I don't want you to read some scripted biography of "who Taryn is". I would rather you get to know me- the real me. I am just a normal girl from Washington. The thing that sets me apart- the thing that makes me who I am- is my passion for music. As the youngest of four children, I was always copying my brothers and sister. After watching my sister perform, I got the bug. I was seven the first time I walked out on a stage in front of an audience. That little taste was all it took. Thankfully, I was blessed with the most supportive parents imaginable. I begged them to sign me up for anything that involved music: voice lessons, recording studio sessions, theater musicals, guitar lessons, piano lessons, and even fronted my first band at eight years old. I just couldn't get enough- and still can't!
I was fortunate enough to tour with a successful Honky Tonk band starting at the age of 15. It taught me a lot about what it takes to be on the road and to pursue a career in this crazy industry. I released my debut CD shortly after, in the summer of 2007. At 17, I started my own band and started focusing on what I stood for as an artist. In 2010, I released an EP recorded in Nashville with a Grammy Award winning producer. It was then that I was able to start taking on bigger shows and getting opportunities to "hang with the big boys". I have had the honor of sharing the stage with many artists that I look up to, including Randy Travis, Eric Church, Love & Theft, Jason Michael Carroll, Neal McCoy, and Joe Nichols.
Currently, I am living in California, performing, and continuing to work on building my fan base. On October 1, 2016, I released my newest EP, "Break Some Rules". It was my first pop project and I'm very proud of my new sound. It was heavily influenced by the rock genre as well, but you can still hear my country roots in my lyrics and songwriting style.
I am humbled by the fact that I have been able to accomplish things I would've once only dreamed of doing. I have had the honor and pleasure of sharing the stage with so many Greats of the music industry. I have brushed elbows with legends as I struggle to work my way up to the top, just as they did. Our paths in life are never for sure, but I will keep pursuing this passion as long as life will let me.
