Tanja Solnik

Since the age of six, Tanja Solnik has been singing Yiddish and Hebrew music; and from the age of eight, when she got her first union card, she has been performing international music on tour and on television. She appeared on Ed Sullivan, Mike Douglas, John Gary, and The Today Show, and was a regular on NBC’s groundbreaking children’s program, Take a Giant Step. As "Little Tanja" her travels paired her with show business legends Myron Cohen, The Barry Sisters, Molly Picon and Milton Berle. By age nine she was a veteran performer, doing eight shows a week in the Catskills and Miami Beach. Her off-Broadway appearance in Mickey Katz’s revue Hello Solly, at the Henry Miller Theater was extended by popular demand. She also toured nationwide with Mickey Katz for three years. After a high school hiatus, Tanja recorded several records in Italy and sang the theme song to the movie, Blue Paradise. Back in Los Angeles, she recorded the French version of the disco hit Hey, Mickey for Saban Records. Along with fronting several dance bands, her own country band and frequent studio singing, Tanja began cantorial studies with Cantor Allan Michelson. She sings regularly now as a cantorial soloist for the Creative Arts Temple in Los Angeles. You can hear Tanja singing the theme song on Disney’s "Princess Collection" video series, and she is also a guest artist on Dave Kinnoin’s four children’s albums for Song Wizard Records. As a youngster, Tanja welcomed opportunities to perform international music - she sang in six languages. As an adult, Tanja has continued to create her own unique blend of traditional Jewish world music by founding her own recording company, DreamSong Recordings, with the help of her two longtime friends, Gary Nesteruk and Jim Hershman.
