Tanya began crafting her skills at home making a mark for herself on the Irish music scene early in her career, playing with just about every band around and regularly guesting in house bands for many high-profile Irish TV shows and artists.

Never afraid to make a leap of faith, Tanya’s determination, passion and talent began to pay off the further she spread her wings internationally. She has toured, recorded, written and worked with legends such as Maynard James Keenan (Tool/APC), Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) Steven Adler (Guns N’ Roses) Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme), The Riverdance, The Voice, Orianthi, Michael Angelo Batio, Kevin Godley, Sharon Corr (The Corrs) and David Grey, to name a few…

A whirlwind of energy, positivity and determination, it’ll come as no surprise that Tanya is a keynote speaker and a lifelong advocate and activist for animal, human and environmental issues. A force to be reckoned – it’s fair to say that this Irish lass has made her mark on the music scene both at home and internationally.
