Taylor’s songs are inspired by the primeval crookedness of traditional old-time music, the humor and heartbreak of Randy Newman, the cosmic emotionality of mid-career Joni Mitchell, and the sage vulnerability of Bill Withers. Somehow, he finds a way to make this all work on the clawhammer banjo.

Having spent most of his teens and 20s as frontman of Vancouver-based five-piece Fish & Bird, his most recent finds him swapping songs with Grammy-nominated songwriter and guitarist Courtney Hartman, on the pair’s 2018 duo album Been On Your Side that Rolling Stone described “packs a punch in today’s mainstream”.

Taylor is excited to release and tour his debut solo recording “The Romantic” coming out on Signature Sounds in February 2020.
