I AM TAYLOR GREY
A gifted songwriter and energetic performer, Taylor Grey burst onto the music scene in 2016, the same year she started her undergraduate degree at Stanford University. Driven by introspection and emotive delivery, the 21-year-old Northern California native has been building a name for herself as a prolific recording artist by navigating today's contemporary pop landscape with authenticity and vulnerability that is impossible not to cheer on. She has already shared the stage with the likes of Flo Rida, Fall Out Boy, Walk the Moon, Sabrina Carpenter, Jake Miller, O-Town, Ryan Cabrera and The Vamps, among others.
Taylor’s passion for writing music and performing started at a young age, having taught herself piano and guitar at the age of 12, she started developing her craft as a songwriter early on. As a teen, Taylor knew she wanted to pursue a career in music, but at the same time was passionate to continue her education. Music has influenced almost everything in her life, in fact, Taylor utilized the lyrics to “When the Storm Comes” for her application to attend Stanford, writing an entire essay on what songwriting meant to her. This drive inside of Taylor has allowed her to study Psychology at Stanford alongside her burgeoning music career. Despite this somewhat unconventional move, Taylor has been successfully performing across the US as well as balancing her undergraduate studies for the last 3 years.
Taylor made her successful record debut in 2016 with a two-part EP, Mind of Mine I & II. The project caught the attention of pop artist Jacob Whitesides, who invited Taylor to join him as an opening act on his "Lovesick" tour that same year. After making her live debut with a full band, she went on a nationwide run across the US with The Summer Set as part of their sold-out "Made for You" tour in 2016.
Further success quickly followed and Taylor’s first studio album, Space Case, was released in June 2017 via Kobalt Music Group. The 12 track album featured songs with The Vamps’ Brad Simpson and Spencer Kane and won two Independent Music Awards. Taylor has worked with some of pop’s finest on the record; the album was executive produced by Josh Abraham (Justin Bieber, P!nk) and produced by Nico Stadi (Justin Bieber, Lindsey Stirling), and also featured production by Dave Kuncio (Selena Gomez, Alicia Keys). The celebration of her debut album continued with a return opening slot on Jacob Whiteside's “Basically Happy” North American tour that Summer, and later, alongside legendary boy band, O-Town on a handful of selected dates for their “I Love the 90s” tour with Ryan Cabrera.
Taylor's latest project, her self-titled EP GREY (produced by Oliver "Oligee" Goldstein [Foster the People, Ellie Goulding] and executive producer, Josh Abraham), has been featured on some of Spotify’s major playlists such as Pop Sauce and supported by the likes of iHeart, YSBNow, Just Jared, and more. Taylor’s music is a melting pot of provocative, emotional, and playful that reflects in her writing and performance.
She continues to add new milestones to her flourishing career, recently performing at the legendary Los Angeles venue Hotel Cafe and the infamous Peppermint Club. Despite her sometimes grueling academic schedule, Taylor seizes every chance she gets to perform live. Most recently, Taylor reunited with The Vamps on their 2019 Four Corners UK Tour after sharing the stage with them in her hometown of San Francisco and Los Angeles during their USA 2018 Tour. Embarking on this tour symbolized a significant break for the studious singer/songwriter who has been packing out venues across the US over the last six months as it was the first time performing in the U.K. and touring in an official tour bus, on top of performing in iconic venues in front of thousands of new fans. On the back of the success of the tour, Taylor released a self-penned, new single entitled, Intentionally, on May 17th, 2019, premiering live in Manchester at the legendary O2 APOLLO venue. Intentionally is an electric single embodied with a catchy melody and playful attitude that was produced by Nico Stadi (Justin Bieber, Lindsey Stirling), and mixed/mastered by Grammy-nominated producer Imad Royal (The Chainsmokers, Panic! At The Disco).
