Check out the interview below!



Taylor Grey is an American songwriter and performer who started creating a name for herself in the music scene in 2016. A Northern California native, Taylor is a prolific recording artist navigating today’s contemporary Pop landscape with an air of authenticity mixed with a natural vulnerability.

Taylor’s passion for writing music and performing began at the age of 12, when she taught herself guitar and piano which helped to develop her musical skill set early on. As Taylor headed into her teenage years, she sought to pursue a career in music, while keeping her education as a top priority. Taylor’s innate drive set the stage for her to pursue her studies accompanied by her expanding music career. Despite this unconventional move, Taylor successfully performed across the United States and internationally while balancing her undergraduate studies over the course of the last several years before graduating college.

In 2017 she released her first studio album Space Case via her standing relationship with Kobalt Music Group and won two Independent Music Awards. The 12-track release featured a notable collaboration with The Vamps’ Brad Simpson. The same year Taylor revealed the Indie-Ballad single “Poison,” which further showcased the playful yet meaningful side of her writing and on-stage presence. A gifted songwriter and talented performer, she provides pristinely produced tracks with enrapturing vocals that surround each piece. 

Taylor’s 2018 project, her self-titled EP GREY,  was produced by Oliver “Oligee” Goldstein (Foster the People, Ellie Goulding) with executive producer Josh Abraham (Thirty Seconds to Mars, Weezer, P!nk). The release was featured on Official Spotify playlists, and supported by Just Jared, iHeart, YSBNow among other high profile outlets.

Taylor toured internationally with Why Don’t We in late 2019, and has shared the stage with Walk the Moon, Fall Out Boy, Sabrina Carpenter, The Vamps, Flo Rida, Jake Miller, and more. Driven by an intricate sound that is vibrant, seductive, classy, and distinctive, Taylor is quickly paving her way in the music industry.  With several releases slated for the upcoming months, she’s going full-steam ahead in her musical endeavors with 2022 gearing up to be Taylor’s biggest year yet.
