Taylor Mallory is a multi-talented singer, songwriter and entertainer. Born into a non-musical family from Decatur Illinois, it surprised his parents to see a creation of their own sing and write music so well.
“Though no one in my family was musically gifted I was exposed to all types of music by my parents ranging from Contemporary Gospel, R & B, Funk, Pop to 80’s rock and classical music. At times I draw inspiration from all of these, it just depends on what I’m feeling in the music.”
Taylor is currently a host for the music television show AKOO TV, which can be seen by 44 million viewers in mall and food courts across the nation. He has been featured as an actor in various commercials including Finish Line, Nike, Kodak, and Kellogg. Taylor has collaborated with and/or opened for artists like India Arie, Mary Mary, David Banner, Three Piece and Donald Lawrence. Taylor can also be seen in the March 2012 Edition of Rolling Out Magazine.
“It’s about a love and passion for music and where it takes you. I’m at my best when I’m not put in a box.”
This is the reoccurring theme that rings in the musical world of Taylor Mallory. It explains why at the young age of 23 he is penning hits with his Level Next Music and Dupée Productions team, having them placed in shows like the Style Network’s “How Do I Look”.
Taylor is passionate about his music, which is why you’ve probably seen him perform holding up a sign with the coined phrase “My Passion is My Profession”.
Taylor uses his last name Mallory, which means unfortunate, as motivation to speak out to those individuals who have experienced unfortunate situations and motivates them to live with purpose and passion. At the end of the day it’s about inspiring lives and making a difference in the world.
“It’s not what you do to your music, it’s what you do with your music”
