Born in the city of Fayetteville, North Carolina, our guest today is a singer, songwriter, mother and wife.
And a musician, who is looking to inspire the world with the power of her voice.
And when you hear her voice, you can tell that she is someone who has experienced life.
She has had a fascinating journey of personal struggles and challenges which could have easily derailed her and put her on a totally different path to where she is today.
Though still evolving as an artist, her unique gift of music has opened many doors for her.
She has worked with a number of industry veterans such as Troy Patterson, Emanuel Seal (Mariah Carey, Usher) and the Clemons Brothers (Dru Hill, Mary J. Blige, Out of Eden).
All of these roads have led to a place of peace in her life and music, and a clear focus to where her life is going.
And as she says ” My mission and ultimate goal is to establish a foundation that will inspire and build young women with low self esteem and past traumatic experiences, to reach for destiny and to fulfill their purpose”.
So was she always a lady who loved nothing more than belting out the big gospel numbers as a kid?
Or has her talent been as much of a surprise to her than anyone else?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Tay Clemons.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How she remembers her grandmother telling her that even at the age of two she was someone that would get up and belt a song out around the home.
Why as far as she believes when it comes to artist development, commitment is more often far more important than talent.
Why you should care deeply with who you surround yourself with, and make sure that you are getting the right advice not just the “yes” advice.
How when you are working towards something you should have the fortitude to do the stuff you don’t like, if it moves you closer to the thing you do.
How the dream is always bigger than you, and you need to be aware that most of the time you wont know how to achieve it, you just have to do stuff everyday.
