He became a conductor and later in 1919 he became assistant director for a New York orchestra that toured England and played for King George V. Tyer's songs, especially "Panama, "Maori" and "Trocha", were popular with black bands. Both "Panama" and Maori" were recorded by Duke Ellington for Brunswick Records in 1928. Tyers was one of the first black composers to join ASCAP.
