Favorite [press] quote about your music: “NJ Taylor is a shining example of allocating funds continuing to create music, especially as I truly believe they will be one of our country’s buzz artists in the coming releases. Her new work is another step in what I know will be another important, beautiful and remarkable piece of music we can all get behind in this country – not because it came from her, but because we know it came from one of our country’s finest musical performers.

The song(s) that changed your life and why: ABBA – “Dancing Queen “. This song is my very first recollection of music and what made me fall in love with pop.
Describe the first time you walked onstage: Wow, that was a long time ago! I was about 5 years old, I’m sure I was really nervous but in all honesty, I can’t remember.
Why did you submit to this year’s Independent Music Awards?: I just released my debut single on September 24th.
If you win and/or get nominated, how will you use your IMA honor to further your career?: If I were to win and/or nominated I would use my IMA honor to create new collaborations with songwriters, producers, composers, etc. I’m presently working on my album, which will be released in 2014, so winning and/or being nominated would truly be a huge push in the right direction to help me get more exposure.
Who is your musical hero & what would you like to learn from them?: Michael Jackson. I would have loved to learn from him the art of delivering lyrics, about songwriting the way he did and coming up with such killer melodies!
