TANKSLEY is an artist, songwriter, musician, and producer of sound that blends soul, hip-hop, and rock influences. His eclectic taste in music is echoed in his raspy vocals and effortless falsetto; soothing and inspiring. This melodic, self-taught multi-instrumentalist was born in Syracuse NY, and started taking music seriously during high school as a means of escape and self-expression. Currently, he is based on the east coast.  TANKSLEY can bring it with or without instruments and his music is a reminder that there is nothing better than being authentic and transparent as you follow your dreams. 


TANKSLEY can always be found spending countless hours in the studio exploring new avenues of music… pushing the envelope. The eccentricity and perfectionism in his creativity flow into his live performances where TANKSLEY brings it all whether solo or with his incredible band. His first EP is scheduled for release in 2020.


TANKSLEY, who has shared the stage with grammy award-winning artist Lalah Hathaway has headlined at numerous universities, musical festivals, private events, and the New York State Fair. Venues in NYC include Webster Hall, Toshi’s, the legendary Minton’s Playhouse in Harlem, The Groove, and Nublu NYC.
