What is your artist name? I am known by Taiya or Taiya Official
What kind of music do you make? I create R&B/Pop music. I am a singer songwriter with an old soul yet new school R&B/pop sound that is eclectic and new to this industry. My Major influences are Jennifer Hudson, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Jhené Aiko, Whitney Houston and many more! My process of making music typically starts with me finding a beat that my heart is drawn to, and from there I let my mind take control and I start humming a melody that then brings me to place lyrics within that melody where they typically tell a story or relate to my mood. Sometimes I even start with my own melody and lyrics and then have my producer create a beat around my raw vocals. I would like all of my listeners to hear my songs as a completed project and relate my personal lyrics to their lives. My music is the type of music that really resonates to any listers of any age due to most of my music being based on true events or true human emotion.
How old are you and when did you start creating music? I am 20 years young, and I began singing as soon as I could talk and discovered my writing ability in the 6th grade around age 11.
What are your goals when it comes to your music career? My goals are to be seen and heard by the masses, and to be a positive influence amongst as many people as I can reach within my lifetime.
