New York, NY (Top40 Charts / Taylor Grey Productions)
Rising Kobalt/AWAL singer/songwriter Taylor Grey took home the awards for Best Pop Song ("Miami
" featuring Spencer Kane) and Best Pop Album (Space Case) at this year's 16th annual Independent Music
Awards. This year's ceremony was hosted at New York City's historic Lincoln Center and featured nominees from all over the world in a wide variety of genres.
Taylor Grey's debut album, Space Case, was released last summer and features collaborations with Brad Simpson (The Vamps) and singer Spencer Kane. The first single from the album, "Never Woulda Letcha," and the follow-up single, "Miami," both have over one million views on YouTube. Space Case was produced by Josh Abraham (P!nk, Kelly
Clarkson, Thirty Seconds to Mars and Shakira), David
Kunico (Dierks Bentley, Alicia Keys, Selena
Gomez) and Nico Stadi and demonstrates Taylor's uncanny ability to sing of self-awareness and introspection while maintaining a positive and bright melodic and rhythmic feel. Her most recent single, "Poison," is perhaps her most honest and emotionally evolved track that explores and exposes her vulnerability as a songwriter. The song has been well-received and has been played on national radio.
Now in its 17th year, The Independent Music
