“Taurée is dope!” That’s the initial fan response after hearing him for the first time as a featured artist on 2017’s The Great Escape (John Van Ness/My Own Little World Records). Taurée, (born May 11th, 1994) is a singer/songwriter from Long Island, New York. While technically considered a tenor, Taurée possesses a unique voice that has no boundaries – a vocal Swiss army knife. His pristine falsettos and multi-octave range often find him mistaken for a female.
Just Me is Taurée’s second album released through MOLWR. Taurée describes Just Me as a diverse, bold and aggressive declaration life. “I think this album captures my perspective of how life is today,” he explained. “I wanted this album to convey the fact that despite everything that’s going on in the world, life is fun. We can still dance, sing, love and have a good time!”
“I’m always good for a nice ballad but it was important to me to be a little more upbeat with this collection than we were with Descent (2017- MOLWR).” Taurée’s sentiment is quite evident in the groove-laden, infectious swag-dripping album opener, Boss. “Boss is an affirmation – a show of strength and confidence,” said Taurée. “I hope everyone draws strength and empowerment from this song. If you walk away dancing and feeling good after listening to this, my mission is accomplished!”
Inspired by the soulful stylings of artists like Prince, R. Kelly, Alicia Keys and Maxwell, Taurée discovered his musical talents at an early age. “I realized I could sing in kindergarten when I Believe I can Fly came out. It’s something I continue to work on though.”
Just Me is available on all streaming and downloading outlets. You can also hear Taurée as the featured vocalist on three songs from John Van Ness’ 2017 release, The Great Escape (Ooh No, I Can’t Hide and February). Stay tuned for more news and updates.
