SINGING SENSATION: Senior Tyler Bernhardt poses for a portrait for his album, “What is This.” The album will be available on the Web on iTunes and Amazon around Thanksgiving. “What is This” was co-produced with UM alumnus Luke Moellman. Bernhardt was recently signed by the label Forward Motion Records, who is known for representing local Miami artists Arboles Libres and Dreaming In Stereo. Motion Records will help promote “What is This” online. Bernhardt sees his signing as “a step forward” and as an invitation into a “community of artists.” Bernhardt is currently preparing for his senior recital, which is the capstone of the jazz voice major. His recital will be at 8 p.m. Feb. 8 at the Frost School of Music’s Gusman Hall.
