Teen heartthrob Taylor Jones’ first single Fallen Out soared to number 2 in the UK Urban Charts and his first official release Rock The Party hit the charts all over Europe. Now his latest single Emergency has just been released into the UK with a fresh new pop sound that is bound to recruit a whole new army of fans for this young pop star.
Emergency is an energetic electronic-pop single expressing a heartfelt break-up in the most positive way possible, portrayed with imagery based lyrics, glossed in
tongue-in-cheek humour from the 20 year old singer-songwriter. The verses are very chilled displaying TJ’s cheeky personality, which build to climax in a hard-hitting chorus blending an emotional concept into a catchy sing-a-long pop record Emergency.
Taylor Jones fell in love with music at a very young age and began his career as a singer-songwriter. His drive led him to create music and within no time at all his videos were garnering over 200,000 hits on youtube and at the tender age of 16 his self produced single Fallen Out soared to number 2 in the UK Urban charts. Several compilations in the stores and 2 independent records later, Taylor’s self-named community of fans, the Teejayers, began to make noise – and a lot of it. Soon he was snapped up by Marshall Arts Talent, who look after mega stars like George Michael and Pink and was shortlisted by MTV UK as one of the Top 20 Acts to look out for.
His first professional release Rock This Party was licensed by Kontor Records, Scorpio Music, Magic Records / Universal and subdivisions of Universal and Warner Music. The hit flew into the charts in 4 European countries and landed
placements on no less than 27 successful dance compilations by the famous Kontor House of House.
Now thankfully, this British born pop star is sharing his talent on his home ground, as his latest single Emergency has just been released into the UK. The Guardian newspaper featured Taylor in a two page spread names ‘Big in Belgium’, but it looks like Taylor Jones is about to become big in the UK too!
Official Taylor Jones websites:
JC: Tell us about your new song Emergency.
TJ: Emergency is a song that describes in words an awkward tension, and a feeling of being unappreciated in a relationship; however it quickly moves onto emphasising the fact that so many people hold on to that relationship, as if they don’t they’ll be “sleeping in a cold and lonely bed”! So the chorus begs to get me to the doctor before my heart breaks, hence it being an Emergency!
JC: How would you describe your music style?
TJ: Pop music, with an urban twist. I like my music to be a little original and edgy. Writing my own music allows me to really perfect the sound I want to have.
JC: What is the highlight of your career so far?
TJ: What a question – it all depends if you’re talking as an artist or as a songwriter! I have to say; interviewing Will Smith at the After Earth movie premiere was quite a highlight for me. Performing to 42K people in the biggest arena in Belgium was also cool, nevertheless.
JC: Who are your musical inspirations?
TJ: Pretty much everybody, and everything! I use real life experience and scenarios to come up with the concepts in my songs. It’s all real emotion and feeling. If I had to nail my inspiration down to a name though, I would probably go for Maroon 5 and Owl City.
JC: Where can we buy your music?
TJ: iTunes, Spotify, Play.com, Amazon, Shazam in the shop (depends what country you’re in), you name it. If it sells music, I’m there.
JC: You have an avid fan base, how did they come to be called Teejayers?
TJ: Teejayers is a self-named fan kingdom, and a cool one at that! I was previously called TEEJAY, however as I matured I decided to change my stage name to TAYLOR JONES, and indeed it is my real name. So the name came from the previous brand name I guess. I kinda’ like it.
JC: If you could perform for anyone, who would it be?
TJ: Wouldn’t be one person specifically, but I would love to perform for thousands at Madison Square Gardens, in NY. Turn that place into a UK style party.
JC: If you could perform with anyone, who would it be?
TJ: One of my dreams would be to perform with a band! I am a huge Coldplay fan, so that would be incredible.
JC: Do you write all your own songs?
TJ: Absolutely! I write songs for myself, and for others. I’ve written top 20’s and even top 10’s across Europe for many international selling artists and big companies like Warner Music, Universal and Sony, to name a few.
JC: What can we expect from you next?
TJ: World-wide domination ;-). Well, let’s hope so anyway. I like to think of this as a journey, and so I take every day as it comes and see what crosses my path next. A new single in a 3 months though, that’s a given.
