Bullied gaming nerd turned world-renowned violinist shines in “Gateway”

Cecilia Music - published on 01/22/17

Famous for her video game covers, Taylor Davis now shares her original music:

The two things that made her famous are the very things she used to be bullied for: her love of violin and video games. But self-proclaimed “proud nerd” Taylor Davis decided not to let the bullying get the best of her: her classmate would not dictate her passions.

“I’m living proof that if you just follow what you’re passionate about in life and ignore the negative people who try and bring you down, you can create something really meaningful for yourself and others to enjoy,” shared David in an interview.

The talented young violinist – who is still an avid gamer – amassed an international following covering tracks from video games and movies. Now she is putting her her composition skills in the spotlight with her Odyssey album, featuring 12 original songs, all composed and mixed by Davis in her home studio.

Watch the stunning “Gateway” video above, and pick up the album on iTunes.
