“Luminous, Evocative, Poignant and Soulful” are words spoken about this talented young singer, actress, dancer and choreographer. Originally from Toronto, Taryn has studied dance, theatre and voice with acclaimed New York and Vermont vocal teacher Bill Reed and at the renowned Circle in the Square Theatre School in New York City. After years of playing leading roles in American Musical Theatre, she returned to Vermont to focus on her love of singing, playing on her considerable talent as a jazz and cabaret vocalist. In addition to her velvet-smooth vocalist performances, she also works locally and regionally as a dance teacher, choreographer and stage and film actor. She was showered with rave reviews this past Summer for her lead performance as Sally Bowles in “Cabaret” at the Lost Nation Theater in Montpelier.
In addition to her sweet vocals on the past five Rick & The All-Star Ramblers’ CD projects, Taryn has recorded two of her own jazz CDs and frequently performs with the very fab jazz vocal trio, The Blue Gardenias.
