Tay Smith | BYSB TAlent Agency
TAY SMITH is a budding young industry talent on the rise! Only 31 years old, he is one of the founding members of BYSB Talent Agency, teamed with business partner Christopher Young.
Based in Atlanta, the number two market for film production, he and his team commandeer the southeast region of the US as a force to be reckoned with. They are steadily rocking and rolling with new talent acquisitions and television and film bookings for their clients. Bringing his big talent agency experience to their new boutique firm, the BYBS’ current roster includes some of the hottest cutting-edge entertainers in the business.
Tay Smith got his start early on when he started and headed his own music production company, Yungsta Entertainment based in North Carolina. As a young teen he ran a staff of producers, artists and writers. Quickly gaining traction with lead recording artist T-LyriQ, Tay’s Yungsta Entertainment became the talk of the city, positioning him as the “P-Diddy” of his town. Upon taking a trip to uncover the booming music scene of Atlanta, Smith kept hearing about Christopher Young and his legend. Making it his goal to meet Young, he finally tracked him down and established a mentor/business advisor relationship. The business arrangement proved fruitful and lead to deeper inroads in the music world.
The two young men are fondly referenced as Smith & Young throughout the southeast and considered two of the hottest Black talent agents on the southern scene!
