Whitney Tai

Named by Music Connection Magazine as one of the top 100 unsigned bands, singer-songwriter Whitney Tai is doing something that is rare into today’s musical landscape: She’s walking along the cutting edge of pop and indie without sacrificing emotional honesty. Tai recently stated. ‘I want to bring substance and human connection to the table, even in a digital world.’ Tai hopes that her emotive music can do for others what it did for her: Heal from deep emotional and spiritual wounds. It’s part of the journey that started when Tai lost her mother to cancer when she was only 10 years old. Anchored by the melodic, cinematic production of chart topping producer Tim Janssens, aka Sunfreakz, Tai was put in the same conversation with artists such as Kate Bush, Annie Lennox, M83 and her personal musical influence, Sarah McLachlan. She quickly followed it up with Forever, an EP, which built upon Metamorphosis’ lyrical introspection in the classic pop/rock singer-songwriter vein. Pure Volume stated that ‘Falling’, the lead track from Forever, ‘accentuates the budding singer’s promise and it is a strong sign of what should be a bright future’. After wowing audiences in New York City, Tai is repeating her success in Los Angeles, quickly becoming a fixture as such iconic venues as The Whisky and joining the Warm Audio roster. She’s also hard at work with Billboard hit maker, Tim Janssens, on her second full length album with the goal of transforming her darkest hours into a symphonic rock healing balm for all to hear. "I want to inspire the inner rebel in everyone to take control of their dreams and creative pathways.’ "Whitney Tai crafts haunting and beautiful slices of dream-pop. Her music is at once striking and delicate – like treading on ice, her songs could shatter beneath your feet at any moment. This peaceful sense of unease is perhaps the most captivating quality of her music." Happy Mag “Her voice and arrangements come together in a way best described as “creature” - a being that has musically evolved beyond human limits.” - Vents Magazine “Bringing her own unique sound to the music of Rock’n’Roll” - Indie Band Guru “Whitney Tai is not only one of the most soulful, forward thinking and productively positive people you may ever come across. She’s a natural talent who has a huge range to match her ambition. ” - SPACELAB
