I AM TAYLOR GREY
With the essence of an old soul yet a youthful approach to life, 20-year-old singer-songwriter Taylor Grey, is a promising newcomer to the Alternative Pop community. Known for her emotional ballads and catchy uptempo pop hits, her vocal style and range make her a fan favorite.
Growing up in Northern California, Taylor’s love for music came at a very young age. Taylor started her career in musical theater and began writing lyrics at the age of 12. Her passion for writing grew exponentially after she taught herself both the piano and the guitar and was able to perform her own music. Taylor continues to develop her own unique sound and songwriting style—which have been described as sophisticated, cross-generational alternative pop—and claims inspiration from a wide range of influences in Classic Rock and ‘90s Hip Hop. She is currently a Junior at Stanford University.
Making her debut in 2016 with “Mind of Mine I & II”—a two-part EP that was co-written and produced with up-and-coming producers Benjamin Taylor and Bryan Morton—Taylor soon caught the eyes and ears of Pop Artist, Jacob Whitesides, and shortly after, made her national debut with a full live band by joining his summer “Lovesick” Tour as his opening performer. Quickly, her fanbase began to grow and it gained even more traction in the fall of 2016, when she joined The Summer Set’s sold-out “Made For You” Tour as a special guest throughout the USA.
Following a successful first year, Taylor began campaigning for the release of her debut album, Space Case. In February 2017, she released the album’s first single, “Never Woulda Letcha,” along with her first-ever music video. A few months later, Taylor released another single, “Miami,” featuring solo artist Spencer Kane. The single was premiered live at the Billboard Music Awards Radio Row Opening Ceremony in Las Vegas the night of its release on May 19, 2017.
Taylor kicked off the summer in Tiger Beat’s June 2017 issue as their featured “Artist On the Rise” as well as with the highly-anticipated official release of her debut album, Space Case, on June 16, 2017. The debut album was executive produced by the award-winning Josh Abraham (Justin Bieber, P!nk, Kelly Clarkson, etc.) and produced by Nico Stadi who has recorded with some of pop’s biggest recording artists such as Justin Bieber, Lindsey Stirling, and Jason Derulo. Featured on the album are special appearances by The Vamps’ Brad Simpson (“Fallin’”) and Spencer Kane (“Miami”). Space Case encapsulates pop trends with its driving beats and often whimsical, emotionally-driven storytelling. The music is filled with spontaneous introspection and is authentic and undeniably infectious. Taylor’s music reflects her various artistic passions and her ability to sing of self-awareness, love, and heartbreak while maintaining a soulful and rhythmic feel.
In support of her album release, Taylor joined forces with Jacob Whitesides again for his “Basically Happy” Tour along the west and southern coast. She also joined the legendary boy band, O-Town, for a handful of select dates. Keeping her momentum going, Taylor dropped the official music video for “Miami” with Spencer Kane on August 4, 2017. The music video has received rave reviews and was premiered by Tiger Beat and AXS.
In addition to the aforementioned tours, Taylor’s 2017 has been filled with radio tours, battles, and local concert events with other artists including American Music Awards Opening Ceremony in Los Angeles; iHeart KISS Lounge in Cincinnati with Sabrina Carpenter; New York City with Jake Miller; Electric 94.9 Acoustic Christmas with Fall Out Boy, LAUV, and MAX; NOW 96.3's 2nd Annual NOW Night Out in St. Louis with Flo Rida; and more. In 2018, Taylor won two Independent Music Awards: Best Pop Album and Best Pop Song.
Taylor is currently writing her next project while continuing her radio promo tour throughout the Winter/Spring of 2018. Stay tuned for more tour dates, radio appearances, and music to come.
