“I’m the baby girl out of a family of six kids and my dad was a pastor and very musical – he played piano and guitar and even made me my first guitar in a bathtub when I was 15. Looking back I am so thankful for my family. As I was working on my debut release, my father, who had cirrhosis of the liver, passed away. My dad was everything to me, he taught me at a young age to really believe in what I sing, to be humble, and to be a fighter. When he died, it nearly broke me. That’s why the EP is dedicated to him. Above All is directly about him because above everything, he was there for me and loved me.”
Above All, features six songs written by Krissy Krissy, with the running theme of love. The great love of a father-daughter relationship is represented in the title track. Jealous love is the focus of “Suspicious,” which is the second single from the EP. “Your Love” is about finding happiness in that ultimate love. “Broken Glass” is about loving and being yourself through difficult times. “Maybe I” touches on wishing you could’ve loved someone a little bit more. And the first single and video, “Dream,” is about the love of music and living out your dreams. Watch the video on YouTube, “Dream”
Singer/songwriter Tanner Walle honed his performance chops in Lawrence, KS, a college town located just 30 miles west of Kansas City. During his tenure, Tanner shared the stage with Wilco, Kelly Clarkson, Sara Bareilles, Neko Case, and Matt Nathanson. It was also in Lawrence where Walle began his recording career, first with his full-length release It Was followed by the sophomore The Future of Tape. After extensive touring in clubs and theaters throughout Kansas and the Midwest, Tanner relocated to New York City in Summer 2007.
Upon arrival in NYC, Tanner continued performing throughout New York and the Northeast. In Spring 2012, and with the help of his dedicated fan base, Tanner held a Kickstarter campaign to acquire the funds necessary to release his third album entitled Shelf Life. For the CD release, Tanner sold out Rockwood Stage 2 while donating 100% of the proceeds to Education Through Music.
Shelf Life represents the hard work and refinement Tanner has cultivated since his move to New York City just six years ago. Throughout the album, Tanner's glossy vocals drape a clean and progressively folky instrumentation, with stories of love and lust, and the perils of a quarter-life identity. Thus far, Shelf Life has garnered attention throughout the U.S. and Europe, attracting promotional use on NBC's 'Today', MTV, Warner, 20th Century Fox, and Canon.
