"Kari Taylor Releases Debut Single"

The talented vocalist from California released her exciting debut single, a move that was highly anticipated by her fans across the world.

Kari Taylor has released her debut Single on May 17, 2011, marking a huge stage in the career of the multi-talented singer-songwriter. Kari, who lives in Torrance, California.

The Single, ‘Love Come Down (The Remake)’, is a cover of the original written by “Kashif” and originally recorded by Evelyn Champaign King. Kari’s version provides a combination of high-energy, soulful, edgy, vocals and music that is punctuated throughout with elements of hip-hop, R&B and house.

The single was recorded at S.M.G. Studios in Inglewood, CA and Blue Palm Studios in North Hollywood, CA. It was produced by Wendell Wellman courtesy of S.M.G., engineered by Rich Niles, and Mastered by Grammy Nominee, Erick Labson courtesy of Universal Mastering Studios.

The theme of Kari’s recording project underlies the different changes a woman goes through when she is in love, changes that Kari has experienced throughout her life. It is this that has helped her to develop her musical style.

‘Love Come Down’ (The Remake) reveals the stunning array of influences that have found their way into Kari’s music. Kari’s grounding came from Gospel and R&B music – however, she has always been known for exploring all types of music in other genres. For this reason, she has infused R&B, pop, Jazz, and House into her music for a unique, new and exciting sound.

Kari’s life has certainly been full of experiences. Not long ago, she was invited to join a cast of celebrities including Chante Moore, Tata Vega, and Sheldon Reynolds (EWF) to perform in honor of Michael Jackson whose Award was accepted by his brother, Tito Jackson, an unforgettable experience that shows she has already made a name for herself and her appeal just continues to grow as she was selected by noted Publicist Edna Sims-Bruce, of ESP-PR to put her skills to work as a publicist for several famed celebrities on the star-studded red carpet for the renowned” Gracie’s Awards” held on May 24, 2011, at the beautiful Beverly Hills Hotel.

Kari has said of her work: “I was brought up around a very talented family. My mother and grandfather were both singers and Actors, my uncles and cousins were in singing groups and some are in the industry now. I’ve performed on stage since the tender age of 5. Since then, my style has developed and I have incorporated other genres which have all been highlighted in ‘Love Come Down (The Remake).’ The single is the first that is a reflection of my influences over the years and the changes of love that I’ve experienced in my life.”

Although Kari has been influenced by artists such as Whitney Houston, Phyllis Hyman, and Janet Jackson she has a unique style of her own.

Love Come Down (The Remake)



I could say that Kari Taylor is a unique, hot, and talented, off the chain and off the hook vocalist but I am not going to do that. I will let your ears be the judge of it. However, let me tell you a little something about Kari and how this Bio arrived in your hands to read.

Kari Taylor is a native of Los Angeles, California and at the tender age of three, showed natural talent and an interest in music. Her family came to the conclusion that she was destined to be a vocalist because the moment she came out of the womb, her first cry had the sound of a note that only a vocalist could hit. By the time she was seven, Kari was performing on stage at Disneyland’s “Golden Horseshoe” in a girls group called “The Little Tots” who were discovered and managed by Hollywood’s own, highly acclaimed Film Producer, Cassius Weathersby, which sparked the interest of famed Producer and Composer, H. B. Barnum. During her middle and high school years, Kari continued her pursuit of music by performing in various talent shows and drama productions that prepared her to become a professional vocalist. In college, her studies included music appreciation, voice technique, sight-singing, dance, and theater arts.

Once the industry heard a glimpse of her voice, it did not take long for her to impress some of the best in the industry, which led to her being featured on the “Jackee and Friends Show,” produced by Darryl Lovett (DLUV Productions). She was also featured on the soundtrack of the re-make movie made for television”To Sir With Love II” starring Sidney Poitier. This year, Kari was invited to join a cast of celebrities including Chante Moore, Tata Vega, and Sheldon Reynolds (EWF) to perform in honor of Michael Jackson whose Award was accepted by his brother, Tito Jackson, an unforgettable experience that shows she has already made a name for herself and her appeal just continues to grow.

Kari Taylor has been recognized by renowned entertainment entities. She is a two-time winner of the BMI Showcase, KJLH Radio Talent Competitions, the Songwriters Showcase, and others. Her performances include studio sessions, festivals, concerts, and club venues. She has also explored her talents as an actress doing background work, her latest being “Dream Girls.”

From the beginning of her career as a child and throughout, Kari has had the opportunity to work with some of the best songwriter/artists in the business, such as Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Antonio "LA" Reid, Jon B., Stevie Wonder, Sheldon Reynolds (of Earth, Wind, & Fire), Craig T. Cooper, Ray Parker, Jr., Barry Mann, Sharon McMahan, D.A. Bookman, Shalamar, The Deal, James Brown, Norman Connors, and many others. Her opportunities also include collaborating with some of the most talented and amazing producers in the industry such as Wendell Wellman, Sigmund Esco “Jackie” Jackson (of the Jacksons), Freddie Rhone, Suamana “Swoop” Brown and Stephanie “Bright Riley,” Robert Brookins, Attala Zane Giles, Billy Osborne, Trevor Lawrence, Barry Mann and Preston Glass, and to name a few.

Kari’s new single entitled, “Love Come Down” was released on May 17, 2011 on her own Indie Record Label, Earforce One Records (http://www.earforceonerecords.com) and she is currently in the studio writing with Producer, Wendell Wellman completing her EP project. Her songs show her diversified range and smooth, soulful, but powerful vocals complimenting the genres of R&B, Pop and Jazz.

To sum it all up…Kari is a complete entertainer who combines all of her talents in live performances and in the studio. She is ready for all to experience her as a vocalist and songwriter…

Giving back has never been a problem for Kari as she is a noted philanthropist. Kari is the Founder, Chairman, and CEO of her own non-profit Organization called “The HUSH Foundation” (http://www.thehushfoundation.org) where she is dedicated to assisting children, teens and supporting the Elderly. The proceeds from her debut Single entitled “Love Come Down (The Remake) will be used to fund The HUSH Foundation so that she can continue to support her community.
