Taylor Bright, a Philadelphia native, has come a long way as an actress, singer and a songwriter. Bright was 15 when she acquired an enthusiastic online following. With a youthful style of pop; her song “Striped Socks” was a hit in the teen market and made its presence felt on Billboard’s dance charts. But artists grow and evolve, and Bright’s music has matured considerably since then; today, she favors a much edgier approach to her song writing. Bright, having left behind the pop-rock of her past, characterizes her present direction as “pop with an urban edge and familiar dance undertone.” That direction is perhaps best exemplified in the infectious single “Always Be This Way”, executive produced by Jim Beanz.
