Howdy! I’m Karmyn Tyler! (a.k.a. Mrs. Cobb!) Welcome to my little website! Glad to have you here!
Here’s a little about me. I was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas and grew up in the Ark-La-Tex town of Texarkana, USA. I am the youngest of 5 kids (2 girls and 3 boys). I began my love of music laying under the piano at church while my Mom played for the service. (My Mom’s an AMAZING pianist – BTW!) She did her best to encourage piano in my life, but I took more to singing and (thanks to the then-new Disney channel) musical theatre, film and TV.

My husband, Christopher Cobb, and I live in Manhattan with our beautiful cat-son, Skinny Kitty. I teach private singing lessons & voice technique and continue my flirtation in the entertainment field.
Here’s a little about my page. This is basically my Internet home base. I put links to my music, photography, teaching and acting life. I’m also crazy interested in technology. So much, in fact, that I created a silly podcast in 2006 called “The Karmyn Kast” about my love of TECH! (Boo to Mevio for shutting down and goDaddy for deleting my hard work…oh well…lesson learned!) I also share tips and such on skin care and…you may even find a political statement every now and then…OYE!
If you are interested in hearing my music you can search for me on Spotify or hear my music on mySpace. (Yes, I know the Album Photo is intense – giggle!!) You can also buy my music on iTunes or at CDBaby.
I’m quite active on social media. Facebook and Twitter are my main hubs, but I’m really starting to enjoy Instagram and Google+! Oh! And don’t forget my Blog on this site. I’ve been blogging since 2005! (Oye!) 😉
Before you go, I’d love for you to sign up for my monthly newsletter. I will let you know all about my pursuits and what influences have aided me along the way, but I PROMISE not to use it for ridiculous reasons like…crappy SPAM mail where you’re going “OMG-GAW!”
Feel free to leave me a “YO” below! 🙂 OH! And it’s pronounced just like ‘Carmen’ only my Mom had to get all crazy with the spelling! 😉
This voice is hot and geared up to lay some sizzling tones across your space so make room! – Karl Strober, Jazz Trends
