Introduction

Whitney Tai is a Dream Pop singer-songwriter, entertainer and designer from New York City. Somehow Tai walks the cutting edge of pop and indie without sacrificing emotional honesty. The musical result is a moving, nuanced and accessible blend that turns heads. Popular festival blog Spacelab.tv writes ,"Whitney Tai is not only one of the most soulful, forward thinking and productively positive people you may ever come across, she is a natural talent who has the huge range to match her ambition." In January 2014, Tai released her first pop single “To Be Loved,” and a remix by Adrian Buster shortly after. The song received Hot Shot of the week on two FM stations in the country of Holland gaining her recognition from DJ’s and producers worldwide. Following her first single, Tai gained licensing attention from retail radio playlist maker, Mood Media and the world's leading fashion video platform, Fashion One Television.

In April 2015, Whitney dropped her first debut alternative album, “Metamorphosis,” written and co-produced with Billboard chart topping composer, Tim Janssens (Sunfreakz). Whitney opened up 2016 releasing her dream pop EP, Forever, produced by Billboard producer Spencer Garn of Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics & engineered by Morgan Ray Garcia of Upstairs Recordings (Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson). The track featured Grammy nominated drummer, Mike Phillips (Janelle Monae, Ciara, Austin Mahone). Indie Band Guru raves, “Tai is known for her alternative dream pop music, but looking at her past,is there anything this musician can’t do,” referring to Tai as a “Musical Chameleon.”

In November of 2016, Whitney Tai and Belgian Producer, Sunfreakz (Ne-Yo, Nelly Furtado, Flo Rida), released a new Electro Pop single, “Truth Be Told.” The release included a remix from Swedish producer, LA Rush (Justin Timberlake, Avicii, Gareth Emery). Her restless creative and entrepreneurial drive has expanded to include not just her colorful and vibrant personal style with smart yet accessible music, but catapulted the launch of her own visually creative lifestyle brand, GABB. I Am The Industry notes, "Tai’s grind is unmatched and she continues to demonstrate her talent and consistency as an artist." "Good At Being Bad", the namesake jazz pop track of Tai's new creative branding agency GABB, was the first new music of the year. In September of 2017, Tai released the organic pop ballad "How Was I Supposed to Know" filmed in the the most pristine and surreal edges of the European landscape.

Tai released her next music video shortly after for, “Shockwave” with Billboard hit maker, Sunfreakz in August. Eurodance Blog of Romania named Shockwave one the Top 20 Summer Hits of 2017 and renowned radio host, Dor Dekel of Tel Aviv’s highest rating music station 100FM, home to artists like Steve Aoki and Avicii, placed Shockwave on rotation for their weekly club show “Line Out with Dor Dekel.”Sirius XM radio’s sister blog, InterroBang, calls Shockwave “The Most Visually Stimulating Video of the Summer.” Shockwave is now playing in Hard Rock Cafes across the globe. After a string of album tour shows in New York City, Tai is now working on her second studio album.

In January of 2019, Tai dropped a surprise collaboration entitled, “Flowers By The Roadside” with classical guitarist, Michael Trainor which graced the holiday cover of east coasts longest running rock newspaper publication, The Aquarian Weekly. Happy Magazine of Australia writes about the release, “Whitney Tai crafts haunting and beautiful slices of dream-pop. Her music is at once striking and delicate – like treading on ice, her songs could shatter beneath your feet at any moment. This peaceful sense of unease is perhaps the most captivating quality of her music.”
