In 2019 Parx released her debut album, We Need To Talk, via Atlantic Records to widespread praise; The New York Times proclaimed, “The new album, like Parx’s best hits, is playful and conversational, blending pop, R&B and traces of rap with plenty of Grande-esque high notes,” while Rolling Stone called it “a solid pop manifesto from a child-star-turned-pop-savant.” Entertainment Weekly added, “[Parx] exploded as one of pop music’s go-to songwriters.”Taylor Parks, known by her stage name Tayla Parx, was born and raised in Dallas, TX, where she trained with legendary choreographer Debbie Allen who encouraged her to pursue acting and singing.
