Tanya O’Callaghan is an established freelance musician / bassist, speaker and activist with an eclectic impressive career to date.
Tanya began making a mark for herself on the Irish music scene early in her career, always playing with multiple Irish bands at once and regularly guesting in house bands for many high-profile Irish TV shows.
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 and written with legends such as Whitesnake, Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), 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…
While the Irish rhythm technician is known for powering through propulsive rock and metal tempos, her dynamic talents extend far beyond any single genre.
A whirlwind of energy, positivity and determination, it’ll come as no surprise that Tanya is also a speaker, writer and lifelong advocate and activist for animal, human, social 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!
