Tyler Ramsey is best known as the lead guitarist for South Carolina-based indie favorites Band of Horses, but the Asheville, NC native has also enjoyed a fruitful solo career since releasing a self-titled album in 2005. Ramsey followed up that striking debut with two more collections of quiet, contemplative folk: 2008's A Long Dream About Swimming Across the Sea and 2011's The Valley Wind. He's currently on the road with fellow singer-songwriter Seth Kauffman, of exciting nu-folk outfit Floating Action, whose Athens ties include a coveted spot on the New West Records roster. The tour stops at Melting Point Wednesday.
