Tai Simmons (born September 8th, 2000) known professionally as Ulycess, is a rapper/singer and songwriter from a small town named Kamloops B.C, Canada. He began taking music more serious at the age of 14. Inspired by artists like Russ, Tory Lanez and Lil Skies he picked up on the smooth flow of R&B and modern trap, making up his own sound and melody whilst his town was showing love racking up 50,000+ plays on SoundCloud, Spotify and other services.
Ulycess grew up with three sisters and his lovely mother, his father was in and out of his life due to work. But still supported them no matter what. Being so, He is a ladies man and has grown up catered to women more closely. Eventually starting to experiment in the relationship scene, he evolved into a love struck young man who just wrote stories that he couldn't just express to anyone else at the time. At that point Ulycess realized the true meaning of making music and letting his stories be heard by others in hopes that they could relate or even just enjoy his music.
Making up his own sound and melody from just YouTube tutorials with basically some to no musical talent or backround, Ulycess shows to be a natural at his craft. Mixing, mastering and writing his first releases (on SoundCloud) whilst his small town was showing love racking up 50,000+ total plays on SoundCloud, Spotify and other services by the age of 16.
