house shows and events using borrowed equipment from friends in the small college town of murfreesboro, tennessee. soon after his first DJing gig, he bought an SP-404 SX to produce hip hop instrumentals informed by the generation of 90s and early 00s beatmakers before him. it wouldn't be long before he acquired a copy of Ableton Live and various samplers and synths to produce his signature style of smooth yet rough and rugged beats.
in 2018, b l o o p r moved to eugene, oregon to isolate himself and hone in on his beat-making process. there he was able to perform live at bars, clubs and houseshows alike, and network with other talented beatmakers/rappers across the state.
new opportunities would bring him back to nashville, tennessee in 2019 where he has continued his music journey.
