Alternative hip-hop group Deep Fayed is multi-faceted, heavy-hitting, party rocking, soulful, raise your hand up and get down with us, urban-anthemic, truth-filled, lyrically conscious, ready to lift you up in the whirlwind of electric, enthralling sound that’s redefining the Chicago music scene. Deep Fayed fuses funk, rock, neo-soul, synth, folk, and dub into their music, while keeping hip-hop as the group’s core.
Taylor Kelly has a voice that blends both the smoothness and rhythmic nature of jazz, soul and funk. Her tasteful songwriting tells tales of truth in hopes to inspire many to love, live and let go. Also a trumpet player, she proves the importance of a strong horn section and hot horn lines and strives for an instrumental-vocal approach, a rhythmic phrasing and an improvisation that is reminiscent of many of her trumpet playing influences (Chet Baker, Roy Hargrove and Miles Davis to name a few). Her musical stylings are reflective of Erykah Badu and Stevie Wonder as they possess what she believes to be the true essence of music- harmonic complexity, strong melodic contour and lyrical honesty with an absolutely relentless underlying groove. Taylor has shared the stage with Moonchild, Becca Stevens, Bahamadia and Georgia Anne Muldrow. She released her third studio album, DO U FEEL ME, in June 2017 and is currently working on her next full-length album “Up Up and Away” that will be released sometime next year.
