::UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE:: New track to hear!
Recently had a chance to lay down some bare-boned tracks with bass player Justin Hosek. No, this is not a final track for the album, but something for you to hear in the meantime. Please do me a favor and spread the link to your friends. Hope you love it.

I'm Tanner Walle and I'd like to create something beautiful with you.
It's been nearly four years since my last studio album, and the pressure for a new release from my fans, friends and family has been increasingly persistent. Unfortunately, the funding has not.
I want nothing more than to finally put down four years' worth of my heart and soul for you to hear. It's been quite a ride thus far, and it's time you hear the sonic map the ride has drawn.
I've spent nearly fifteen years of my life singing, but since my move to NYC, I've found my true voice. What you'll hear on "Shelf Life" is a collection of stripped down vocal-driven folk pieces. I'm proud of my previous works, both 2004's "It Was," and 2007's "The Future of Tape," but those were different times, and I truly feel that "Shelf Life" is what I've slowly become.
Our goal to fund "Shelf Life," which includes engineering, mixing, production and all the bells and whistles that follow, is $5000. Any help at all – whether it's a few bucks or half your paycheck – would be wildly appreciated. I really want you all to believe in "Shelf Life" as much as I do, and helping me make it happen would be a glorious feat. All hail team work, and THANK YOU!
