Tanner Azzinnaro has put the start of his teenage years to good use. On his twelfth birthday, he received his first guitar. In just over two years, Spokane native Tanner Azzinnaro (pronounced "as-in-arrow") has become a proficient songwriter and performer, writing about his Christian beliefs and life experiences. His YouTube videos got the attention of some important people, landing his first movie soundtrack contribution last summer! You can hear him sing "The Story Behind The Girl" on the NBC TV movie "A Walk In My Shoes."

Not only can he write and perform, he's equally comfortable chatting to an audience of thousands, as evidenced by his appearance on Spokane's 103.1 KCDA Local Lounge this past Sunday...perhaps he has a future in radio! Besides hosting the show, he performed seven original songs live in the studio and spun his soundtrack gem.
