Some may state that People Of The Parallel is one of Nashville’s best-kept secrets.

Yet still undiscovered here is an Artist that has been able to tap into the Dubstep and EDM genre and throw an unforgettably unique twist into the mix. When asked where did People Of The Parallel (Justin Tallman) get sound? He responded with a laugh followed by an unforgettable smile, after a brief pause, he then said: “with my mouth”. When asked if he could elaborate, he replied with, “all of my sounds are original and created from scratch; I make everything from the ground up. The whole song by itself was just me beatboxing and humming melodies and bass lines to capture an idea at first. Once I like the arrangement, I choose my instruments wisely and overdub what my original idea was.” 


What made you decide to choose this method of recording your music? “I feel it’s more natural to do it this way, instead of wasting time pondering on an idea that I might forget about if I overthink it too much. I tend to overthink things too much.” 


Upon listening to his works; it is quite obvious he knows how to deliver a quality of sound that is on the level with the current industry standards. The music has a beautiful yet eccentric tone to it it is elevating, Uplifting, intelligent, and sophisticated. He believes his sound came from a mixture of everything that he has was exposed to as a child. 


He states that “when you’re a kid; you pretty much listen to what your parents listen to, and as you get older, whether you want to admit it or not, those songs stay with you forever.” He then stated that “If I were to compile a list it would go on forever and in many different directions. Being introduced to so much music growing up helped me develop an ear for what works and what doesn’t in the music I Produce and Create.”
