â€œI love playing the guitar, because I can express my emotions and feelings through the music that I play. This is the true reason that I decided to play music because it brought joy to me and to everyone around me.â€œÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Tallan Noble Latz
Watch Tallan Performs and talk about his career!
Itâ€™s been some time since Tallan Noble Latz was featured here at Rivenmasterâ€™s Place. In fact four years since his â€œBlues in Tennis Shoesâ€ article published. While he has appeared three times since that first article, itâ€™s been far too long since we have been able to bring you a full update regarding T-Manâ€™s musical adventures and accomplishments.
Tallan, who just turned 15, stays extremely busy performing at festivals, performing arts centers and theaters across the Midwest. Tallan has also been headlining many charity events raising awareness and money for a number of organizations!
During the past four years Tallan has been honing his craft, working harder than ever to define his sound and guitar skills, and most importantly working on his stage presence. Tallanâ€™s performances have been dubbed a â€œMust See, One of a Kindâ€ concert event! To maintain that status, Tallan always gives 110% at every performance which is the reason his reputation is spreading so rapidly.
Tallanâ€™s musical direction in the last few years has evolved from Blues to a more roots Rock, guitar driven sound. Tallan calls his music, guitar driven blues infused progressive rock and roll. This evolution has come very naturally to Tallan and everyday he evolves more and more into his own style and sound.
Tallan has worked hard to become the package that concert goers want to see. This has been made evident by Tallan being handpicked to open for many big name artists. He has had the opportunity lately to open for bands such as: Kenny Wayne Shepherd at Buddy Guyâ€™s in Chicago, IL; The Los Lonely Boys at the Arcada Theater in St. Charles, IL. Heâ€™s even been selected to open for some musical legends like BB King at the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts in Bloomington, IL. In addition, Tallan opened for a legend that is no longer with us, Johnny Winter at Turner Hall in Milwaukee, WI, just a month before he passed.
