Taylor Kelly – (Online Only)

Taylor graduated from Berklee College of Music in May 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in Professional Music and currently lives in Philadelphia. She leads an 8-piece group that has shared the stage with Moonchild, Becca Stevens, Bahamadia and Georgia Anne Muldrow and has released four albums, her most recent entitled “Up Up and Away” that released 01 August 2019 (www.taylorkelly.bandcamp.com). Taylor has toured all over North America and was a finalist in the PHL LIVE Center Stage Competition for R&B in 2018. Aside from her own group, Taylor is also the front-woman (Tayoncé) of Jay-Z/Beyonce tribute band For the Record (previously Hard Knock Live), who had the unbelievable privilege of opening up for Salt N Pepa at Boston's ThrowBBaQ at City Hall in July 2014.

Aside from performing, Taylor teaches voice, piano, songwriting and trumpet lessons. She takes pride in teaching others and inspiring them to love music in the way she has learned to. "I believe the essence of music is self-expression and finding meaning in every word and/or note but I also realize the importance of music theory, ear training and the ability to read as it allows you to understand music fully and go far beyond what you ever thought you could do."
