Taylor’s passion for drumming started at the age of eleven. After high school, he was accepted into the USC Jazz Studies program. Upon completing a semester of studying Jazz, he decided that he wanted to branch out and play other styles of music. Since then, Taylor has played with a variety of groups such as Buddhist Monkey, Vertices, Ill-Funk Nation, and Latch Key Kid to name a few. He has also had the pleasure of playing on tour, opening on the West Coast, for the Wailers. Taylor currently plays with the bands Extra Lives and Purple Sugar. He loves funk, soul, reggae, hip-hop and anything that is good ol’ real soulful music! Taylor truly enjoys sharing his love of music and drumming, especially with young, up-and-coming drummers.
