In a time when music is molded around commercialism and "cookie-cutter” lyrics, Taylor Henry still fights to keep the true craft of a singer/songwriter alive. Often referred to as an "oldsoul,” he expresses lyrics and melodies of quality far beyond his 24 years. With original songs like "Me & You” and "You're Everything,” there’s no wonder why Taylor sparks the interest of listeners wherever he goes.
Taylor’s foray into music truly began when he and his family visited Nashville for his 16th birthday, where he met James Taylor, during his One Man Band Tour. Of the experience, Taylor says, "James is the guy who ruined me. I might have had a more responsible life, gone to college, gotten a degree. Instead, I’m out here spinning my wheels for just enough money to get to the next gig, and, I love it!” He has spent the past five years living between Nashville and Cincinnati (with a year stint in Europe), performing with the likes of The Charlie Daniels Band, The Marshall Tucker Band, Bo Bice, The Grascals, Linda Davis, Blake Shelton, and many notable songwriters of Music City.
With his soft voice and crooked smile, he captivates virtually anyone within listening distance, despite lacking the smoke and lights of modern artists. And that, is what music is all about.
Taylor has played a variety of events from opening acts for big bands and musicians for over 10,000 people to small benefits hosting about 500 people. He enjoys any opportunity to play and would love to speak with you further about any events that you have interest with him performing.
