About Tyson Oxford
Tyson Oxford plays lead Guitar for Marc Baker and Untamed Country. Born in Wichita, Tyson was raised in the small rural town of Fall River, KS. Starting in High School, Tyson and a friend had the urge to play and started a band. It was then that Tyson was introduced to the life of a traveling musician. Unfortunately, life set in and upon graduating high school, the band split up. Tyson was a member of several other bands in the area before meeting Marc.
Tyson is a drummer by trade but for the last 20 years has instead been accused of being a Guitar player. He taught himself how to play guitar at age 14 when his father introduced him to an old Fender Mustang which he had. Tyson's father then bought him his first guitar and Tyson bought the Amp to make the kit complete. Since then, Tyson has primarily played country music but still likes a good rock song. Some of his biggest influences have been Brent Mason, Vince Gill, Steve Stine and Dario Cortese.
Tyson is impressed with Marc's dedication to the music and professional appearance that he states "Attending a show is a Must!" Tyson has been a member of Marc Baker and Untamed Country since 2014.

As a house band we had the pleasure for opening for such artists as: Hayes Carll, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Aaron Watson, Neil McCoy, Brandon Rhyder and Jake Owen. Comanche Creek also had the opportunity to open for John David Kent at the Texas Bull in Gainesville, Texas for a show which was broadcast live to the troops in the middle east.
Phil's musical influences are country, old rock (60s and 70s) and blues. Phil currently lives in Wellington, Kansas and enjoys spending time with his wife of 39 years, grandkids, hunting, fishing, golf and anything else his body allows him to do. Phil's real passion in music is to play with good, funloving musicians and watching people he is playing for. According to Phil, there is nothing better than to see a dance floor packed and people really enjoying his music.
