Tayo Reed is the “Ultimate Entertainer”. Her way of belting out a song, while interpreting the words thru dance, has left audiences amazed and wanting more. Seeing is definitely believing, but her show, which she affectionately calls “Tayo Country” is a must see show. It features original exciting up tempo songs such as “If I Ain’t Country”, and “In Tennessee” blended with heart wrenching ballads like “Tear Down the Walls” . She also adds crowd pleasing traditional and contemporary cover songs like “Somebody Like You” by Keith Urban, “Sin Wagon” by the Dixie Chicks and Mama He’s Crazy by The Judd’s which highlights her versatility. There’s also little honky tonk which is evident from her rendition of Gretchen Wilson’s hit “Redneck Woman” and she has a streak of Southern Rock and R&B in her too which shows up in her “knock out” punch of Lynard Skynard’s “Sweet Home Alabama”, Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary”, Elvis Presley’s “Hound Dog” and John Mellencamp’s Pink Houses. Tayo has been described as Wynonna + Gretchen, +Shania + Garth Brooks +Tina Turner all rolled up into one. What ever the comparisons, she has emerged with her own flavor of country music and those who have been fortunate enough to see her are definitely enjoying the taste.

Tayo toured internationally as a dancer with the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. She credits learning an invaluable lesson about the necessity of giving your “heart and soul” while performing. With the blessing of James Brown, she left the tour to focus on her singing career. Today, she is in the studio working on her music to share with the world. “Country music comes from the soul and it is Universal through me” says Tayo Reed. Tayo has performed at the North Georgia Fair, Country Fun Fair, Radio Disney, Rusty Roosters Saloon and Dancehall, Rex, GA, Centennial Park Summer Series, Music City Marathon, and was also a Country Colgate Georgia Semi-Finalist.
