Gary Rex Tanner is a phenomenal singer/songwriter in the tradition of Leon Russell, Jim Croce, Willie Nelson, Randy Newman and Bob Dylan. Combining smart lyrics with smart-ass attitude and fine instrumentation from his music business friends, Tanner lays down an original flow of witty, funny and sometimes outrageous music that delights listeners young and old. Don't expect to find this artist's name appearing on any public venues. He has produced his music outside the music business's established parameters and remains somewhat a recluse, choosing running his plumbing business to joining ranks with today's public performers. But although Tanner remains aloof from the daily workings of the entertainment world, he remains an enigma, faithfully answering any personal e-mails about himself or his music. Truly an original, don't miss the opportunity to own his albums.
