Taylor Dayne is an American pop icon with a career spanning three decades, Taylor's
groundbreaking debut single "Tell It To My Heart" turned her into an overnight international star in 1987. She followed the smash hit with seventeen Top 20 singles
over the course of her three-decade career, including Number Ones "Love Will Lead
You Back" "Prove Your Love" and "I'll Always Love You." Taylor has sold over 75 million
albums and singles worldwide, earned three Grammy nominations, an American Music
Award, multiple New York Music Awards, received New York Music Hall of Fame
honors and ranked as the Number 18 Female Dance artist of all time by Rolling Stone
magazine. She is one of the very few artists in musical history to successfully crossover
into almost every musical genre and chart with hit singles in Pop, Dance, R&B, Adult
contemporary and Rock.
Equally recognized for her songwriting talent, Taylor wrote many of her own hits as well
as Tina Turner's "Whatever You Want." With a truly distinctive vocal style and powerful
range, she created a unique vocal sound all her own that defined an era by her music.
As the late 80s moved into the 90s, her chart-topping songs came with her. Her cover of
Barry White's "Can't Get Enough Of Your Love" and "Send Me A Lover" brought a
strength and power to a female voice seldom heard in history. Taylor's international
radio and record success along with her stage presence and world tours took her
musical message of love and passion straight to the heart of her fans and audiences
By the late 90s, Taylor's career grew further as an actress. She appeared in film, TV
and stage, from Broadway favorites like Elton John's award-winning production of
"Aida," and Mel Brooks "Archie" and "Mehitable," to working with legendary composer
Jules Styne to reprise the role of Fanny Brice on Broadway. Taylor also appeared in
movies including "Love Affair" with Warren Beatty and Annette Benning and co-starred
in Denis Leary's TV drama "Rescue Me". She also starred in the HBO film "STAG" and
co-starred on Showtime's original series "Rude Awakening" while continuing to record,
write and produce her last two studio records " Naked Without You" and "Satisfied,"
which gave her Number 1 "Beautiful" and top 10 chart hit "Unstoppable."
Her growth as an artist was enhanced by the birth of her twins in early 2002. Her voice
became stronger and more meaningful as she took on single motherhood,
empowerment, surrogacy and parenthood head-on, becoming a voice and an advocate
for working woman, same-sex marriage, parenting and fertility. Her 2016 TEDWoman
talk opened her career to more speaking engagements, inspirational and monumental
moments, and paved the way to her memoir.
In 2018, Taylor celebrated her 30-year anniversary release with the release of "Tell It
To My Heart," 30 year Deluxe Edition with additional mixes and 2 new songs. She is
also embarked on a national "Tell it To My Heart" tour to celebrate with her fans.
