After what feels like forever; my first mixtape is now available!
– click picture to listen on soundcloud –
I want to give a special thanks to my friend, Tawny for her incredible help with the photography for the main visual and to my fiancé and mentor, Anthony for helping guide me through this process and giving much needed insight. Also, thanks to everyone on social media, my friends, and my family for their never ending support. All of you contributed to this and I hope I did you proud.
This mixtape isn’t meant to be a hype tape or an incredible show of skill; but rather something that embodies me and my personality. I love to have those chill vibes with a hint of Sailor Moon and space. I hope that you will find yourself relaxing while listening.

Needless to say…it has been a l o n g while since I have last touched this website.
And if you haven’t been here for a while, you may have noticed a lot of things changed.
First things first; where have I been?
I haven’t done anything crazy, I promise. I just needed a break from a few things which included the website. I lost a lot of motivation for it to a point where after I made drastic changes, I just wanted to not look at it for a long time. It was heartbreaking to see Simply Taylor Rae go and replace it with something new…but I was mostly upset because I just didn’t have the creative spark I once did when I was updating the website on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. I kind of felt like I failed, I suppose? It was a weird feeling. So, I suppose to answer the question fully; I’ve been working, going to school, focusing on DJ’ing and trying to gain some sort of creativity and drive for the website and the youtube channel.
S E C O N D L Y; what happened to Simply Taylor Rae?
As I said before; I lost all drive for it and didn’t put the effort that I once wished for it. I didn’t want to maintain a site or a blog that I just didn’t have the heart for…so I re-did the site and made it more focused on my DJ’ing events and releases because I know for sure there will be content and it kind of releases me from the creative grasp I was trying to constantly achieve with Simply Taylor Rae. Needless to say, the old posts are still available to view so no worries there. But from here on out; my posts will now contain pictures, videos, and other bits of content from any events I attend, main releases, and behind the scenes here and there of whatever the heck I am doing. I know this will be much different than what I was posting prior…but I hope you all will continue to support me.
And finally; life updates!
Honestly; I don’t know if there’s much for me today. This past weekend, I celebrated my 25th birthday and let me tell you; that quarter life crisis is already sneaking up on me. I found out around Thanksgiving that I was going to be an aunt to a baby boy. I’m still in school and I’m still working, but life is pretty good so no complaints.
And I think that’s where I am going to leave it for today. Thank you guys for all of the support for the last 5.5 years and I hope I created content that made you smile or you were able to relate to. I hope I will continue to make you smile as I move on forward as a DJ. Here’s to the future…
