Tanner Mackey

My name is Tanner Mackey, and I've been playing instruments for as long as I can remember. I was formally trained in percussion through my education, starting in 7th grade, and a general passion for music sprouted from that. I started drum set and guitar lessons when I was 16 and by the time I was 18 I was teaching them. I am self taught on piano, bass, and vocally.

I attended Belmont University for two years as a music business major (then shortly a philosophy major) before leaving to pursue music, as I recognized my inability to truly follow my artistic interests while living under such restrictive conditions and accumulating college debt. While there, I received drum lessons from Zoro which I feel further cemented my ability to play drums at a high level of proficiency. I currently live in Springdale Arkansas with my family, as I save up money to return to Nashville, and used the opportunity to create my first album. I plan to move back to Nashville to pursue music with other musicians I met in my 2 years there, so expect to hear many other things from me.

As for my album, The Mentor Or The Charlatan, I worked on it for 6 months and created it in my bedroom. All the sounds you hear were created by me EXCEPT the thunder in "The Way" Is Through Our Subservience (Yeah, Right) which I downloaded off the internet. The second Thunder-like sound you hear in that song IS my creation though, as I'm using an E-bow on an electric guitar.

I would love to hear any questions or comments about the album, my music, or me in general, so please try to get in touch if you have any!!
