About Tanner Walling
Never one to follow what everyone else is doing, Tanner Walling is a sixteen-year-old author, songwriter, podcast host, and entrepreneur hailing from Massachusetts. Though he’s young, he has proved age to be just a number throughout his various ambitious projects.
Just shy of his fourteenth birthday he published his debut novel, Fury of the Storm, the first in a four-part disaster thriller series for middle school readers. His writing quickly became known among readers for its tightly-choreographed action, sweeping settings, and exhilarating pacing. In 2017, he only furthered his foray into publishing with the establishment of his 4Eleven Publishing brand focused on short fiction and media creation for an increasingly digital age. With books and short stories sold in dozens of countries across every inhabited continent, Tanner is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.
After writing songs for years, Tanner leaped into music under the name of UNDERINFLUENCE, serving as a songwriter and vocalist for electronic music duo Mianation and hip-hop duo Scene III. Founding the 4Eleven Records label for these projects, his music quickly saw streams from across the world including Brazil, France, Belgium, Finland, and Panama.
With two years of high school still ahead of him and a variety of increasingly ambitious projects planned, Tanner has solidified that he’s only on the rise.
