For Singer-Songwriter Taylor Sierra, the quote “Be yourself, embrace your inner self, and forget what other people say” isn’t just a quote, its part of who she is as an artist. An entrepreneur and talent powerhouse, she utilizes her education and creative wizardry to share her ideas, thoughts and soul through her music. Growing up in Rancho Cucamonga, California, Taylor Sierra has lived life like someone who has been here three times as long. At the age of 10 Taylor Sierra started off singing in the choir and dancing in Dellos Dance & Performing Arts Studio, winning several big competitions.
When asked who influences her most, Sierra rants on about loving the 90’s era of music. From artists such as: Aaliyah, TLC, Destiny Child, Missy Elliot, Michael Jackson, SWV, Mary J Blige, and Brandy. Not until Aaliyah, and Lisa “Left eye” Lopez losing their lives, Sierra’s two favorite musicians of all time, is when Taylor knew a career as a musician was her passion. Hoping to make an impact on people’s lives the way her two favorite artist had done, Taylor Sierra got the idea of starting a girl group of her own. Holding auditions in her High School, Sierra found three girls willing to sing and dance in her girl group called “Emurge”. After numerous performances, the group was destined for success, but later disbanded and didn’t work out. While continuing to further her education Taylor Sierra decided to continue her passion for singing, even if it meant being solo to achieve her goals.
Her 2012 new breakout single “Anesthesia” is a reflection of Taylor Sierra letting the world knows she is here and here to stay. As if her unique look and voice are mesmerizing enough, her songwriting is always charged by the raw energy around her. Taylor Sierra’s emotionally driven lyrics sit on top of a heavy bed of hip-hop base, R&B harmonies, and sultry electronic sounds. Look out for this new artist's E.P. 2013!
