Biography

Tauren Gabriel Wells is an American Christian rock and pop artist and the former frontman for the American Christian pop rock band Royal Tailor, which produced two albums over a five-year career, garnering two Grammy nominations and a New Artist of the Year award from the Gospel Music Association Dove Awards. In 2014, Wells, along with his wife, launched the Prisma Worship Arts School, a private music academy with multiple locations in the Houston area.

Wells was a founding member of Royal Tailor along with DJ Cox and Blake Hubbard while they were attending Indiana Bible College. Jarrod Ingram later joined. In 2011, Royal Tailor released its freshman album, Black & White, which received a nomination at the 54th Grammy Awards for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. The album peaked at No. 190 on the Billboard 200, No. 6 on US Christian Albums and No. 13 on US Independent Albums. In 2013, they released their self-titled album that included "Ready Set Go" (featuring Capital Kings) as its single. The album reached No. 95 on the Billboard 200, No. 3 US Christian Albums and No. 17 US Independent Album. The group disbanded in 2015 when Wells started his solo career.
In 2016 Wells signed to Provident Label Group - Reunion Records as a solo artist, Wells released his first solo single, "Undefeated", on July 1, 2016. It marked a distinct shift from the glossy pop rock sound of Royal Tailor to one that relied more heavily on electronic influences. It also featured Reach Record's rapper KB and served as the soundtrack for Dude Perfect's "World Records Edition" video on YouTube. Wells released his second solo single, "Love Is Action", in August 2016, and his first solo EP, Undefeated EP, on September 12, 2016. "Love Is Action" was No. 1 on Christian Hot AC/CHR Radio for nine weeks.
In January 2017, Wells released the maxi single,"Hills and Valleys" which reached No. 8 on the Christian Airplay Chart and No. 3 on the Hot Christian Songs chart. The full-length Hills and Valleys was released digitally on June 23 and was released physically on July 21. The fourth single "When We Pray" was released on October 20, 2017. It peaked at No. 7. He was featured on Crowder's "All My Hope." The single peaked at No. 3 on the Christian Songs chart and No. 1 on the Christian Airplay chart, becoming his first number one.
In 2018, Wells received Grammy nominations for Best Contemporary Christian Performance/Song and Contemporary Christian Album of the Year, but did not win either. The fifth single "Known" was released on June 23, 2018. The song peaked at No. 4 on the US Hot Christian Songs chart, becoming his fourth Top 10 single from that chart. It was nominated for the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song.

Wells is married and together they have three children. Wells serves on the staff of his father-in-law's church in Houston (Royalwood). Wells and his wife started the Prisma Worship Arts School, to train musicians. Through the school, Prisma offers private coaching in piano, drums, guitar, bass, voice, violin, viola, and cello.
