Tanner Walle heading to NYC

29 June 2007

For the last five years, Tanner Walle has worked to make a name for himself in Lawrence, with his jazzy pop that morphed more into a singer/songwriter/electronica mix for his last album.

Now, Walle is moving to New York City to try to impress "bigger wigs," as he puts it.

He's playing a farewell show at 9 tonight at the Granada, 1020 Mass.

In this week's Pulse Podcast, Walle talks about coming of age as a musician in Lawrence, and why he's headed to NYC. You also can hear a couple of acoustic tunes, as well as another off his most recent album, "The Future of Tape."
