Tai Verdes, born Tyler Colon, grew up in Southern California. He learned to play the piano, guitar, and ukulele as a kid. After high school, he went to Babson College and played on their basketball team. Tai eventually dropped out of school to pursue his passion for music full-time. He worked for a phone store during the day while spending nights working on his music. In 2020, he posted the song “Stuck in the Middle” on social media and promised to release the track if the post got 1,000 likes. Little did he know that this would be his big break. The song went viral, getting Tai a deal with Arista. In 2021, he released his debut album TV with a combination of pop, hip-hop, and R&B elements.
