Southern California-based singer-songwriter Tyler Hilton makes music that neatly and safely covers all the bases. It’s a little bit rock, a little bit country and a whole lotta pop. These are the kind of tunes you could pop into the Suburban’s CD player on a long trip with ’rents and you’d both be happy. But here’s something kind of cool about Hilton: The artist isn’t afraid to open up and share his trade secrets. Go to his website and watch video clips on topics including a “guitar tutorial” for his “Sunset Blvd” single and how to cook a perfect romantic dinner for your significant other. 9426 Greenback Lane in Orangevale;
