“a true musical jack-of-all-trades…an intriguing record that ranges across
various styles.” – American Songwriter
“a dizzying journey into the region somewhere between jangly alt-country and
basement indie rock.” – NPR World Cafe “Next 20”
capable of memorable work.” – Paste
Tanton’s “crisp, transcendent voice” was recently featured on NPR’s Song Of The Day, following his two separate pieces last month as the #1 artist of NPR World Cafe’s “Next 20.” Under The Radar says,” ‘Freeclouds’ is a moody and earthen gem,” proclaiming Tanton’s “verdant tenor deserves your attention,” while BlackBook notes, “Tanton skillfully weaves his own bittersweet tales – all steeped in nostalgic Americana – over eclectic samples and twanging guitar chords.” In addition to recording and co-writing one song on Marissa Nadler’s well-received 2011 album, Tanton has recorded albums by George Lewis Jr. (Twin Shadow) and Drug Rug among others, and is the newest active member of Baltimore-based Lower Dens.
