Hailing from Ardara, Tanya McCole has wowed audiences at home and abroad with her vocal style, songwriting capabilities and flair for interpreting songs of others. 2009 saw the release of her first album Love, Hate and The Blues which was well received by audiences and radio stations alike.
Having sung blues, soul, jazz and rock with some of the top acts in this country including Sharon Shannon, Mundy and Shane MacGowan Tanya found herself returning to her roots of folk and classic country whilst discovering Americana along the way. The result was the 2018 album Because Of You revealing a new stripped back sound showcasing her distinctive voice and songwriting ability. That same year she fulfilled a lifelong dream touring with Grammy award winner John Prine.
“The world should know about Tanya McCole. I love her voice. She is authentic in every way – and a great road buddy too.” – John Prine
