Tyler Hilton joins the AMP3 Client Roster
AMP3 is proud to announce Tyler Hilton as the newest addition to our client roster.
Tyler Hilton is a multi-talented singer/songwriter best known as the actor behind musician character Chris Keller on the CW’s “One Tree Hill”.
A lifelong guitarist who began playing with his father, then in the coffeehouse venues of his native Palm Springs, CA, Tyler released his self-titled debut independently in 2000.
That same year he was scouted for the role of Chris, a guest performer on “One Tree Hill”, and signed to the Warner Brothers label.
With Warner Brothers, he released his second album, the critically acclaimed “The Tracks of Tyler Hilton” (2004), drawing national attention and comparison to contemporaries like Gavin Degraw and Ryan Adams, as well as Elvis Presley, who he was cast to play in the Johnny Cash biopic “Walk the Line” (2005).
On March 31st, in Boston, MA, Hilton kicked off a national tour to promote his long-awaited third album, “Forget the Storm”; which he released independently on April 3; the day of One Tree Hill’s U.S. series finale.
A personal lyricist, the album’s title and many of its tracks are charged with Hilton’s artistic frustrations during the eight-year span between releases; over the course of which; he recorded a fourth album of materiel, “The Storms We Share”, owned but never released by Warner Brothers.
“Forget the Storm” has already been well-received as “worth the wait” by Tyler Hilton’s loyal fanbase, and, if the album’s breakthrough onto the Billboard Top 200 is any indication, it’s a group of fans that’s growing daily.

Contorno’s Restaurant Hosts a Private Media Tasting Event
On Wednesday, February 22nd, Contorno’s Restaurant celebrated their official grand opening with an invite-only media tasting event at their new space, located at 30 West 31st Street inside the new boutique Holiday Inn Express. Guests enjoyed wine tastings as well as a selection of small plate passed hors d’oeuvres from the menu developed by executive chef David Buico. Popular items included a Hand Rolled Ricotta Gnocchi w/ Wild Boar Bolognese & Shaved Dry Ricotta, Shrimp Al Pancha w/ White Heirloom Beans, Spicy Salami and Tomato Jus, and Grilled Zucchini w/ English Mint and Pine Nut Pesto as well as a Milk Chocolate & Pistachio Tart and a New York Cheese Cake. The regular menu is filled with Rustic Italian style “small plate” options designed to be paired with the extensive wine list. With the lights turned down low and the music playing, a mood was set. The open layout (with seating for 110) allowed guests ample space to explore, mingle and sample wines from around the world. Contorno’s General Manager, Marta Cisneros, and owner, Andrew Impagliazzo, worked the room— mingling with the crowd and making sure that everyone was being taken care of. Contorno’s is certainly the new kid in an interesting neighborhood (i.e. Empire State Building, Herald Square, Korea Town), but Cisneros says, “There’s really nothing like us in this area and we’re looking forward to surprising people with everything that we have to offer— from our wines, to our food to our general ambiance. We want to create relationships with our customers and keep them coming back for more,” and after last night they definitely will be.
Check out all the photos from the Tasting Event on the Contorno’s Facebook fan page.
This week, Contorno’s also introduced “Swirl Tuesday’s”. Each week GM/Sommelier Marta Cisneros will lead customers in sampling a red or white wine flight from a different region, and help them learn about the wine and how to pair it with different dishes.
Contorno’s restaurant is located at 30 West 31st Street, between 5th Avenue and Broadway (www.ContornosRestaurant.com).
