Tall Black Guy

Tall Black Guy

African American and 6 foot 5 in stature, Terrel Wallace’s production alias of Tall Black Guy is one of the most descriptive artist names in recent memory. A native of Detroit, Wallace made his bow in 2011 with a series of downtempo beat excursions, showcasing his love of Hip-Hop, Jazz, Soul and everything in between. With records such as 2012′s lush ‘Tall Black Guy Vs. Al Green’, he quickly started earning fans all over-with the likes of Gilles Peterson, Jazzy Jeff and Leffto amongst them. Bringing something fresh to the beats scene via an uncommon level of musiciality and technical proficiency, Wallace’s early work hinted at tantalising potential. Now living in the UK, Wallace still keenly feels the legacy of his hometown in his richly expressive music.
