We had the good fortune of connecting with Tanner Agpoon and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tanner, what is the most important factor behind your success?
I think the most important factor behind my success and the success of my art would be to bring more light into the universe. There is a lot going on right now in the world, and there always will be, but I hope to add more love and positivity into the mix.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Right now, I am really into trying to blend elements and techniques of different genres into single tracks. I think there are a lot of people doing these sorts of things right now, but I believe every person is a different person. With that, every artist brings something new to the table and my life experiences give me a lil’ different flavor than anyone else. I have a couple projects coming out in 2022 that I am super pumped about, along with some clothing ideas I have been wanting to pursue for quite some time now. I am continuing to learn as I go.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
There’s a lot of awesome spots in LA. I personally love taking my friends that are visiting to the food trucks around the city. Never a bad idea. I also usually take them to the beach and to hike because we don’t have anything like that where I’m from. As far as everything else goes, the city and the people here do enough that you don’t have to say much about how fun this place can be.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am without my friends and family. My mom and sister were always my biggest supporters and I know they will be throughout my whole career. Huge shouts to them. As far as friends, my best friend Jack Tulloch was the one that really introduced me to making music and his work ethic was definitely a huge inspiration and push for me. Still, it wouldn’t be enough to say just those three. My entire family and just about every friend/person I have met so far has played a role in helping me to where I am today. I couldn’t thank these people enough.
