Let’s Shine Some Light On Taylor Walker aka Tay Walker…
If you haven’t heard of Tay Walker yet, just wait, you will. “Even at first glance, Tay Walker comes off as a humble soul” says Javi of Odd Future Talk in an exclusive interview moments after his feature performance with “The Internet” during the Odd Future Carnival in L.A.’s Nokia Center last summer. New York’s Respect Magazine had this to say about Tay Walker, “The new young crooner whose riveting performance will have the crowd in utter silence, listening to a voice that displays a plethora of depth and range”, and “vocally, Tay’s a great juxtaposition to the crooning style of The Internet and did we mention that he’s a musician as well?” Quality Time, a blog from the Netherlands, which also features interviews with great performance moguls such as Janet Jackson, Drake and Aaliyah says “This 26 year old Neo Soul, R&B artist proves that talent has little to do with age”.
