About Shawn Taylor Band
PALM COAST, FL
Shawn Taylor Band is a rocking Country Rock Band fronted by Singer/Songwriter Shawn Taylor. Based in Daytona This band was carefully put together with only the right musicians for the band. After years of playing and struggling with cover bands Shawn decided to take a step back and reevaluate where he was and where he wanted to go with his music. As a writer it didn't take long for him to decide what his next approach to music was gonna be. With a call to a good friend and bass player Allen Boyd it was clear that starting an all original band was the way to go. One more call to another friend Lance Helton (Drums) who jumped on board right away laying the ground floor for what was to become the foundation of the project. "We got together the first time and had a blast! Realized that this was what music was all about having fun and being creative." By the second rehearsal that sat down as a band an wrote there first song together as a band which was awesome. "I haven't done that since i was 14 in this garage band i was in..I have always missed those days" Shawn Says "And for the first time in along time i was able as a writer to write as a band which was pretty cool especially how good the song is and i think this is gonna define us as a band and a new sound as well. After getting the foundation together we were still missing something and was another guitar. The only thing with having to guitars it has to be the perfect guy and we had got an email from craigslist of all places by a guy named Kyle Williams. Turns out this kid was very good but not having much band an stage experience which in my mind was perfect. Little did he know hed be opening for CCR in a few weeks and he did awesome so i can say the lineup is finally perfect. We are all fans of music and our love for music has no boundaries. I think our sound now will resemble a little of everything from country to rock. The Drive By Truckers, Reckless Kelly, Montgomery Gentry and a little John Cougar mixed in might give you an idea but truly we are creating are own sound that no one is doing around here which is awesome. Recently Shawn Taylor Band has gotten to share the stage with Creedence Clearwater revisted, Blackberry Smoke and Ben Robinson.
