written to speak tour

“Tanner brings a contagious energy and joy to his performances.
He performed at our Church owned coffee shop and was well received by everyone, including people who didn't plan on listening to a spoken word artist that night!
He's the perfect artist to invite friends to enjoy a night out that's filled with hope, humor, and fun.
We can't wait to have him back!”

-Gabe Kasper
Pastor of University Lutheran Chapel
