Road Dog Media Group at CRS with Taylon Hope
Every now and then you come across a vocal phenomenon that is not at all what you expected.
We recently talked with Taylon Hope during CRS week in Nashville.
I had to be honest with Hope and admitted that when her team approached us for an interview, I was nervous.
So many times there are teenagers that are told they are great, thrown into the “business” and then lose interest before long because it is not an easy business to be in whether you are 13 or 83. It is judgmental and it is brutally honest at times.
Taylon Hope is absolutely the real deal! This girl can “sayng” (pronounced say-ng). The way she takes a song, puts her unique soulful sound and powerhouse vocals on everything she touches proves she is a force to be reckoned with.
Make sure to watch our interview and learn more about this amazing artist.
Taylon, what an honor to spend some time talking with you. We are so excited to watch what happens next for you and we look forward to catching up again very soon! Love ya girl!
