Whitney Tai is a Los Angeles based singer-songwriter, architectural designer & creative director from New York. Tai was named by Music Connection Magazine as “one of the Top Live Bands in Los Angeles,” and quickly brought onto the roster of pro-audio company, Warm Audio (Fitz & The Tantrums, PVRIS and Within Temptation). She began writing poetry, creating mixed media art and crafting songs at the age of 7. After losing her mother to cancer at just 10 years old, she channeled her grief into art by enrolling at one of Manhattan’s top design schools where she went on to design spaces internationally while writing her first album. In 2015, Tai released Metamorphosis, a 7-song suite capturing the trauma and resolve of her childhood. Anchored by the cinematic production of Tim Janssens, Tai was put in the same conversation as Kate Bush and Annie Lennox. After releasing a series of eclectic singles, Tai’s music videos began circulating the Hard Rock Cafe scene and opened 2019 on the 50th Anniversary cover of NJ’s longest-running rock newspaper, The Aquarian. Before the global pandemic of 2020, Tai headlined on The Marriott Yamaha Stage in January at NAMM, the world’s largest trade-only music convention based in Anaheim, California. Happy Magazine elaborates, “Whitney Tai is one of those rare artists with the ability of leaving you transfixed. Her music is stunning and unnerving all at once.” Tai’s new 10 track album, Apogee, released in June of 2020 showcases an eclectic collection of dream pop, electro-pop, alt-rock and aromas of gospel. “An album boosted to cinematic proportions. Whether its dreamy soundscapes, retro-pop circuits, or stadium level grandiosity, Apogee is not to be missed,” says Awful Track Record. HuffPost Journalist, Randy Radic writes for Rawckus Magazine, “With Apogee, Whitney Tai delivers tantalizing wisps of surface pigments, drifting, cogent, and mesmerizing, all crowned by her superb vocals."
