“It’s about a love and passion for music and where it takes you. I’m at my best when I’m not put in a box.”
This is the reoccurring theme that rings in the musical world of Taylor Mallory. Now a part of the Chicago music scene, he is penning hits with the Dupée Productions team and having them placed in shows like the Style Network’s “How Do I Look”. He has also been featured as an actor in various commercials was an on-air VJ for Akoo.
Taylor is a multi-talented singer, songwriter and entertainer. Born into a non-musical family from Decatur Illinois, it surprised everybody to see a creation of their own sing and write music so well.
“Though no one in my family was musically gifted I was exposed to all types of music by my parents. Ranging from Contemporary Gospel, R & B, Funk, Pop to 80’s rock and classical music … at times I can be all those things. It depends on what I’m feeling in the music.”
He has collaborated with or opened for artist like Mary Mary, David Banner, India Arie and performed at places like Schuba’s, Manifest, The Double Door, Subterranean, African Festival of the Arts, and Milwaukee Brewer’s Tailgate.
Taylor always puts 150% in whatever he is doing. Using his favorite quote from his mentor, “It’s not what you do to your music, it’s what you do with your music. At the end of the day it’s about inspiring lives and making a difference in the world.”
