Raphael Tiller grew up in the Upper Peninsula playing violin. Like many people, things changed when he started listening to Bob Dylan and moved to Duluth. While the influence always remains, Tiller has certainly come into his own style, breaking guitar strings all over Duluth in the process. He aims to write songs that “help explain the mysteries beyond our normal consciousness.” It seems to be working out just fine with lyrics like, “maybe freedom isn’t free, but I think you’re over-charging me.”
