Raised in a small farm town in New England, sisters Presley (rounding the corner to turn 20) and Taylor (who is 18) were surrounded by acres and acres of green pasture freedom in Connecticut and raised by the Golden Rule to learn the value of hard work, self-respect and to respect others. They spent much of their childhood alongside their family of talented musicians listening to traditional country music trendsetters (Tammy Wynette, Alan Jackson, Randy Travis and Tanya Tucker) that paved their way to become legends in the genre.
The gal’s tight-knit, sisterly bond, stellar vocal instruments, natural harmonies and shared passion for traditional country music define Presley & Taylor as genuine, talented entertainers. The millennial’s artistic goal is to create music with a familiar throwback sound, amidst modern concepts as the Presley & Taylor signature. national MusicRow Country Breakout Chart. Keeping the upward momentum, their most recent single (“My Home Town”) topped out at #25. In January 2017, they released the country music single titled “This Phone” and they are currently in the studio recording their sophomore CD project (anticipated in early Summer 2017).
Presley & Taylor have shared the stage with award-winning entertainers and hit-makers such as Martina McBride, Ashton Shepard, Bucky Covington, Janie Fricke, Sarah Darling, Jamie O’Neal, The Willis Clan Buddy Jewell and Restless Heart. They’ve become regular performers at Tootsies Orchid Lounge, The Palm, the Hard Rock Café, Margaritaville and Ernest Tubb Record shop; and they have made a number of in-studio, special guest appearances on WSM-650AM radio in the heart of Music City.
Described as “the real deal” and “absolutely brilliant” by radio execs, the “neo traditional” Presley & Taylor embrace the sound of stone cold country music and traditions, while adding a whimsical charm with their absolute vocals and impeccable harmonies, and song content created with meaning and substance. Presley & Taylor originals highlight contemporary storylines that dial into millennial relationships and sentiments of today’s young, up-to-the-minute generation.
Launching their music careers as “official,” Presley & Taylor cut their teeth in the studio to record a project “just for fun” and the fun took flight to escalate into a promising career. They released their first EP, at just 14 and 16 years old, titled ALL KINDS OF BEAUTIFUL in 2012. The project highlights the song craftsmanship of some of Music Row’s most sought-after songwriters (Amanda Williams, Rachel Proctor, Donny Kees, Monty Holmes, Doug Johnson and Skip Ewing to name a few).
