About Tayma Loren
Like bees to honey, Tayma’s passion for her craft is more than an attraction, for her it’s an addiction. It was evident, that since the day this virgo was born into one of Detroit’s elite musical families, Tayma (originally spelled Thema) which means Queen in Swahili has been enamored in every aspect of performance. Being influenced by Shirley Murdock, Whitney Houston, Brandy and Kim Burrell to name a few, she emerged into singing in church and the school choir.
Once out of high school she got the introduction to her music career when she moved to New Jersey with her brother Carlos “Da Maestro” Mckinney (the producer behind J. Holiday's "Bed" and The Dream's "Shawty is a 10" among others). With the guidance of her brother she was signed to be the first girl group “Lyric” on J Records. After gaining time in the spotlight for a few years and trying other groups that didn’t pan out, she took a step back and realized that it probably wasn’t in the cards for it to happen that way.
Venturing off on her own displaying the experience and knowledge she acquired from her stint in the industry and with her brother Carlos by her side making them one of the first brother/sister teams in the industry. It is time for this driven songtress to take center stage.
Tayma’s single “Tipsy” is set for 2008 release which will capture your ears to this sweet songtress sound.
