Cory Taylor from "SWV Reunited" stars in the WE tv reality docu-series.

Virginia native Cory Taylor entered the music entertainment industry in 2005 as the Assistant Manager to Cheryl "Coko" Clemons, member of the multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated, R&B trio, Sisters With Voices, better known as SWV.

Cory supported Coko in the production of her first Gospel album, "Grateful," which received a Grammy nomination. In 2008, he accelerated to the role of full-time manager during the production of her second Gospel album, "The Winner in Me." Impressed by his professionalism, leadership and tenacity, Coko introduced Cory to Tamara "Taj" Johnson-George and Leanne "Lelee" Lyons of SWV. The group hired him as their full-time manager.

Cory fused his passion for music and artist development, founding 21 Voices Entertainment, a management-consulting entertainment agency. Clients include Kameelah "Meelah" Williams, formerly of 702. Cory was instrumental in securing a new album deal for SWV at Mass Appeal/E1 Entertainment in 2011 and oversees the SWV brand. Since inception, 21 Voices has worked with and secured music business for Carl Thomas, Kelly Price, Changing Faces, 112, Dru-Hill, Smokie Norful, Lisa Page Brooks, Isaac Carree, R.L. of Next, Faith Evans, Musiq Soul Child, Shanice and Meelah of 702.

In 2010, Cory founded the "RnB Spotlight," a monthly showcase hosted at the SOB's in New York City. The purpose of "Spotlight" is to open the curtain of opportunity for the next superstars to be discovered. Amateurs are given a platform to showcase their talents and gain local and national exposure in the R&B community.
