Tyson Jay Ritter (born April 24, 1984) is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, musician, actor, and model. He is best known as the lead vocalist, bassist, pianist, and songwriter of the multi-platinum selling American alternative rock band The All-American Rejects. As an actor, Ritter appeared as Dane on Amazon Video's Betas, recurred as rock musician Oliver Rome on NBC's Parenthood, and has had supporting roles in films, including The House Bunny (2008) and Miss You Already (2015). As of 2018, Ritter plays recurring characters on two television series on AMC, Preacher and Lodge 49. Early life Ritter was born on April 24, 1984 in Stillwater, Oklahoma, to Tracy Jean Rains (née Lyons; born to Edwina Janora Lyons Sherman and Tony Eugene Lyons) and Tim Jay Ritter (born to Peggy Earline Ritter Sharpton and Steve Delano Ritter). His mother is an employee at Stillwater Public Schools. He has an older brother, Dr. Zack S. Ritter, DDS, who is an endodontist, and a younger sister, Bailey Ritter. He and his siblings graduated from Stillwater High School. Career Ritter met his bandmates while he was bouncing a party in middle school. After Jesse Tabish quit the band, and with the additions of Mike Kennerty and Chris Gaylor, The All-American Rejects were picked up by Doghouse Records, and later DreamWorks Records, and finally signed with the major label Interscope Records. In early 2018, the band left Interscope, and is currently unsigned. The All-American Rejects have released four albums to date, and have sold over 10 million albums worldwide and 4 million singles. Ritter has appeared in television series and films such as House (2007), The House Bunny (2008), Betas (2013–14), and Parenthood (2013–15). On November 5, 2013, Ritter released the song "Air" as a solo song to help "ride between the Rejects' next record", which was featured on Parenthood. Shortly after the release of "Air" Tyson wrote the song "Collide" which was also featured on Parenthood. The song was never released on the market but is still available on sites like YouTube. Ritter's next projects included a role in the John Cusack film Love and Mercy (2014). He had also been cast in the lead role of singer Gregg Allman in the biopic Midnight Rider, directed by Randall Miller, but the film was halted in production, and ultimately cancelled, due to the death of camera assistant Sarah Jones. In 2015, he had a supporting role in the comedy-drama film Miss You Already, which starred Toni Collette and Drew Barrymore. On February 23, 2018, Ritter revealed via his personal Twitter that he is in the process of "putting together a record and a band of [his] own". Personal life Ritter and actress Elena Satine were engaged in April 2013 and married on New Year's Eve that year. He has been best friends with bandmate Nick Wheeler ever since they met in high school. Ritter is an investor in various tech companies including Hooch App. Equipment Ritter likes to use Fender bass guitars. He had previously used Epiphone Flying V or Epiphone Explorer basses during the era of The All-American Rejects (album), until he started to favor a Fender Precision Bass and started using them more often in his songs. Ritter was also seen using a Gibson Thunderbird bass on their early tours for Move Along and also with a rare Jackson Guitars V Bass. He then later used Fender Jaguar Bass guitars for later tours before switching back to Fender Precision Basses
