BIO My names Tanner Reese Gardner but you can just call me Reese. I’m a 22 year old up and coming hip hop artist from Oregon. I produce beats, rap and I’m beginning to get comfortable singing. I’m just now beginning to release music for the first time. It’s been quite the process to get everything I need to create at an efficient level. I make all of my music on Ableton with the Ableton Push One but I plan on upgrading as soon as I can.
Top 5 Influences? I grew up listening to Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Linkin Park but I’d say the artists who have influenced me the most are probably Kanye West, Mac Miller, all of the Pro Era guys, Ab-Soul, and Atmosphere. Also my homie dicey produces amazing beats and he’ll be on my mixtape.
What got you into music? There aren’t very many popular artists in Oregon so mostly the people who helped build my confidence to actually pursue creating music are the people I first started freestyling with. My closest friends Jacob Kasten and Carson French. Kasten produces music and creates his own tracks as well and Carson is one of the best rappers I’ve ever met. These guy’s are my best friends and if something becomes of this I owe everything to them.
Anything to tell your fans? If there’s one thing I could tell my future fans, it would be : I make music to make time stop and take you away from the world for a little bit. Something that can engulf you and make you not overthink things as much. If you’re a depressed person, I want you to listen to my music and not feel like that anymore. At least temporarily while the music is playing. Everything I make is to help me yes but most of all it’s to help other people and do what the artists I listed above did for me.
Biggest Goals for 2017? My biggest goal for 2017 is to create as much as possible for my first mixtape, so in 2018 when it’s finished I can release it and begin this long journey. I have a plan and I’m going to execute it. So keep a close eye on me.
Anything else? oh and also I plan on creating my own website by the end of December but for now the best thing to do if you like what you hear is follow my twitter account I just made
