Twelve year old John-Robert Lee Rimel is a rising singer/performer from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He currently attends Middle School and is in the 7th Grade. John-Robert sings in the school chorus where he was selected for the All District Middle School Choir and was also selected through a rigorous audition process for the All State Virginia Middle School Honor Choir. He has the distinguished honor of being the only boy selected in Shenandoah County. John is the oldest of 4 children, so his siblings are always looking up to him.
His Father shared with me that John-Robert showed musical talent at a very young age. Their first memory of his ability came during a visit from his Aunt who played guitar, when she noticed that John-Robert was humming along in perfect pitch. “We didn’t think much of it at the time”; his father said. “He was just 5 years old”.
Since first introducing Tyler Layne on this site last October, Tyler has been staying extremely busy in the recording studio and on stage. His writing and composing skills, not to mention his amazing vocal ability has captured the attention of many, especially those who flock to his performances in and around the Chesapeake, Virginia area, and Norfolk, Hampton Roads fans where he attends school.
“I sing and write because I love it. Any success I have is because I have people that believe in me. If I can inspire someone to follow their dreams as a performing artist, then it’s worth the ride for me to do this,” Tyler Layne
