Although they have been described as the new Muse, Maroon 5, or Imagine Dragons… their extraterrestrial electronic sounds, catchy pop melodies, woven with lead Robot DPAK’s tenor vocals, electrified violin and acoustic guitar give Robot Nature its own futuristic sound.

Tyler Steele is the quintessential LA native who came through a lineage which makes his poetry and point of view as unique as they come. His father synthesized the cocaine that got all the rock stars high for a decade, but then he got arrested. His lawyer became Tyler's stepdad who started Death Row Records where Tyler got exposed to even more fantastical madness. Through the turmoil and danger, Tyler turned to the pen for solace and reckoning and in those torrent times, developed his voice as a truly gifted poet. From dysfunction emerged a painstaking shamanic POV ready to weave the antidote into his songs.
From Berklee School of Music to New York to London, around the globe and back to LA, Steele emerged wiser, burning like a Pheonix above his family tree as it burned beneath. He was ready to record. Having already been injected with the LA venom, Tyler found himself in the serendipitous circles that would bring his music to shine, recording with the cream of the crop boutique musicians in his hometown. He has been extremely prolific with poetry always at the forefront of his songwriting. He is a story teller with his archive of material still unreleased. They ask him what he's been waiting for, “As the cobra or the mamba would say, ‘the perfect, deadliest moment to strike.
