'Space Case' Singer Taylor Grey Shares 10 Fun Facts With Us!

Taylor Grey is letting JJJ get to know her a bit more.

The talented singer just dropped her debut album Space Case, which you can listen to below!

“I wrote and recorded this last summer and am so happy to see if finally coming to life!” Taylor told us. “My focus was to make an album that you could could listen to anywhere, anytime. I wanted fans to be able to find a relatable song that fits their mood – whether on a road trip, having a dance party, chilling alone in their room.”

“With the help and guidance of Josh Abraham and Nico Stadi, we were able to create a unique sound that I like to call, ‘space pop,’” Taylor said. “However, Space Case is infused with elements spanning across all genres as well, all the way from alternative to country. This album is for all the young women and men out there who are growing up, experiencing life, and dreaming fearlessly.”

Check out 10 fun facts Taylor shared with us:

1. I wore vans to my junior prom despite being 5’2 because I find them more comfortable.

2. I have two freckles that look like eyes on my hand and when I’m sad, I draw a line and turn them into a smiley face.

3. I’vve accepted that life is too short to stop practicing your 50s dance moves everywhere.

4. I know all the words to the musicals Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen.

5. I love wearing denim on denim. I think, when done right, it’s super stylish and fun.

6. I passionately dislike grape juice and believe "hate" is a strong word.

7. I actually used that last fact as part of my Stanford application. I’m still not 100% sure why they let me in.

8. In high school, I used to flirt with people by saying “do you want to fight?” (don’t ask, I have no idea why) and one time a guy said “yeah” and he brought out boxing gloves and we fought.

9. In another life, if I were not pursuing music, I would want to be an astronaut.

10. I’m still debating whether to tell one of my friends that a song on my new album Space Case is about him!

1. I LOVE to cook. I’m Italian so it’s literally in my blood. I cook with clean, organic, healthy whole foods, and I love making new things. I have chicken tortilla soup on my stove right now. Oh, and I’m a professional at turning “there’s nothing in my kitchen” into a really rad meal!

2. I have 36 first cousins, 64 second cousins, and 28 third cousins. And that’s just on my Dad’s side! There’s a lot of love in this family. I’m grateful to have been born into it.

7. I love miniature pigs so much that even talking about them causes tears to well up in my eyes…and now I’m crying.

8. I moved to Nashville just over a year ago. It took me more than six months to completely move into my house because I travel so much.

9. I am shockingly good at yodeling. Found that out by accident in a studio to the surprise of my producers and team. (Don’t worry, not changing my sound – that much).

10. I date my manager…whoops.
