Franklin, Tenn – Provident Label Group artist Tauren Wells has had his debut radio single “Love Is Action” remain at the top of the Christian Hot AC radio chart for 8 straight weeks. His very strong follow up single “Hills and Valleys” heads to radio this month. Both songs are available on Wells EP release Tauren Wells – Undefeated EP at iTunes and at all digital service providers and streaming services.
Tauren Wells is the former frontman of Royal Tailor, a Provident Label Group/Sony Music act whose two albums over a five-year-career – Black & White (2011) and Royal Tailor (2013) – garnered two GRAMMY® nominations and a nod for New Artist of the Year from the GMA’s Dove Awards.
This past May, Wells debuted his first solo effort with the impactful “Undefeated,” featuring Reach Records’ rapper KB. The song also served as the soundtrack for the internet-famous Dude Perfect’s “World Records Edition” episode on YouTube, which has garnered more than 36 million views since its release.
“Undefeated” is just a taste of Wells’ unconventional style. “I’m not trying to be famous or cool for the sake of being cool,” he explains. “I want to say something that impacts people.”
Wells’ hit single “Love Is Action” describes where he is now as a 30-year-old recording artist embarking on a solo career. Nobody changes the world standing in the crowd / Nobody’s voice is ever heard until you open your mouth.
“I have more awareness of who I am, what I want to say and where I want to go,” Wells shares. “I can’t say that I had that at 22. I feel provoked to do something and I want it to be multi-dimensional. I want the listener to feel inspired, but also to ask questions. I feel like the music is the runway to taking people somewhere.”
Residing in Houston, Wells and his wife are raising two young children and building their life around music and ministry. In addition to his music career and serving on staff at his father-in-law’s church, he and his wife launched Prisma Worship Arts School two years ago. Prisma, a private music academy with two locations in the Houston area, has grown exponentially in a short time, already employing 20 “Dream Coaches” and teaching 100 students. Their hands are full but Wells feels compelled to do more. His wife champions the idea: “We said from the beginning that this is a family calling.”
“I feel called to call greatness out of people,” Wells shares. “If people have spoken a low expectation of someone’s life, I want to be the voice that raises the ceiling and makes them feel like they can do something great.”
