Music artist, speaker and coach
My name is Tatiana, but I’ve always been called Tajci (TAI-chi). Yes, my name sounds like T’ai-chi – the martial arts.
I’ve been a music artist since I was 4 years old. From a very early age, I saw (and experienced) music as a transformational tool, and one that has the power to connect people, heal and bring joy and peace.
All of my life I have been motivated by the same intention: to tell stories through music and move people’s hearts. Creating music, writing stories and producing uplifting and inspiring experiential events has always been my happy place.
Through being a creative entrepreneur and a mom of three sons, I learned how to adapt, pivot, transform and recreate my business model to weather many life’s crises and remain successful.
I live in Franklin, TN with my three sons, tour with my music shows and speaking programs (when the world is not paused by a pandemic), write inspirational books (usually with companion albums), facilitate retreats, teach meditation classes, and use my life coaching certifications to help other creatives heal deeper, love more and uplift others.
Tajci became a pop superstar in Croatia (then Yugoslavia) at the age of 19, achieved platinum record sales, had a doll made in her likeness, and was endorsed by Levy’s. As a finalist at Eurovision Song Contest, Tajci’s megahit song “Hajde da ludujemo” is still one of the top favorite songs of all time.
A graduate of American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City, Tajci performed in many venues off Broadway, on NYC cabaret stages, and was an opening act of a show “Call for Bread” at the Madison Square Garden. She produced shows in NYC and Los Angeles, as well as toured with her own one-woman play nationwide. Her first USA album was produced by Camille Barbone, and featured such musicians as Nona Hendrix, Dave Stewart, Jon Gordon, Charlie Giordano, and songwriter Julie Gold.
During her ten year residence in Cincinnati, OH, Tajci toured extensively with her music, released seven albums, wrote and produced full length musical “My Perfectly Beautiful Life,” co-founded a children’s theatre and performed a show with Steinway artist Dr. Stanley Yerlow.
After moving to Nashville, TN, Tajci produced three seasons of the TV show Waking Up in America, published five multimedia books, got certified as a life coach through Radiant Coaching Institute, and attending Coaching Certification through Chopra Center. Tajci is also a Certified Chopra Instructor of Perfect Health, and Meditation classes, and ICF member (awaiting A.C.C. accreditation). In 2019, Tajci launched a new touring show with Live on Stage agency.
Tajci’s recent biographical book “(un)Broken” combines poetry and song to augment memories from her diary that chronicle her intimate accounts of how music and the creative process can promote the healing of emotional pain.
Tajci is co-songwriter of Olivia Newton-John’s latest hit single “Window in the Wall“.
She is a Board Member of Nashville Peacemakers, a Better Decisions volunteer mentor at TN State Prison for Women, and a volunteer presenter for EndSlaveryTN.
