UP & COMING ARTIST FOR 2011: Who Is Talay Riley?

Posted on 27 Dec 2010 at 3:55pm

I remember seeing this guy singing the hook in Chipmunks’ number 1 Hit single ‘Oopsy Daisy’ music Video and thinkin’ ‘who’s he’?

So who is Taylay Riley? If you don’t recognise the name now, you soon will!

Taylay Riley is being dubbed the new Taio Cruz of the new year due to his extensive music writing flair. Like Taio Cruz this 20 year old London Based singer/song writer has worked with the likes of Chipmunks, Tinchy Stryder,  JLS, Jamie Fox, Justin Bieber and Tinie Tempah.

The East London raised Taylay’s musical influences can only be described as surprisingly eclectic, on his myspace page he mentions inspirational sounds such as country, indie and rock music. Taylay explains,  “I knew I wanted to branch over,” he explains, “I didn’t just want to be the typical R&B black guy which I thought was what people would expect from me. So I took it upon myself to listen to all that stuff, I sat down and taught myself to enjoy it and after a while it became natural.”

Signed by Jive Records in 2009 he released a debut track ‘Humanoid’ and is due to release his single ‘Sergeant Smash’ which is out on the 31st of January 2010.
