Taya Gaukrodger hails from Lismore, a country town in the north of Australia. In 2010 she relocated to Sydney to pursue a career in music. Soon after arriving, she began volunteering in the youth, young adults and creative ministries at Hillsong Church.
The world first heard Taya’s voice in Hillsong UNITED’s ‘Oceans’ and ‘Touch The Sky’, and from that moment, her voice became an unmistakable clarion call to worship across the world. Taya is most passionate about worship that points people to Jesus and her hope is to lead people to worship more authentically and passionately as they discover more about him. When she is not travelling or writing music, she can be found pastoring individuals in the creative team, leading and worshipping across the life of Hillsong Church. She is recently married and shares her passion for life, Jesus, worship and people with her husband, Ben.”
