Tanya is a Nashville based Singer-Songwriter and Musician. She recently released her third independent, full length album, Love Lines The Last Horizon, to wide critical acclaim. The story and message of the new album were marked by the unanticipated events that occurred in the early morning hours of June 30th, 2015, on the first day of recording. You can read the story in Tanya's own very personal words here.
Yet even in the midst of a challenging season, song stories of hope, redemption and even celebration were birthed. As Tanya states: "This recording captures both the light and the dark places in the process of learning how to take a seat at the celebration of life. There is a beautiful chorus of hope being sung over us because of the Gospel and we're invited to join in and sing redemption's song.
Produced by Ben Shive (Colony House, Ellie Holcomb, Mercy Me), Love Lines The Last Horizon is as colorful and true as collaborations come. From sweeping cinematic moments to lyrics that combine both truth and the vulnerable human experience, the scale of the album is as wide as the emotional delivery of each song.
Tanya is an Artist offering the world a glimmer of hope through songs mined from the depths of her own history with God, people and the world.

What Others Are Saying
“We were blessed by the stories, the music and the heart of Tanya Godsey. My only disappointement was that we didn’t have her come sooner! Our church was very blessed by Tanya’s ministry and we hope it works out for her to come again.”

“Tanya’s visit to our church was such a gift. Not only is she a talented songwriter and musician but she is also a wonderful storyteller and we enjoyed her stories and words of encouragement as much as her music. We have a large creative community at our church and I loved the way Tanya brought the audience into the artistic process behind the songs. Our musicians and artists were especially blessed by that behind the scenes view of her music. It was an amazing night and I continue to hear stories about how Tanya’s music is touching people in our church body. We would have her back in a heartbeat!”

“Tanya is a shepherd that speaks to the soul. Passionately biblical and contemplative, it is impossible to sit and listen to her without being drawn to the truth and heart of who God is. She is the rare hybrid of artist and minister who can go far beyond simply entertaining and leave an audience with a lasting spiritual deposit.”
— Kevin Perry - Worship & Arts Pastor - Fellowship Bible Church Murfreesboro, TN
“Leading the people of God in the genuine and powerful worship of who He is, is one of the greatest gifts that God gives in the body of Christ. A person who has this gift has been given a beautiful thing! When God also gives this person the ability to write God-honoring songs that minister deeply to people on a spiritual and emotional level and see the big picture of the kingdom, you truly have a person whose maturity can influence many! Tanya Godsey is this person! As her Pastor I have seen up close all that I have described above and I am encouraged that others will be exposed to her ministry!”
— Jeff Patton - Teaching Pastor - Fellowship Bible Church Murfreesboro, TN & Family Life Marriage Conference Speaker
“Tanya Godsey is the real deal...the complete package. Lyrics that are both aching and uplifting, chords and rhythms from a huge color palette. And the voice! So warm and true, you just wonder where she’s been all these years.”
— Scott Dente - Global Genius Productions - Out of The Grey
Are you a creative person with a desire to thrive in the purposes God has for both your heart and your art? Do you often feel overwhelmed as you try to juggle life, family, work and your God-given gifts? Would you benefit from the voice of an experienced creative speaking into the dreams and callings God has placed on your life so you can steward them with courage, excellence and conviction?
For the last six years I have been privately approached by creative people to shepherd them in their respective callings and projects. I slipped into this role without actively seeking it but it has been one of my FAVORITE ways to watch God work in the lives of others!
If we agree on working together I offer 1 hour consultations for ($50) via skype or an in person option for Nashville locals.
