Taylor Centers – Pop Rock singer songwriter Charlotte, NC MMC 2014 Performer

Taylor Centers, South Florida born & Carolina raised is a senior in high school and has a passion for music. It became her main focus over two years ago, when she started playing piano and writing her own songs. Some of Taylor’s earlier musical influences were Justin Timberlake, Timberland and Britney Spears, but she is now also inspired by the talents of Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, and Joss Stone. Taylor has a lot going on right now and has been writing like CRAZY. Her first recorded originals, “Alibi,” “Say It Like You Mean It,” and “So I’ll Dance” are available now on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify to name a few. All are getting amazing reviews from fans and critics alike. As a result, Taylor was selected by Rob Daily of www.Dailyunsigned.com as a “New Music Discovery”; and subsequently, “Alibi” was included on Aha Radio!

The Internet radio station/music Blog Jamminjukebox.com has selected Taylor Centers as a featured artist for the month of March 2014. She is also very excited about radio air time and support for her music on The Rendezvous Show (TRS247.com) and Eternalnightradio.com. “Alibi” has an amazing professionally produced video on www.youtube.com, which recently had exposure and a blog placement at Spotonmagazine.com. “Alibi” will be receiving airtime on our local Charlotte iHeart radio station 106.5 The End. Cltplus magazine www.cltplus.com has also shown Taylor Centers a lot of love and support featuring her in two online interview sessions over the last few months.

Taylor’s focus now is on continuing to write and performing my music in front of people where ever I can.
