Profiling: Singer-Songwriter, Taya Marquis.

I may be slightly biased when I say, this singer-songwriter is an incredibly talented, driven, and captivating up coming artist, and if you haven't already heard her voice, I urge you to do that NOW! I'm talking about my lovely sister, the one and only, Taya Marquis

Growing up with her, and watching her obsess over being an artist is truly inspiring to me. In todays day and age the musical world is high competitive, and everyones got a backup plan. This young lady has never once had a backup plan. She has worked her f*cking ass off and continues to do so every single day so that her childhood dream of making it in the music industry comes true. 

Here is a little bit on Taya:

Taya grew up in Mississauga, Ontario where she attended Cawthra Park Secondary School
of Performing Arts. Upon graduating she moved to Los Angeles, California to write full-time, and pursue a career in the music industry. After being in California for 2 years, she moved back to Mississauga to study Entertainment Business Management at Metalworks Institute of Sound and Music Production. Taya has already co­wrote with platinum selling artist Ke$ha and songwriter Robert Allen who wrote “Disturbia” by Rihanna and “Forever” by Chris Brown.Today, she is currently living in Toronto, and getting her name out on the music scene. Taya has already performed for Canada’s Walk of Fame Emerging Artist Showcase, Honey Jam, Wekfest alongside Snoop Dogg, Finger 11 and Justin Nozuka, Performing on notable Television stations in Canada such as CP24 and more, and recently Opened up for Tinashe’s Aquarius Tour just to name a few. L3 Magazine has named her one of Toronto’s up and coming artists, A&R report has dubbed her one of their Artists to watch in addition to rave reviews via Boi1da.net, Best Fan Blog, Now Magazine which only scratches the surface . With growing interest in her music, Taya has recently released her first EP entitled “Woman” produced and written in collaboration of herself and producer/artist Neo Tempus. Taya is an alluring up­and­comer to watch, and has a story she has yet to share with the world.
