At only 17 years old, Toronto native Tyler Medieros has already done some big things. The cousin of fellow international breakout stars Shawn Desman and Danny Fernandes, Medeiros found music at a very young age, releasing his first songs at only 15. Receiving positive responses, he kept recording and his first official single, “Say I Love You (Please Don’t Go)” (feat. Lil Twist) was a smash hit with fans, and attracted the attention of pop/rap superstar Flo Rida, who signed him to his new label, International Music Group.

With his songs charting on MuchMusic and Family Channel, Medeiros kept busy on a huge arena tour with Flo Rida and Pitbull, and became the face of Family Channel’s Anti-Bullying Awareness Week. And he’s not stopping anytime soon.

“Growing up I always had a passion for music,” he says. “I’m going to keep making my music for my amazing fans… I haven’t even seen half the world yet. Still so much to do.”
