"Taylor Young Band follows in the footsteps of melodic jangle pop rockers from the ‘60s through the ‘80s (think The Byrds, Big Star, and The Plimsouls), but gives it their own distinctive modern twist, making it at once familiar yet innovative."
" Young and producer-bandmate Toby Pipes of Deep Blue Something recorded and played most of the instruments at Pipes’ home studio in College Station. At times sounding like a twangy Teenage Fanclub, these 10 original songs embrace all the hallmarks of vintage ‘70s power pop, including soaring choruses, chiming guitars and hopeful romanticism. The results are not just irresistible – they’re timeless. " - David Yokamoto
“A creative flair of charismatic rock that conjures up 70’s power pop, radio-friendly wails, and inspirational anthems. The four-piece convey a sense of songwriting strength and power that reflects Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Lord Huron and Caamp.”
We’re from Texas. Taylor was a touring drummer (Young Heart Attack, Polyphonic Spree), then started writing songs (The O’s), and now has a band full of friends from the Texas music scene: Toby Pipes (Deep Blue Something), Josh Hoover (Calhoun), Kenny Wayne (Leon Bridges).
From power pop to new wave to country, Taylor Young Band brings a fresh look with their debut record “Mercury Transit” out March 2020.
