Demetria Taylor was born in Chicago in 1973, she's the daughter of legend Eddie "Playboy" Taylor and the sister of Larry Taylor and Eddie Taylor Jr, also prominent Chicago bluesmen.

Taylor is proud to be the new recipient of the KoKo Taylor “Queen of the Blues” Award in 2022 given by the Jus’ Blues Foundation.


Gospel roots / incredible blues singer / Demetria Taylor does not wait / With only two albums, both released  by Delmark Records in the last decade, Demetria shares with Shemekia Copeland and Deitra Farr the torch of Chicago blues to side with Zora Young and nora jean bruso and take forward for and take over from the great diva Koko Taylor and more recently from Big Time Sarah or Deborah Coleman / The band that joins Taylor is led by suprem guitarist Mike Wheeler, who has brought two members of his blues band to the studio, bassist Larry Williams and keyboardist Brian James, all of them joined by drummer Melvin Carlisle and guests as guitarists Carlos Showers and Billy Flynn / As it happened in her first album "Bad Girl", the singer Deitra Farr sings in one of the songs, "Blues Early This Morning"/ Demetria is a unique singer, her vocal strength is amazing, she dominates each song with untimely force and deep devotion, a personal recipe to sing the blues from the most rebellious side / An artist musician who, with only two released albums, achieves an aura of authenticity and evidence, often becomes a cult musician / This is not the case with Demetria Taylor, the most persuasive female blues singer and the most generous.
