    Taylor Lenz | Artist/Songwriter

    If you haven’t heard of Pop artist Taylor Lenz yet, you soon will. With an explosive debut single release, Taylor has been on a rollercoaster only going up. ‘Tease’ debuted on the radio at KISS 103.3, Planet 102.3, MIX 93.3, amongst other stations, an impressive feat for a new artist. Taylor had two huge syncs in 2021, her first being on MTV’s hit show ‘Catfish’. Taylor received recognition when she was named MTV’s ‘Artist of the Week’, an exciting accolade from a station known for breaking new artists. Soon after, her song ‘Tease’ was synced on a popular Netflix show titled ‘Twenty Somethings: Austin’. She has received press acclaim from publications like The Lowdown, The Pitch, Tongue Tied Magazine, and IN Kansas City Magazine, to name a few. Taylor has been plugged in with the California Copyright Conference since 2017, assisting in the CCC’s Social Media among other things. Taylor has her Bachelor’s Degree in Music Composition with an emphasis in Songwriting.
