Today we’d like to introduce you to Tanner Howe.
Tanner, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
The beginning of music in my life has to start with my Dad. My Dad filled our house with music growing up being a singer/songwriter himself and I was his biggest fan. He along with my mom helped us have a deep appreciation and love for music and inspired us to share that with other people. We even briefly had a family band where my siblings, parents and I all performed together at school fundraisers and barbecues. But it wasn’t until high school that I started to take music more seriously. I started writing music with my sister, putting up Youtube music covers, and performing in high school programs. The more I dove into music and developed as an artist, I realized that there is nothing else I’d rather do. As far as we know, this is the one life we are given to live on this earth and it only made sense in my mind to spend my time pursuing what I love most, Music.
This year has been a huge year for my musical career and it seems like my life has been building up to moments that are just now being realized. This past May, I released my first solo album and the reaction has been incredible. I’ve also released 3 music videos and have more new music to be released before the year ends. It’s been amazing to see my ideas and thoughts become a reality and to feel so supported by the music community. It has encouraged me to continue to create and release more music. As an independent artist, I am feeling less alone and more empowered to take matters into my own hands. I’ve come to realize more than ever before that the independent artist has the power to make an impact but it takes self-determination and discipline to actually put in the work and make things happen. I know it won’t be a straight shot to stardom, but little by little, I am gaining the confidence that becoming a successful music artist is not so far fetched.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I write and produce music and create video and picture content to go along with that music. Every song is a piece of who I am and my hope is that my fans connect to the experiences and feelings in the songs. I create music first because it makes me happy and if my stories and experiences expressed through music can touch others in any way that is just icing on the cake. And if you are lucky enough to get paid to do something you love never let it go. What sets me apart from other music artists is that I can’t really be put into one genre box. Every song I put out is completely different than the last. I explore genres like Pop, Hip-hop, R&B, Rock, and yes even Country. I love listening to all different styles of music and it has influenced how I make music. For me, it is all about expressing how I feel at the moment. I think we finally live in an age that is less concerned about genre and more concerned about it just being good music. And I believe that as long as it comes from an honest and real place, the world is ready for artists to blur genre lines.
How can artists connect with other artists?
Put yourself out there and collaborate with other artists. A lot of times as artists we separate ourselves because of our egos or fears. But collaboration has lead to some of my best experiences I’ve ever had in my musical career. It also has lead me to so many more opportunities. Don’t wait for people to reach out to you. You have to be the one to reach out and make what you want to happen. Start small and keep building from till it’s something great.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
My music is on all music platforms like Spotify, iTunes, and Amazon Music. I also just released 3 music videos this year on my YouTube channel. Following me on social media, sharing my work and coming to live show is always huge support and greatly appreciated.
