Meet NYC's very own Talia Goddess (Tayahna Walcott) — the 19-year-old barrier breaker, music shapeshifter, multi-hyphenate who has solidified her status as a young, creative powerhouse. She merges her many talents as a self-taught singer-songwriter, rapper, music, producer, DJ, model, multi-instrumentalist, creative entrepreneur, and community leader to galvanize the next generation of creatives and push culture forward.
Co-signed by the likes of A$AP Ferg, at the forefront of global campaigns with Converse, Nike, Tommy Hilfiger, MCM and editorials with Vogue, Refinery29, i-D, the queer vocalist-rapper hybrid seeks to leave her mark in a tangible form, impacting people through the words and rhythms that ultimately mirror how they feel inside, but can’t find the words to adequately express.
Determined to not be confined by the bounds of societal pressures, industry standards, social conditioning, the trailblazing songbird, a multi-instrumentalist has cultivated her own identity and seeks to bring various forms of art and expression under one umbrella in an unconventional way. An alchemist of words, an astute leader and cultural innovator, Talia Goddess is determined to help foster a safe and inclusive space for queer, Black people such as herself and redefine and challenge the norms and expectations placed upon youth.
