Tyse Burrows


Tyse Burrows is the keyboardist and one of the founding members of Opus Rex.  He met Karl and Graehme through private teaching and more recently their involvement within various projects (Bipolar Feedback, ex-Autocratic Oath).  Tyse began classical piano training at age 3 and private drum lessons at 11.  This sparked his interest in music, specifically through his involvement with a high-school jazz combo.  Currently Tyse attends UWO studying percussion and composition as well as performing with a number of other projects.  These include Boreal the Sky (ex-The Phusion), Derek Stocking Group, Bipolar Feedback as well as solo electronic, classical and ambient works.

Tyse’s writing influences range from progressive rock/metal (Haken, Mars Volta, Steven Wilson, Frank Zappa) to electronic (Chvrches, Samuel Jackson Five, Nine Inch Nails, Nerve) to indie (Bosnian Rainbows, Half Moon Run, Raconteurs).  Notable influences for Tyse’s approach to the keyboard include Jordan Rudess (of Dream Theater), Chick Corea, Tony Banks (Genesis) and Adam Holzman (ex-Miles Davis, Steven Wilson).
