Here’s more about Tanner.
* He hails from Statesboro, Ga., and is now Nashville based, performing as both a solo artist and a duo.
* According to his website bio, he began playing guitar and writing songs at age 8.
* In 2014, he formed a rock band called Half-Seas Over that played gigs throughout the south over the next five years.
* Half-Seas Over released a three-song EP called “The Hideout Sessions” in 2017 and a live album the following year. Tanner wrote the group’s songs.
* The band parted ways in 2019 and Tanner moved to Colorado, continuing to pursue a solo career.
* While there, he also joined forces with Jack Stein to form a duo called Stealin’ Hearts.
* He’s since moved to Nashville and continues to play gigs, both solo and as part of the duo.
* Tanner released a pair of singles in 20212 — “Tangled” and “Love Sick Fool.” He has two other songs available on streaming sites — “Red Eye” and “Amity” from a 2020 appearance at a radio station.
* He hasn’t released it yet, but Tanner posted a song to Instagram called “When Grown Men Cry” that he wrote after losing a good friend, Will Smith, in a May 2021 car crash.
* Says Tanner: “I’ve heard songwriters say ‘the song wrote itself” or ‘It wasn’t me that wrote this one.’ I had never fully understood this until about a week after his funeral when I sat down and this song came out just as fast as I could put it on to paper. When I got to the end it felt as though I came back down to earth from somewhere else, and I was all alone again with this song in front of me. No re-writes. No revisions. Just done. This is the last song that me and Will Smith wrote together — ‘When Grown Men Cry.'”
* He describes his music as his “own original style of soulful southern rock.”
