Taryn Papa is an energetic country singer-songwriter- performer originally from Connecticut.

Taryn began booking her tours and managing herself at 16, bringing her over a decade of professional experience. Performing over 270 shows per year, you can find her downtown on Nashville’s famed Broadway and touring around the country.
Taryn’s favorite quote is also one she embodies with her performances: "For that one moment while the music plays, you know who you are and everything you wish to be.” Not only can her confidence be seen in the delivery of her powerhouse vocals, but also the way she makes a crowd "feel” her passion throughout the songs she performs.
