About Whitney Tai
Whitney Tai is an award-winning singer-songwriter and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Symphonic and cinematic, “her dreamy soundscapes deliver tantalizing wisps of surface pigments to cinematic proportions.” Tai's signature sound of electro-pop, rock, and alternative metal is powered by her nuanced, soaring vocals.
Her art pop style has been compared to the likes of artists such as Annie Lennox, Kate Bush and Amy Lee, however, Legendary Boston programmer, DJ Oedipus says that Tai is "an artist who defies categorization." After her pop debut, Metamorphosis, in 2015 with # 1 Billboard artist, Tim Janssens, the duo reinforced this sound on 2020's Apogee. Selected as Best Vocalist in the 2021 ICMA awards, the NYC native has written music since her pre-teen years, a necessary outlet to overcome the traumatic cancer battle of her mother as a child. Following her exodus to LA, Tai’s cover story on the 50th anniversary issue of The Aquarian Weekly with her re-arrangement of Silent Night marked the beginning of a new journey. Named as one of LA’s top bands by Music Connection Magazine, headlining NAMM in 2020 and releasing her award-winning sophomore album, 'Apogee' in June which Rear View Mirror calls “one of the best cathartic dream pop albums released that year.”
Making the 2023 GRAMMY’s ballot, Tai was a contender for Best Pop Duo on her newest release, “Free Time” with Montreal-based producer, Harry Vato as for Best Rock Album, “Sheltering Sky” with the multi-platinum, Chuck Wright. Whitney’s written and performed in a number of projects such as Beauty in Chaos (Marc Bolan, Dug Pinnick, Al Jourgensen), Julian Beeston (Billy Idol), The Blues Bones, and most recently for bassist/producer, Chuck Wright (Alice Cooper, Gregg Allman, Quiet Riot). KNAC Radio calls Tai’s and Wright’s rendition of “Army of Me” a sultry and haunting version of a Bjork classic. Tai is currently back in the studio working on her 3rd solo album and an array of eclectic musical projects.
