Biography:
Taylor Davis is a classically trained American violinist, arranger and composer, whose passion for video game and film music led her to launch her widely popular YouTube channel "ViolinTay" in 2011. As of January 2015, Davis' channel has attracted over 650,000 subscribers and over 85 million video views. The majority of her cover videos feature a wide variety of video game, film and anime themes.

Davis has also released a number of original singles and plans to release a full album of original music in February, 2015. Davis has released 5 full length video game, anime and film theme cover albums, a full length Christmas album and 15 singles. Davis arranged and produced all of the fully orchestrated backtracks that accompanied her violin solos for her first 3 albums.

For her latest 3 albums, she collaborated with arranger and producer Adam Gubman to arrange and produce her orchestrations. Besides posting regularly on her YouTube channel, Davis has also been hired to perform violin solos on soundtracks in the video game industry and can be heard most recently as the violin soloist for "The Banner Saga" composed by Grammy-Nominated composer Austin Wintory.

Davis has also performed live at a number of unique events ranging from concerts sponsored by NVIDIA at the E3 Expo (July 2012), to performing in London and New York as part of the Titanic II global press launch (February 2013), as well as at other industry conventions and events. In late 2013 she joined the newly formed video game rock band "Critical Hit" led by Blizzard Entertainment games composer Jason Hayes.

Starting in April 2014, Davis has been performing her own live shows in a number of cities across the US and plans to continue touring in 2015. She began studying the violin at age 8 and continued her classical training through college where she graduated magna cum laude in 2009 from Gonzaga University with a degree in Public Relations and a minor in Violin Performance.
