Always looking to spark creative conversation and inspire positive vibes, Taylor curated a project that breaks down the walls of genre-boxing, delivering an album that audiences of all backgrounds and interests can enjoy. Coming of Age incorporates influences from Taylor’s deep music history knowledge, compounded with innovative new music production and a dose of nostalgia, for a sound that’s entirely unique and fresh. Recorded completely with live musicians, the album has a live, raw sound that’s unparalleled in the current music landscape.

Taylor is currently performing his new music on tour in partnership with Champion® Athleticwear, “Be Yourself, Be A Champion.” The tour is a labor of love that will encourage fans to embody Champion’s “Be Your Own Champion” spirit by embracing their unique style with the confidence to play by their own rules. The tour has seen Taylor at universities and venues in major U.S. cities including Atlanta and Los Angeles, with Boston, Washington D.C., New York, and Chicago still to come. As part of the tour, Taylor and Champion have a limited-edition capsule collection that includes crewnecks, hoodies, shorts and t-shirts. The collection is available at https://taylorbennett.co/. Concert tickets are open to all currently enrolled college and university students. For more information and RSVPs, visit: https://taylorbennett.co/champion-tour/.

Taylor Bennett has always carved his own path as an independent music artist, family man, and advocate. Taylor and his Grammy winning brother Chance grew up on the south side of Chicago. While the Bennett family business has grown to become a global success, Taylor has carved a path of humility and individuality. Taylor Bennett wants to use his music platform as a vehicle to impact his fans and the world.

In 2017, Taylor came out as bisexual to publicly voice his continued support for the LGBTQ+ community. With his “Be Yourself Pt.2” song and his apparel collection Be Yourself, which continues to sell out, Taylor wanted to inspire and celebrate our differences. He hopes to show that no matter who you like, no matter what race you are, no matter where you are from, it is all about love.

Chicago-born Taylor Bennett is not just the younger brother of Grammy winning Chance the Rapper, but he’s carving his own path as an independent music artist, entrepreneur and advocate. His career began in high school when he released his debut mixtape, The Taylor Bennett Show. While still prioritizing his studies over music, Bennett was next able to release his debut studio album in 2015 and sophomore album in 2017 which included a 13-minute short film. Taylor’s latest EP The American Reject is a completion to his trilogy. In 2019, Taylor performed at diverse festivals and late night shows including Governor’s Ball, Hangout, Outside Lands, Life is Beautiful, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Show and many more. Notably, he headlined Chicago’s Complexcon. Taylor started his own record label, Tay Bennett Entertainment which boasts singer Bianca Shaw, ZXXK, and Dwayne Verner Jr., who was signed in 2020. Dwayne Verner Jr. is also the Executive Producer of Bennett’s newest single, “Fall Short,” alongside Ken Bennett. Taylor Bennett is a major advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and homeless youth amongst other initiatives. A statement he made: I think there’s a lot of people — in the music community, especially in hip-hop — that don’t feel okay with being themselves, that feel like being different is to be wrong. I’ve never shared that belief. My parents, my brother, friends and anybody that I’ve ever surrounded myself with, we’ve always accepted and respected each other for who we are. That’s something that I want my music to reflect as well. (The Fader, 2017)
