Tanya grew up in a musical family. The music eased her away from super-shy into bravely loving people. She started writing at age 11, singing and playing the piano. She moved all over the U.S. and picked up diverse musical influences everywhere. She has served as a worship leader in several churches and recorded 7 projects, all indie and toured on and off. In all her musical endeavors, songwriting and sharing original music is her main passion. Why does she do music?? Because she cannot not do music. Music is a vulnerable business, but Tanya believes the audience is worth the risk she takes and that the music may be just what they need.
