Every life is a story. Tanya Godsey's began in the wide open plains of Texas. There with the dust and storms she was born. And with a passion for singing that began at age 2, a piano in one corner and a guitar close behind, she began writing songs about life and faith. Two decades later, opportunity came calling in Nashville after she won AGMA's International CCM Song of the Year and was invited to work with Producer Reed Arvin (Rich Mullins, Amy Grant). Nashville became the backdrop for her first full-length album Nothing Less Than Everything, a musical commentary surrounding the themes of total surrender and trust.
2 Albums later she is a verifiable Tennessean. Her most recent album, Telling Time was released to the praise of both critics and listeners and focuses on the journey of life "from everyday to eternity." The official video for the album's first single "White Page" has been viewed in over 40 countries and the song has resonated with audiences everywhere including the UK where it reached #9 on Christian radio. Her self-penned songs "You Make Everything Beautiful" and "White Page", also recently garnered the attention of the respected International Songwriting Competition having been recognized in their semi-finals. Yet these milestones are merely broad reflections of what Tanya believes the essence of her calling is: " to offer biblically inspired hope and truth that connects deeply within the heart of the listener." It is love and compassion for people and their unique stories that remains at the core of Tanya's calling to add her voice and songs to the conversation of our culture.
Tanya is thrilled to be in the writing and creative planning stages of preparing to release her third musical statement. Tanya is in the process of recording her 3rd project with Producer Ben Shive (Andrew Peterson, Ellie Holcomb, Sara Groves) whom she collaborated with for her 2014 Christmas Single, "In One".
