About Whitney

Whitney Tai is a singer, songwriter, entertainer and designer from New York City. Somehow Tai walks the
cutting edge of pop and indie without sacrificing emotional honesty. The musical result is a moving,
nuanced and yet still accessible blend that turns heads. Popular festival blog Spacelab.tv writes ,"Whitney
Tai is not only one of the most soulful, forward thinking and productively positive people you may ever
come across, she is a natural talent who has the huge range to match her ambition." In January 2014, Tai
released her first pop single “To Be Loved,” and a remix by Adrian Buster shortly after.The song received
Hot Shot of the week on two FM stations in the country of Holland gaining her recognition from DJ’s and
producers worldwide. Following the acclaim of her first single, Tai’s indie comeup gained licensing attention from retail radio playlist maker, Mood Media and the world's leading fashion video platform, Fashion One Television.

In April 2015, Whitney dropped her first debut pop alternative album, “Metamorphosis,” written and co­-
produced with Billboard chart topping composer, Tim Janssens (Sunfreakz). Whitney opened up 2016 releasing her dream pop EP, Forever, produced by Billboard producer Spencer Garn of Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics & engineered by Morgan Ray Garcia of Upstairs Recordings (Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson). The track featured percussion by Grammy nominated producer and drummer, Mike Phillips (Janelle Monae, Ciara, Austin
Mahone). Indie Band Guru raves, “Tai is known for her alternative dream pop music, but looking at her past,
is there anything this musician can’t do,” referring to Tai as a “Musical Chameleon.” Pure Volume states in
reference to her single “Falling” off her EP 'Forever', “The song accentuates the budding singer's promise
and it is a strong sign of what should be a bright future for Tai.”

In November of 2016, Whitney Tai and Belgian Producer, Sunfreakz (Ne-Yo, Nelly Furtado, Flo Rida), announced
their collaboration on a new Electro Pop single, “Truth Be Told.” The release included a remix from Swedish
producer, LA Rush (Justin Timberlake, Avicii, Gareth Emery). Her restless creative and entrepreneurial
drive has expanded to include not just her colorful and vibrant personal style with smart yet accessible
music, but catapulted the launch of her own visually creative lifestyle brand, GABB. I Am The Industry
notes, "Tai’s grind is unmatched and she continues to demonstrate her talent and consistency as an artist."
"Good At Being Bad", the namesake jazz pop track of Tai's new multimedia agency and lifestyle brand,
is the first new music of the year from the budding artist. In Summer of 2017, Tai released the organic pop ballad "How Was I Supposed to Know" filmed in the the most pristine and surreal edges of the European landscape. Tai is set to release a music video for another dance collaboration entitled, “Shockwave” with Billboard hit maker, Sunfreakz this coming August. After the New York City/Boston tour of her first album, Metamorphosis, Whitney is back to work yet again on her second studio album, which fans can expect early next year. Tai has also teamed up in spring of 2017 for new duet album in spring of 2017 with rising songwriter/producer Kelsey Warren, of the lower east side Manhattan band, Blak Emoji.

"I want to inspire the inner rebel in everyone to take control of their dreams and creative pathways," Tai
says. This is why another summer single of 2017, a new disco-pop Spencer Garn collaboration, is called "Grow". She
elaborates ,"80's and 90's pop, they had every emotion and the authenticity was there. It wasn't sterile. I
want to bring substance and human connection back, even in a digital world."
