Demetria Taylor, the seventh child out of eight from the family of late Blues Legend Eddie Taylor Sr. Taylor who is now 38, is helping keep the legacy of her father (along with other Blues Greats) alive. Born in Chicago in 1973, Demetria was born into a Blues family. Not only was her father a Blues Artist, but her mother, Vera Taylor was also a Blues Vocalist. Demetria can recall distant memories when many Chicago Blues Legends would visit their house. Some of those artists were: Floyd Jones, Carey Bell, Sunnyland Slim, Johnny Littlejohn, Sam Lay, Willie Kent, Taildragger, Eddie Shaw, Johnny B Moore and Magic Slim. Growing up in a Blues Home, she could be found listening to some of her biggest influences such as: Etta James, Bessie Smith, Big Mama Thornton, and, most importantly, ”The Queen of the Blues” Koko Taylor (No Relation to the Eddie Taylor Family). “I love Koko so much. She’s sweet, she’s intelligent, and she gives me encouraging words,” Demetria says. Demetria's vocals has a wide range that can tear the roof of the house and bring angels down to earth. She enjoys singing the trademarks of her personal heroes but yet make the song belong to her. For instance she'll make you “knock down all the windows and kick down all the doors” with “Wang Dang Doodle” and prove to you that she's “Got What it Takes” because she is a “Hoochie Coochie Woman.” Demetria also likes to do some of her family's classics like “Take Your Hands Down” and “Bad Girl” (after her father's hit “Bad Boy”), and mom’s “Look Out.” She says, “I’m the new kid on the block, and I respect all the musicians and singers out there.”
