Biography

Chess Taylor is from the beautiful home county of Buckinghamshire. She has been lucky enough to sing internationally on cruise ships as a headline act whilst also touring UK hotels with a classical quartet. Chess takes a lot of her inspiration from Sarah Brightman as there is a certain similarity in the vocal quality they both share. Another role model is of course Katherine Jenkins as she is a hugely successful mezzo soprano and shares the same passion for classical crossover which Chess incorporates in her show. Her showmanship is truly enchanting in the way she portrays the meaning of the s ...

We had fantastic sunny weather, at a great wedding venue yesterday, and it was topped off by Chess's performance. We will always have memories of a complete and stunning set of songs. From the outset she was positive and friendly. We believed we'd made the right choice even before we met her. Chess responded positively to requests for songs which were new to her and worked the surprise we'd planned for Luke and Hannah, the bride and groom, supremely well. She has a lovely voice and guests continued to compliment her from the moment she started to sing and then throughout the day. We are still hearing those compliments today.
