“Taurée is dope!” That’s the initial fan response after hearing him for the first time as a featured artist on 2017’s The Great Escape (John Van Ness/My Own Little World Records). Taurée, (born May 11th, 1994) is a singer/songwriter from Long Island, New York. While technically considered a tenor, Taurée possesses a unique voice that has no boundaries – a vocal Swiss army knife. His pristine falsettos and multi-octave range often find him mistaken for a female.
Descent, Taurée’s first album with MOLWR, will be released in the summer of 2018. While he has recorded and released projects on his own, he considers Descent to be his official debut. “Descent is the first legitimate representation of my music,” explained Taurée. “This project is a completely different approach for me. Working with a producer has been eye an opening experience. Having a team makes the work far less stressful and more successful. It’s great to have another person in the mix to bounce ideas off.”
Taurée describes Descent as being about “a boy maturing – losing innocence inevitably through life experiences and transforming into something far different than ,” said Taurée. “The songs are very personal and real so I think listeners will relate to my experiences and these songs.”
Inspired by the soulful stylings of artists like Prince, R. Kelly, Alicia Keys and Maxwell, Taurée discovered his musical talents at an early age. “I realized I could sing in kindergarten when I Believe I can Fly came out. It’s something I continue to work on though”
Taurée’s new music will be available in the near future but in the meantime you can hear him as the featured vocalist on three songs from The Great Escape (Ooh No, I Can’t Hide and February). Stay tuned for more news and updates.
