No stranger to hard work, Taylor literally crawled through a river of shit to get where he is today – releasing his (actual, first ever original) debut single, and with a string of follow-up releases in the pipeline that have already been turning heads – including Whitney Daane (Kobalt; Maverick) who signed Taylor to her Kobalt joint venture Daangerous Entertainment in August 2019.
Only 5 short years ago, while many of his peers were heading off to college, Taylor went to work pouring cement, laying sod, and…yes…trudging through excrement while cleaning sewers in Cape Coral, Florida – saving up money til he could hang up his badge at the water reclamation department, thoroughly wash his hands, and follow his dream to Music City. It was quickly obvious to everyone he enocountered that Taylor had brought that work ethic with him when he moved to Nashville, paying his dues with a smile as he relentlessly made the rounds through writers rooms and the local stages – ultimately catching the attention of Trey Bruce (Emmy winning songwriter; discovered/signed Chris Janson and Brothers Osbourne) who signed Taylor to a management deal with his company GaloreMGMT in the Fall of 2018.
Taylor’s debut single Dancin’ By Herself is an uptempo, classic rock n’ roll anthem with country and blues roots that melds Honky Tonk grit and swagger with the slickness and energy of an 80‘s power sing-a-long. One of four songs produced by Trey Bruce that will be released in the coming months, Dancin’ By Herself makes an immediate statement as a lead single with clear nods to some of Taylor’s most direct influences – including Eric Church, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, and Bob Seger – and is a compelling introduction to Taylor’s own unique genre/style mashup that he somewhat Osmond-ically (though not at all ironocially) describes as “a little bit old school country, a little bit rock and roll, and a little bit drunk on the beach.”
Thanks for listening and stay tuned for more!!
