You may not have known her name until today, but you’ve absolutely heard some fruits of labor from Tayla Parx. This Dallas-born L.A.-based singer is a credited songwriter on Billboard blowouts like Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next”, “Love Lies” by Khalid and Normani, “Infinity” from Mariah Carey, and Christina Aguilera’s “Accelerate”…and that’s just scratching the surface. As a solo singer, Parx caught plenty of ears with her 2017 mixtape Tayla Made, premiered her first full-length We Need To Talk in 2019, and followed that up the next fall with her sophomore record Coping Mechanisms.
As you can tell, Tayla Parx has paved a name for herself as a hungry songwriter and must-have collaborator. But she really shines when she’s on stage, mic in hand, something she hasn’t been able to do for more than a year. You’ve got a chance to experience just that tonight at Container Bar, where Tayla Parx co-headlines the Dr. Marten’s Showcase along with Dawn Richards. So peruse Parx’s repertoire when you can, and treat yourself to something from Femme It Forward’s Big Femme Energy Vol. 1 on behalf of Women’s History Month with the Tayla Parx feature “Mother Nature”.
