Jordyn Taylor’s Singing Career

At the age of 15, Taylor signed a contract with Manta Productions. She was working with them on her first album for a year and a half until she met Mark Jackson and Ian Scott, who showed her a new sound. At that time, Taylor’s MySpace fame was growing. After her song “Strong” was released, she became the number-one rising star and unsigned artist on MySpace, and was labelled the “Official MySpace Princess.” Jordyn Taylor had almost 52 million plays on the web site in 2013.

A few years after her first song was released, Taylor signed her first contract with Interscope records. She also interviewed several famous artists such as Carrie Underwood, LMFAO, and Ryan Tedder for a MySpace talk show.

In 2009, her song “Accessory” was in the movie, Confessions of a Shopaholic. Soon, Taylor started writing and recording songs with RedOne, Darkchild, and Fernando Garibay. However, at the start of 2010, she was released from her contract with Interscope, as her career was not taking off the way she wanted it to.

For a few months, Taylor decided to take a break from writing and recording. By fall 2010, she picked up where she left off and began recording and writing songs with Matt Wong and Jeff Victuelles. Though she planned on releasing the album independently, a Japanese label named Star Base signed Taylor. For almost two years, she wrote and recorded her self-titled album, Jordyn Taylor with the help of Wong and Victuelles.
