Taylor Van Cleave, a 19 year old from the New York/ New Jersey area, has been surrounded by the arts his entire life. His parents Broadway performers and music mentors molded his exposure to the performing arts. His love of the guitar and singing emerged while he was in his junior year of high school. It was then that he decided to make his own path in music.  His natural talent as a song writer is impressive. His comfort in front of a mic, in a recording studio and on the stage has been described as genuine, natural and pure. His premiere EP “BedHead” ,recorded in Miami, Fla., produced by @BeauVallis (Pharrell, Kelly Rowland, Alessia Cara) introduces Taylor as a solid new artist with songs “It Takes Two” and “Mother’s Song”.  In the spring of 2019 he released “Satisfied”; a fun, bouncy, pop- influenced blend to enhance your sunshine-induced good mood. His newest single “Away From Me”  digs deep in personal reflection and shines a light on vulnerability. Both of his most recent singles were recorded at Engine Sound, NYC, engineered and produced by @mattanthonyproducer, and can be heard on all music platforms. Taylor is honored to be an AMERICAN IDOL 2019 contestant and impressed judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie at the Denver, CO auditions. He was handed a "Gold Ticket" and was off to Hollywood week where he progressed to the top 70.
