Talay Riley Wikipedia
Talay Riley (born 10 July 1990) is a British singer-songwriter of Nigerian heritage signed to Island Records.
At the age of 18, Talay Riley signed his first major publishing deal with Global Publishing due to his No. 1 co-written UK single "Oopsy Daisy". His first artist appearance in 2009, when he appeared on rapper Chipmunk's single "Look for Me" which peaked at number 7 on the UK Singles Chart. He then went on to sign with Major Label Jive/Sony Records. Talay has toured with many UK/US artists including N-Dubz, Chipmunk, Skepta, Usher's sold out Arena tour & Trey Songz. Talay's YouTube and VEVO videos have amassed over 5 million views.
On 14 October 2015 Talay Riley announced through his Instagram that he had signed a deal with Island Records.
Talay Riley first remembers singing when he was four. As a boy growing up in East London, music was always around him, and he was first exposed to the music of the early 1990s by his older brother and sister. He doesn’t remember it, but he’s constantly reminded of moments in front of the bathroom mirror singing along to their MC Hammer CDs. Talay's brother Mike 'Scribz' Riley is a producer also signed to Sony Music Entertainment.
Talay's aim is for nothing lower than the stars, naming Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Beyoncé and James Brown as his greatest inspirations. But he has always been a talent hungry for a twist, studying the biggest names in a number of genres: Blues, Country, Indie, Reggae, Bossa Nova & Rock to name a few. He aims to stitch together a truly universal & unique sound, in his own words, "i love music, i can listen to anything as long as its good, and i want to continue making good music, because thats how you live forever".After Dark (2016)
