TAUREN WELLS is a celebrated platinum-selling recording artist, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, with 10 GRAMMY® Award nominations, six number 1’s, 225+ million career video views, six GMA Dove Awards, Billboard Music Award nomination, and over 1 billion global streams to date, and counting. Through his precise artistry, masterful lyrics, and dance-oriented performances, Tauren uniquely connects his contemporary Christian and Gospel sound with elements of pop, hip-hop and R&B.
Tauren debuted his solo music in 2017 with the pop hit, “Love Is Action,” which held the no. 1 spot at CHR radio for eight weeks. Soon followed the GRAMMY®-nominated and RIAA platinum-certified “Hills and Valleys,” a thought-provoking piano and cello-driven track that found a home on Christian Airplay’s Top 10 for several consecutive weeks.
In 2018, Tauren released “Known,” the RIAA gold-certified single which reached no. 1 on multiple charts including Christian Airplay and Christian AC Songs, while garnering him a 2019 GRAMMY® Award nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song and Billboard Music Award for Top Christian Song. His most recent collaboration with H.E.R., “Hold Us Together,” was nominated for a 2022 GRAMMY® Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song, along with a 2022 BET Award nomination and a 2022 NAACP Image Award nomination. His album Citizen of Heaven (Live) was up for 2022 GRAMMY® Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album and generated the RIAA gold-certificated single, “Famous For (I Believe)”.
Having toured with the iconic likes of Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey, this consummate performer averages nearly 90 shows a year across North America. In October, he will crisscross America on the “Joy in the Morning Tour,” his third headline outing (along with special guests Aaron Cole and Lakewood Music) in support of his latest album Joy In The Morning (June 2022) which features the hit singles “Fake It,” “Empty,” “Come Home,” and the title track.
