Taylor Bennett is a major advocate for the LGBTQ community and homeless youth amongst other initiatives. Coming out in early 2017 as bi-sexual, he addressed: I think there’s a lot of people — especially in the music community, especially in hip-hop — that don’t feel okay with being themselves, that feel like being different is to be wrong. I’ve never shared that belief. My parents, my brother, friends and anybody that I’ve ever surrounded myself with, we’ve always accepted and respected each other for who we are. That’s something that I want my music to reflect as well. (The Fader, 2017)
Taylor’s debut album, Broad Shoulders, was released in 2015 and featured tracks with artists such as King Louie, Joey Purp, Chance the Rapper and more! The buzz around his first project also fueled a 13 minute short film that was released in 2017. His sophomore album Restoration of an American Idol released in 2017 featured A-list collaborations with Jeremih, Raury, and Lil Yachty among others. Bennett toured around this album on a 29-city tour that saw him headline and sell out rooms across the country. Taylor is currently out promoting his 2018 release, “Be Yourself ” with “The American Reject” being the follow up EP.
