Tanya Tassi began entertaining at the age of three.  She knew early in life that her passions were performance and advocacy.  While in middle school, Tanya formed and managed a small troupe of young adults, performing at acute care hospitals, veterans homes, and assisted living facilities throughout the State of Wisconsin.  She continued to manage the troupe during her teens and twenties, bringing music to thousands of older adults, military personnel, and chronically ill patients.  By high school Tanya was writing her own music and recording radio and television voice overs and jingles locally and nationally.

She spent several years studying the art of recording and songwriting in Nashville, TN at the famous Belmont University.  During her tenure in the south, Tanya learned from some of the best singers and songwriters in the business; working with musicians such as Sawyer Brown, Glen Campbell, and Wynonna Judd.  Upon her return to the Midwest, Tanya, auditioned for and won a spot in a small choir backing up Ray Charles during one of his final tours, "The Gospel According to Ray Charles."  She has also performed with musical greats Kenny Rogers, Barbara Mandrell, and Boy Howdy.

Tanya is a proud Branson Superstars alumni, playing the roles of Patsy Cline and Reba McEntire.  Upon completion of her contract with Branson Superstars, Tanya created, fronted, and managed the popular variety band "Straight Up" for seven years.  The group was often in high demand, booking shows at casinos, resorts, festivals, and theaters throughout the Midwest. She has appeared in front of as many as 50,000 people and her voice has aired nationally on communication venues such as ABC, FOX, NBC, and Lifetime. 

She is often asked to sing the National Anthem and has performed it for an impressive list of occasions and sporting teams. Tanya frequently supports events for veterans, rescue animals, and the LGBTQ community by performing at no cost.  She believes in giving back to her community. 

Tanya resides in Southern California.  In her spare time, she enjoys spoiling her rescue pets, traveling, and performing with local community theater and musical groups.
