Nobody changes the world standing in the crowd, nobody's voice is heard until you open your mouth." - “Love Is Action” BY TAUREN WELLS

The lyrics from “Love Is Action” describe where Tauren Wells is as a recording artist embarking on a solo career. “I have more awareness of who I am, what I want to say and where I want to go,” he says. “I can't say that I had that when I was younger.”

Tauren is the former frontman for Royal Tailor. The group formed in college, but eventually, life pointed in other directions. The guys began to marry and start families. In 2015, the group parted ways to pursue individual interests. In many ways, pursuing a solo career felt like a complete reboot. In fact, May 2016 saw the release of Tauren's first music in three years. The hard-hitting "Undefeated" features rapper KB and serves as the soundtrack for the internet-famous Dude Perfect's “World Records Edition” episode.

It's a taste of the unconventional approach he and his team are planning. “I want to be a pioneer for Christian music, but I'm not trying to be famous or be cool for the sake of being cool,” he explains. “I want to say something that impacts people.”

Back home, Tauren and his wife, Lorna, have been busy building a life around ministry and music. In addition to serving on staff at her father's church in Houston (Royalwood), the two have launched a private music academy called Prisma Worship Arts School, which has expanded to two locations with twenty “Dream Coaches” and one-hundred students.

Throw a toddler, Kanaan, and newborn, Lawson, into the mix and their family surely has their hands full, but Tauren feels compelled to do more. His wife champions the idea: “We said this from the beginning: This is a family calling.”

His message? “I feel called to call greatness out of people!” Tauren says.

“If people have spoken a low expectation of someone's life, I want to be the voice that raises the ceiling, makes them feel like they can do something great.”

And, in the tough moments where he has to leave his family to travel, his vision of impacting lives spurs Tauren on, “Kanaan's starting to get old enough to understand that I'm leaving,” he says. “I tell him, 'You know why I'm leaving? To tell people about Jesus.”
