Coming in late November, Grammy-nominated pop icon Taylor Dayne’s memoir “Tell It To My Heart” — how one woman rose above her modest upbringing to manifest her own success, becoming a chart-topping singer/songwriter selling over 75 million records, and choosing to become a single mother.
“Tell It to My Heart: How I Lost My S#*T, Conquered My Fear, and Found My Voice” captures Taylor Dayne’s ascent against all odds, and the stories behind the dance soundtrack of our lives. From her early life growing up in a challenging blue-collar Long Island home in the 1960s and 1970s through her years touring as a chart-topping musician through New York, LA, Shanghai, London, Paris, and Tokyo in the 1980s and 1990s, she tells-almost-all about her experiences with renowned talents including Michael Jackson, Elton John, and Whitney Houston.
Taylor’s personal journey is proof that childhood reverie can become reality. The humor, strength, resilience and grace that led her to stardom are woven through the scenes of her book — showing how vulnerability turns out to be strength, and how strength comes from somewhere inside when you least expect it.
Taylor describes her memoir:
“It’s gritty, it’s real, and it’s truthful. It’s about love, which is good even when it doesn’t last, and God, who is good, even when it seems like He’s being kind of a dick. It’s also about friendship, but most of all, it’s about the voice which was my salvation. At fifty-fffrrshx, I feel like I’m the closest I’ve ever been to knowing peace, knowing who I am and what I need. Loving, learning, mentoring and mothering—these are tall tasks that require a strong backbone of authenticity and integrity. I hope this book will inspire readers to do the same.”
Thirty years after the release of her single by the same title “Tell It to My Heart,” Taylor Dayne continues to tour the world. She was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame in 2012, joining other luminaries like Billy Joel and Joan Jett.
