Tanya exudes faith, inspiration and has a winning smile : ) Not to mention she has amazing taste in music! If your not familiar with Tanya Rad, now is the time to jump on board! Tanya is a host/blogger/incredible human being who happens to also be an awesome radio DJ.

So since the winter in LA is so rough, we figured someone’s gotta get out and enjoy it right? ha. Heres what went down!
What music inspires you?
Authenticity is what really gets me in music. When an artists is being authentic and telling a truth they have discovered.. to me that is what cuts through and connects someone to their audience.. that is what gets me!
Who is your favorite artist? What do you like about them?
Ohh that is a REALLY hard question. I think one of my favorites definitely is Demi Lovato. I love that she has a point of view.. I love that she speaks her mind.. and I love that she is a walking testament to what she believes. I love that she is a huge role model for young women but she acts herself…
If music was removed from the world, how would you feel?
I honestly think I would be depressed if there was no music in the world.. I’d say I spend a good 75% of my day listening to music… and that isn’t even an exaggeration!
Is there a quote or lyric that you live for?
One of my FAVORITE quotes that I remind myself of daily is “If you can dream it, you can do it” by Walt Disney.
What do you look forward to this summer? Anything we should look out for?
This summer is going to be a great summer for live music… We have Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas hitting the road together! We have Selena Gomez kicking off her tour, Charlie Puth will be touring…. it’s definitely going to be a fun summer to get out there and see some live music! Also there is a girl that’s just starting to break through her name is Zara Larsson ..look out for her! Also a newcomer to the scene .. Sofia Carson … you might know her from the Disney movie “The Descendants” but she’s getting ready to launch her music career and I’m hearing good things
Any words of advice or comments you would like to leave?
Be yourself & believe in yourself!
