A native of Brunswick, Ohio, Taylor discovered his passion for singing at the age of 12 while playing Lamar in his middle school production of Godspell. Shortly thereafter, he, like many artists before him, began singing in church. Taylor continued singing at Masses throughout his high school years, while also singing in his high schoolâs (Saint Ignatius) Men's Chorus and a cappella group (the Cat-âo-Tonics); while also getting involved in various musical productions in the Cleveland area. The time he spent studying acting, dance and voice were integral to his development as a performer.
Upon graduation from high school, Taylor decided to pursue his dreams as a performer. He studied at Fordham College at Lincoln Center in New York City and Baldwin-Wallace University's Conservatory of Music in Berea, Ohio. In the summer of 2010, Taylor made a move that would change his life and transform his future career as an artist. After receiving his acceptance letter, he packed up and moved to Boston to begin his studies at the infamous Berklee College of Music. While at Berklee, Taylor studied various forms of music, making him well versed in the worlds of Pop, Rock, R&B, Soul, Country, and Jazz while also keeping his Classical and Music Theatre roots. On top of his singing, his studies at Berklee helped him hone and perfect his stage performance skills and form a solid understanding and respect for the music industry as it operates today.
Taylor was recently spending time in the studio with songwriter, producer, close friend, and fellow Berklee graduate, Garrett Eaton, with whom he works on original music. The product of such collaboration, âMaintain New Type of Swag â The EP,â is set to release itâs first single January 1, 2014.
