Personal music history

Since I was 4 years old, I’m playing the piano (classical), I’ve learned playing guitar on my own when I was 8. I started playing the drums in my first band when I was 12 and started singing at the age 9/10. From that moment on, I had my first gigs with many coverbands, or playing alone... I started writing originals at the age of 14... in 2008 I joined the biggest coverband in Austria called „T-NG“ where I was the female frontsinger for 8 years now ( 6 of them together with Georg, that’s why we know each other for many years now) In 2016 we both left the band for focusing on serenity and me, for concentrating on my solo project called „Tasha“, with which I released the debut „A long way“ in 2013. Since 2010 I joined Serenity for many single gigs and since Clementine left the Band in 2015 I am the fixed official guest singer on their Liveshows. I also had the pleasure of being part of Serenity’s latest Release Codex Atlanticus, where I did some backing vocals and also the Duett „Sail“, a song I’ve written for my  Solo album „A long way“ and which has been re-arranged into a special version for Serenity.

Goals for the future

At the moment, I started writing the songs for my second album, which should be finished and released in 2016. I also would love to stay in the Serenity-family, as their official guestsinger, touring with them and just having a great time together.
