Talent, character, and charisma are all essential elements that got Te’Vaun Stephens, artistically known by Tay Da Prince, where he is today. From an early age, his passion for music has allowed the young artist to hone his talent for creating art. It doesn’t hurt that he comes from a talented, musical family — John Legend is his EGOT-winning (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony) uncle, and his father, Vaughn Anthony Stephens, is also a vocalist who exposed the artist to a diverse caliber of music and sounds.
With an unquestionable desire and talent to succeed, Tay Da Prince started writing and performing music at a young age. With time, his writing and musical growth progressed, and he started crafting his sound. Drawing inspiration from R&B, jazz and gospel music, infused with old school hip-hop, J. Dilla and Kanye West are some of Tay Da Prince’s aural influences and is felt in his first single, “No Doubt.” The debut track offers a candid and introspective look in to the mind of an emerging artist battling between the confidence and fear within himself.
The grounded 20-year-old musician’s writing and themes go far beyond his years and is reflected in his passion for his community and larger societal issues. The young artist’s talents and outlook has been shaped by his environment and family. When asked about the inspiration for the song and what makes it special Tay Da Prince stated, “I was inspired by issues such as gun violence within my community and the lack of love displayed among people in today’s society. What makes this song so special is that it’s a universal call to love not in word only, but with actions.”
With a career that’s only beginning, look for more inspiring music and bigger initiatives from the socially conscious artist.
