Singer-songwriter Whitney Tai is doing something that is rare into today’s musical landscape: She’s walking along the cutting edge of pop and indie without sacrificing emotional honesty - or integrity. ‘80's and 90's pop had every emotion and the authenticity was there. It wasn’t sterile’, Tai recently stated. ‘I want to bring substance and human connection back, even in a digital world.’
Tai hopes that her emotive dream pop can do for others what it did for her: Heal from deep emotional and spiritual wounds. It’s part of the journey that started when Tai lost her mother to cancer when she was only 10 years old. Losing the one person who always encouraged her to pursue her creative passions led to a number of health issues including bouts with severe anxiety, depression and weight loss. But it was during this dark period that Tai would channel her feelings into songs and poems and sparked her to fulfill her mother’s pearls of wisdom into pursuing a life of performing.
