The Story of Taurus
Born on Malcom X Day, the Chicago artist Taurus was raised in the West Side, Fred Hampton neighborhood also known as Capitol Hill.
Growing up all over the Great Lakes region from Chicago to South Bend, Michigan City, Rockford, Madison, Bellwood and Milwaukee has given his Music Theatre and Therapy Movement a Soul of the Streets sound that music lovers will enjoy.
Taurus releases his first studio album, Prison Art circa 2019 as a 15 song LP that commands your attention from the opening track. "I want to be the very first to listen." Isthmus 2018
You can look at the life of Taurus and explain his musical history as Urban Lit: an autobiographical diary and narrative of the other side to America's youth or a conversation on Youth Culture and Prison Reform dialogue. However you look at it, that would be the tip of the iceberg.
A single-parent household, private school, criminal career, prison and poetry make for one very powerful album. And that's only part of the story.
From being number one in Chicago for more than two years and top 3 in the world on Reverbnation with his Evooize De Medici collection, Taurus comes to life right before our very eyes on his Prison Art album produced by Godxilla from the Great Lakes Triangle.
Prison Art goes behind the scenes of the artist the way a Classic is designed to. Taurus delivers a strong message as riveting testimony for Prison Reform and reform in our nation's laws while preparing for his upcoming tour.
