Where It All Started


Most of us have experienced a defining moment when it comes to music. Maybe it was the first time you heard James Brown or Otis Redding. It’s different for everybody, but we all know that moment when we first heard the music that changed everything for us.

Taye Cannon took a few minutes to sit down and talk about his defining musical moment: the sound that started him down the path to becoming a soul singer. Growing up in Alabama, Taye spent a lot of time listening to his dad’s record collection. One track in particular got his attention: Fats Domino‘s “I’m Gonna Be a Wheel Some Day.” The rest, as they say, is history. Tell ’em about it, Taye.
