Tyler Hilton, a musician and actor best known for his role as Chris Keller on the The CW’s hit show “One Tree Hill,” visited Glendale High School on Wednesday, performing several songs from his soon-to-be released album, “The Storms We Share.”
Students crowded the stage during the performance, using their cell phones to take photos and video. And after the short set concluded, they snapped up T-shirts and signed posters while waiting to meet the artist himself.
“Oh my god, he is so fine,” said senior Ani Karayan, 17. “I am going to die.”
The 26-year-old Palm Springs native, who described his sound as “Americana folk rock,” has been writing music since he was in high school, he said.
“I have been playing music for about 10 years,” Hilton said. “My family all played music too so I got into it when I was young.”
“The Storms We Share,” which will be released sometime next year, is Hilton’s fourth album. His previous albums include “The Tracks of Tyler Hilton,” “Better on Beachwood” and “Ladies and Gentlemen.”
