Primary Instrument: Guitar

Tom Taylor is an internationally known guitarist/composer whose music is a hybrid of jazz, classical, rock and even a dash of blues and bluegrass. His new CD, Home, features the world-renowned Turtle Island String Quartet. Listen to excerpts at itunes.com, cdbaby.com/cd/taylortom2 and (soon) www.tom-taylor.com

Tom is one of the winners of Musician Magazine's “Best Unsigned Band” contest. His winning entry from The Crossing, “Aubade,” is described as “the hardest tune I ever had to record” by mandolin virtuoso David Grisman. When Tom's full orchestral arrangement of “Big Basin Breakdown” (also from The Crossing, with guests the Kronos Quartet) received its European premier, it brought down the house at the famed Hercules and Prinzregenten theatres in Munich, Germany. Its blend of bluegrass, jazz, and baroque melodies received a 5-minute standing ovation! Listen to excerpts at iTunes.com, www.tom-taylor.com and cdbaby.com/cd/taylortom...
