LOUISIANA-BRED ACOUSTIC SINGER/SONGWRITER WITH SOUL AND 2010 AMERICA'S GOT TALENT TOP 10 FINALIST.
Six years and many experiences later…the 25-year-old singer/songwriter is continuing to sink his teeth into success as an independent artist.
In 2011, Taylor released his first EP, Head Over Feeling, which debuted in the top 40 of the iTunes album chart selling over 10,000 singles independently. He has a dedicated, growing fanbase of over 13,000 Twitter followers and 10,000 Facebook fans. The music video for Head Over Feeling was featured on Vevo’s home page, generated 100,000 views in one day and now has nearly 300,000 views on VEVO. It also received heavy TV rotation on Canada’s Family Channel.
In the spring of 2013, Taylor completed his second tour as direct support for R5, Hollywood Record's band, for 2 1/2 months throughout the U.S. and Canada. After the tour, he successfully funded a $26,000 Kickstarter campaign to record his first full-length record titled Do What You Want To. He wrote and recorded with Grammy-winning producers and songwriters to craft the album which was released on December 2nd, 2013 and debuted at #6 on the iTunes album chart. As a thank you, Taylor embarked on a 6 month/130 show tour across the US and Canada to play in the homes of fans that donated to the Kickstarter campaign.
In January, 2014, after the success of the Head Over Feeling video, Taylor filmed his second video for his current album title track Do What You Want To. This video also aired generously on the Family Channel in Canada.
That Fall, with his fans in mind, he created a unique touring experience called The Hotel Party Tour modeled after his music video for Do What You Want To. The first leg of the tour lasted 12 weeks. It was such a success that, after spending 2 months in Nashville writing and recording new music, he continued with an 8-week leg of the Hotel Party Tour in the Spring of 2015.
After the Hotel Party Tour, Taylor spent the rest of 2015 and much of 2016 writing and recording for his anticipated sophomore record. To keep in line with his writing season and each original approach in his career, he developed and completed a fan-songwriting tour across North America over this past summer. This tour gave each of Taylor's fans the opportunity to offer song inspiration that he could write about, adding to the library of songs that could make up his next record. He has written about 100 complete songs, 5 of which have been specially selected for release in the spring of 2017 on what is now officially called The Comfort EP.
