Taryll is the second son of Tito Jackson and Delores "Dee Dee" Martes (1954-1994) who carries his father's initials: T.A.J, just like his older brother Taj. Taryll, the middle one of 3T, is the glue that keeps everyone together.
When Taryll and his brothers were young, they appeared on TV and on stage with their famous uncles and aunts. Meanwhile the boys were already imitating the Jackson brothers with brooms and mops. They were learning to play instruments themselves. In 1985, (TJ aged 7, Taryll 10 and Taj 12) they were already offered a record deal, but they turned the offer down, because they wanted to enjoy their childhood. They wanted to have fun with friends, finish school and to play sports (baseball).
In August 1994, when Taj, Taryll and TJ were busy working on their debut album in the studio, their mother Dee Dee died in a horrible accident. Their mother's death wasn't just an accident; her new partner Donald James Bohana drowned her in a swinning pool and was convicted of second degree murder in 1999. For a while, Taj and Taryll had settled in University and they were enjoying life. The brothers continued to work on their debut album as 3T for themselves anf for their mom and released it in 1995 at their uncle Michael's label MJJ Music and under under their father's management. Taryll was always seen as Mr. Music since he is always working on music, either wiring songs or coming up with new melodies. Taryll wrote and produced songs (many of them with brother TJ) for several artists over the years, including Lindsay Lohan and his aunt Janet.
In 2009 Taryll launched his official website: a place for him to share hisjourney and love for music. From the early writing and creative stages to the finished product. He announced that he was working working on a series of EP’s that will consist of 8 songs. These “mini albums” should be available only for digital download at tarylljackson.com and other internet music stores such as Itunes, Rhapsody and Amazon mp3. He said his goal was to release one or two digital8 EP’s a year. The digital8 project would allow him to share more music in a consistent and direct level. Howevere, since the passing of his uncle Michael, it's been silent around Taryll and his official website was taken down. He appeared in the 3T Day 2010 chat on April 1st and he lend his voice to the spoken bridge of his uncle's song "Hollywood Tonight' that is released the album MICHAEL in Novenmber of 2010. The song "Be My Girl" is featured in the Adidas 2 - The Music album and Taryll is working on his first solo album that he hopes will make his family and fans proud. Taryll reunited on stage with his brothers on October 8th 2011 in Cardiff, Wales to perform a tribute to uncle Michael as 3T. He relaunched his official site tarylljackson.com in February of 2012 and keeps his fans update on the latest via his site, Twitter and Facebook. His long awaited solo debut, the EP My Life Without You was finally released on Mothersday , May 13th 2012. Justa couple of months later, on August 29, Taryll released his second solo EP Undeniabe that is dedicated to Michael Jackson. Taryll is currently working on a new 3T album with his brothers.
