TAJLA Profile Picture
Music – Melbourne, VIC

Hi! My name is Taylor Stanisic. I am 21 years of age, born in Long Island NY, and grew up in Melbourne, Australia. I have been performing since I was 6 years of age, and have done everything from school concerts, to bar/restaurant gigs, galas, competitions, carols by candlelight, to representing Australia in the World Championships of Performing Arts held annually in Los Angeles, which is an olympic style competition. I have been songwriting and playing piano for about the same amount of time, which has shaped who I am as an artist. I produce a lot of my own music, and write everything. I go by TAJLA as my family background is Croatian, so this is a little nod to my family. My biggest influences in shaping who I have become as a performer and singer are Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera. I was in a Jazz/Soul band throughout high school, and grew up listening to a lot of RnB/Hip Hop in which I have taken inspiration from to create my own sound in addition to Pop. I don't usually like to stick to one genre, as I'm a very free spirit, and each song I create comes from a different time/different emotions, so I like to constantly evolve my sound, and take inspiration from many different genres depending on what I feel in that moment. ...more
