About Taryn

Highly acclaimed Australian singer and ukulele player, based in London.
Public liability insurance of £1 million

Taryn Ryan is a multi-disciplined Australian performer, skilled as a singer, voiceover actor, and cabaret artist. In the UK she has performed at leading music venues CRAZY COQS (Live At Zedél) and THE PHEASANTRY (Pizza Express Live), as well as numerous bars, restaurants and private venues across Greater London. As a cabaret performer Taryn has toured Australia and the UK with John Thorn's LOOKING FOR LAWSON and BACKGROUND BOY, appeared as a guest act in MARCEL LUCONT'S CABARET FANTASTIQUE, and is the newest addition to the acclaimed vocal trio THE GIRLS FROM OZ. Her first full-length solo work THE NAKED TRUTH earned her a nomination for Best Cabaret at the 2015 Perth FRINGE WORLD Festival and was included in the official selection for the 2016 Melbourne Cabaret Festival. A versatile performer, Taryn is as comfortable singing solo as she is fronting a 9-piece jazz band or full orchestra. When not in full cabaret mode, Taryn breathes life into covers tunes for weddings, parties, and corporate events. She is an accomplished ukuleleist and generally performs solo with her beloved ukulele Delilah, or on occasion with backing tracks when a bigger party vibe is called for. She is also available as a duo (with guitar) or with a larger band upon request.

Taryn was superb, I really couldn't have asked for more. She exceeded my expectations at my wedding. She was really flexible and even learned some new music so I could walk down the aisle to my dream song. She also provided so much reassurance in the run up to the big day by sending me some demos so I could get an idea of what the songs would sound like on the ukulele. When it came to the actual performance she played beautifully and her voice was so lovely, it really set the perfect tone and atmosphere for the marriage ceremony. I'm so chuffed that I found Taryn, I couldn't have imagined my wedding day going any other way.

Her voice and tone strike the perfect balance between gravitas and vulnerability.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

In most situations I am able to be flexible with minor timing changes, just let me know and we can discuss it to ensure your event runs smoothly. If your timings have changed drastically (ie a different date) I'll do my best to accommodate you, but this may not always be possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Of course. I provide ipod music before and between sets at no additional charge. DJ services after the final set can be quoted on a case by case basis.

How much time do you need to set up?

For solo bookings I generally set up 45mins to 1hr before the performance time.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

My set lists are crafted from years of performances and learning what works best to ensure your guests have a great time. That said, I'm always happy to chat though if you have favourite songs you'd like to hear, and am happy to play specific songs at specific times to punctuate special occasions (ie. songs during a wedding service).

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes. Alternatively, if your venue already has an in-house PA system I am happy to play through this if you prefer. In this situation I will need confirmation from the venue that they can meet my tech requirements.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Sometimes! If there's a special song you'd like to hear let me know and I'll assess whether I can manage it. The greater the lead time before your event, the greater the chance I will be able to learn a new song for you. Though do bear in mind, not all songs will sound on the ukulele as you might expect them to!
