Taylor Deneen is a singer-songwriter from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Her signature sound comes from a variety of genres including R&B, pop, gospel, and jazz. Some of her influences are Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, and D’Angelo. She began singing at the age of 6 and composing music shortly afterward. At just 21, she has performed for the likes of Missy Elliott, Chaka Khan, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and Epic Records’ Sylvia Rhone, to name a few. She has studied under the direction of musical director Rob Lewis, known for his work with Christina Aguilera and Toni Braxton. A full scholarship recipient, she's also a winner of the Berklee Voice Department’s Outstanding Performer Award.
