�Everything comes out in blues music: joy, pain and struggle.
Blues is affirmation with absolute elegance�
~Wynton Marsalis~

Ms Taylor P Collins has carved out a remarkable career as a contemporary Blues and Jazz artist, vocalist and bandleader. Far away from Columbus, Ohio and her native home of Norfolk, VA, Collins is one of Northern California�s most valued treasures, who is highly revered by her music constituents and fans alike.

Mentored by her dear friend, the late legendary vocalist Miss Ruth Brown, Collins developed and honed an original and impressionable Blues style that unmistakably makes her one of the genre�s most commanding artists in both live and recorded performances. Her unique, impeccable appearance, along with her sophisticated and powerful vocal performances are why she has developed and maintained a fan base that has been consistently devoted and loyal throughout the years.

Ms Taylor P Collins� has shared stages with some of music�s greatest performers such
as the late Etta James, Miss Ruth Brown, The Neville Brothers, Barbara Morrison, Albert Collins, Gladys Knight, and she has opened for John Handy, LaVerne Baker and Jefferson Starship. When an artist can hold his/her own in that kind of company, it is no wonder she has been able to endure a career of longevity that many artists themselves cannot claim.

Collins� and her fiery, world-class band, The Taylor P Collins Band consists of some of
the finest musicians in the industry. It is through her collaboration with Pamela Charlles
Arthur (Keyboards), Levi Lloyd (Guitar), Jeff Chambers and Bryan Yoshida (Bass),
Jason McIntosh (Drums), Michael Peloquin (All Saxes and Harmonica), Mike Parykaza (Trumpet), Mike Rinta (Trombone), and with Collins on Lead and Background Vocals that they are consistently club, venue and festival favorites.

Noted for their crowds favorites of such songs as Bluesified, Bring Me Down Blues,
Never Make Your Move Too Soon, At Last, Fundamental, Fill Me Up, Let The Good
Times Roll, Wrap Me Up, Bluesified, and The Train Don't Stop Here Anymore(Tribute to Miss Ruth Brown), it stands to reason why Collins and her band have received the distinct honor as "The Blues Band of the Year" by Northern California Entertainers Music Awards (NCEMA). Collins was also nominated Female Blues Artist of the year, two years consecutively, and Entertainer of the Year.

Ms Taylor P Collins and her namesake of gifted musicians have performed at the San
Jose International Jazz Festival; the Sacramento Heritage Festival & The Northern
California Entertainers Music Awards Show; the Fountain Blues Festival; the Vallejo
Jazz Festival and AT&T�s Golf Tournament in Carmel Valley; PAL Redwood City Blues
Festival,l just to name a few.

They recently performed to an impressive crowd at The Monterey International Blues
Festival and are slated to appear in August at The Sonoma County Blues Festival at
SOMA Village, where they will perform Collins� latest single, Strong, Confident
Woman. They will also be headlining at The Middletown Mansion and Event Center
Concert Series in October in Middletown, CA; and appearing at Club Fox in Redwood,
CA in November.

Ms Taylor P Collins� professionalism and continued achievements can be attributed to
her continually reinventing herself, staying true to herself and, more importantly, always
keeping her head to the sky.
