Tani Layne is a professional singer and recording artist. She is a mezzo-soprano who has been singing on stages since she was a child - in musicals, at weddings and festivals, fronting various cover bands, in one original band, and with the Baton Rouge Symphony Chorus – and has studied privately for many years under Julliard-trained LSU voice coach Terri Patrick-Harris.
“I’ve been singing since I learned to talk, and before that I probably hummed,” she says, laughing. “Music puts us in touch with ourselves. It can soothe you when you experience a loss or give you a physical outlet for the energy that comes with boundless joy. There is a song out there for anything you might feel.”
A vegetarian for almost 20 years and 6th-time cruiser with Holistic Holiday at Sea, Tani brings her love of classic rock, soft rock, and popular classics to our cruise this year with heartfelt vocals and song selections from a lifetime of performing.
