Taylor Dayne hails from New York. She grew up with a deep love of music. Her
influences run from Broadway to Soul Music. By the time she reached high
school, she had discovered rock & roll. She developed her powerful
voice and groomed her talent singing in nightclubs in the Brighton Beach
section of Brooklyn. After studying music theory and composition in
college, she joined a New Wave band called The Next, but soon found a
band situation to be constraining, and longed to try her hand at a solo
career. When she met Producer Ric Wake in 1986 she was ready to launch
herself into the pop arena. That initial collaboration rocketed her into stardom.
Taylor's incredible debut album
It To My Heart" spawned a string of four Top Ten
Singles. "Tell It To My Heart," "Prove Your Love,"
"I'll Always Love You" and "Don't Rush Me". In
addition to making chart history, she became one of the core artists of
the crossover radio format that gained prominence in the late 1980's.
Exposure on MTV expanded her audiences bringing Taylor into the living
rooms of millions of viewers.
But it was the support of the dance community that jump-started her
career as she toured the country performing in all of the premier venues
exhibiting her talent to a loyal devoted fan base. In a genre known for
track date artists, Taylor Dayne proved that dance music is a live format as
she embarked on a national tour with a full band.
Her second album
Fight Fate," the real test of the staying power of a performer,
surpassed her debut effort. Included, were such songs as "Every
Beat Of My Heart," "I'll Be Your Shelter," "Heart of
Stone," and the Number #1 Smash "Love Will Lead You Back." Taylor then climbed the charts with a remake of
White's "Can't Get Enough of Your Love."
Taylor Dayne has broadened her horizons beyond the recording
studio and concert venues around the world. She completed principal
photography in her first starring role in a motion picture and has also
been working on a Broadway project with
Elton John and Tim Rice on the
musical adaptation of "Aida."
Hits include: "Beautiful", "I'll Wait",
"Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe",
