With versatility and lyrical prowess on her side, Hip-Hop artist Exhale (born Tatyana Davis) exhibits a wide array of feelings within her music. Her two alter egos help with this – “Exhale” is the name given to her witty, high-energy, aggressive side, while “TAOP” (an acronym for The Art of Persuasion) represents a more vulnerable and poetic side of the artist.
Born in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and raised in Siler City, She gained a love for writing from an early age through books and music. She started writing poetry in middle school and eventually started rapping. Growing up, she gained musical influence from the likes of Lauryn Hill, Wale, Left-Eye, and Andre 3000, and was encouraged to start making and performing music in mid-2019. Since then, she has performed at numerous venues all over North Carolina, making herself a familiar face in the NC music scene within a short period. In late 2019 she opened for Asian Doll, and in early 2020 she opened for SCMG’s Big Mali. After receiving radio play for her single “Exhale Season,” Exhale TAOP dropped her debut EP of the same name in April 2020. With the fall release of her “The Feels” EP, Exhale shows why she is one of the most diverse and multi-layered artists emerging from the Carolinas.
