Tanya O’Callaghan is a talented bass player hailing from Ireland, known for her remarkable skills and musical prowess. Recently, she embarked on an exhilarating European tour alongside the legendary rock band Whitesnake, led by the iconic David Coverdale. Having just returned from this electrifying experience, I had the opportunity to speak with Tanya at a pivotal moment when the anticipated US tour was unexpectedly canceled. This presented the perfect occasion to delve into the unpredictable nature of a musician’s career and the challenges it entails. Fortunately, Tanya possesses a diverse array of other projects and passions that will help fill the void left by the missed touring dates.
While music remains Tanya’s primary passion, she is also a lifelong environmentalist and a devoted advocate for plant-based health. Beyond the stages that have witnessed her astounding performances across the globe, she champions the belief that “Changing plates changes the world!” This motto reflects her conviction that adopting a plant-based lifestyle can bring about a transformative impact on both human health and the well-being of our planet. Tanya’s dedication to this cause extends far beyond words, as she has created, produced, and co-hosts an exciting new television show called “Highway to Health,” set to grace screens in the near future. Through this platform, she endeavors to promote the global adoption of a plant-based lifestyle and shed light on its myriad benefits for individuals and the environment alike.
