Biography

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 swimming 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 and for their mom and released Brotherhood 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 his journey and love for music. After sharing tunes and songs from the early writing and creative stages to the finished product for some years, Taryll released his solo debut EP My Life Without You on May 13th, 2012, followed by the EP Undeniable on August 29th, 2012, dedicated to Michael Jackson. Both EP's produced one single, however neither the singles nor the EP's were marketed in mainstream media.  

Taryll reunited on stage with his brothers on October 8th 2011 in Cardiff, Wales to perform a tribute to uncle Michael as 3T.  

Taj, Taryll and TJ participated in UK ITV's The Big Reunion TV show in 2014 and a they were part of The Big Reunion Boy Band Tour, a 13-dates UK Tour in October of 2014, marking the return of 3T on the scene.

In 2015, 3T star in Lifetime’s docu-series The Jacksons: Next Generation that focuses on Taj, Taryll and TJ. The series features the brothers as they work to balance a career and their lives as traditional family men while living up to the pressures and demands that comes with their last name.

As a tribute to Dee Dee Jackson, and honoring her everlasting imprint on the lives of so many, Taj, Taryll, and TJ have launched the Dee Dee Jackson Foundation. A non-profit organization built around the giving spirit and legacy of their mother. With your help, we're helping children in need. The Dee Dee Jackson Foundation brings awareness, volunteers and donations to underfunded, under-served youth programs everywhere.

3T released their long awaited and much anticipated new album titled Chapter III on November 6th, 2015  in the United States and globally on September 10th, 2016. 

In September 2016, 3T, backed by a 5-piece band, brought two unique concert experiences unlike anything their fans had ever seen before. Taj, Taryll and TJ believed that The Netherlands was the right place to have a 3T Weekend Celebration and try out new formats that are planned to be duplicated all over the world. 3T shared this next chapter of their music careers with their loyal fans and introduced a whole new generation to the magic that is 3T. 

Taryll has a new-found love for Electronic Dance Music (EDM) and started launching his EDM project on August 8th 2016 and announced to share his journey as he sets out to hit to the Mainstage as a DJ and Producer.
