Taylor Gray Hints A New Independent Project

Taylor Gray Shoot

Taylor Gray is back in the studio

Chicago rising artist Taylor Gray is back in the studio, recording his second independent project. Do you remember his first project UnapologetiallyME.? I know I do.

Before we’re blessed with a title that will give us an idea of what to expect from El TGray this second time aroundwe’re going to be in store for a few surprises. Still visuals will be released from an album shoot, which will be shot by Chicago independent photographer Danny Photo, who has had the opportunity to shoot for P Diddy‘s new Tequila line.

We can expect a hot new single that will set the stage for the feel of the entire project. We are not quite sure whether this project will be a full length LP or another EP. The visual will be shot by VisualSZN, who also shot his ‘Dreamcatcher’ visual, and has had the opportunity to shoot Beyoncé at a TidalX Event.

Before you spectate the extraordinary visual, let’s have a talk about communication. Communication is key in the music industry. Artists have to communicate their projects to those of us who love to brag about their artistic works, while also not giving away too much information. Remember, thieves do run the gamut in the industry. Artists also have to communicate, sometimes assertively, with members of their team.

If you, as a musician, ever feel like you can’t honestly communicate what you need and expect from your team, just remember that branding a musician is like campaigning for presidency. If you or your team don’t deposit all of your passion into a project, you’ll realize just how critical and cruel the world can be. Talented artists deserve proper recognition.

As a gift, I’ve put together a playlist

This is my way of communicating my passion to musicians. Music is the most passionate form of communication after all. This playlist is meant to get your creative juices flowing while also telling a personal story of my life. Can you guess how the story goes after your listen?

Born and raised in Indiana, a state where mainstream music dominates and talent goes unnoticed, Mars Donté Jackson has always been in the loop with the newest and biggest artists out. As a kid, after obsessing over many music artists, Mars developed a passion for songwriting and secretly dreamed of being an entertainer/composer. He did not have the voice to pursue this dream so it died along with his songwriting, or so he thought. His love for music only grew, and he started to follow the lives, struggles, and careers of his favorite artists, such as Rihanna, Beyoncé, Chris Brown, Drake and many others, only to realize that the music industry was in need of a big paradigm shift, which took place during the first ever streaming wars. He makes it his mission to defy the standards and practices that are now dated in the entertainment industry to create new ways to market and make wonderful works of art. As a creative writer, journalism is the first step into his plan of changing the world. He dreams that everyone will become “woke” and join his journey in becoming liberated, and helping bring back the honesty and raw emotion in music, literature, and film.
