Singer, songwriter, musician, performer. “Music is part of me - it is who I am.”

Tanja has always been musically gifted. From a young age, she was singing, performing, and playing a variety of instruments.  Throughout the course of her musical career, Tanja has won over the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life; performing at a variety of venues, making loads of public appearances, all the while recording new music.

Born in Melkbosstrand, Cape Town, South Africa, Tanja relocated to the quieter, scenic Garden Route. This active performer can be seen at various shows and music festivals, weddings and special occasions throughout the Garden Route and beyond.

She was playing keyboard since the age of seven and took classes in both music and modern dancing.
She continued her studies in both these fields and started to perform as keyboard player and backing vocalist for different bands since 1999 where they performed at weddings and other functions.

Spurred on by the positive reaction of her audiences, Tanja decided to give her music career her all.

Seeing that Tanja was subjected to so many music styles during her music education and performances, the only choice she had to make was to decide what type of music she wanted to dedicate her energy to. She subsequently released her first CD in 2009 (The CD includes the music video: “Te vergeefs.”) “Te vergeefs” can be viewed on KykNet and YouTube.

No specific sound was decided upon beforehand. Each song was taken in its ‘raw’ state; the music and feeling were built around it. Her original work in both Afrikaans and English, fall into the Pop/Rock genre. Later singles are also available. See album

Book Tanja for any event with live band, duo or for solo performances.
