Taylor / Bio

Ever been on a motorcycle and a bug went down your throat? Well, Taylor’s music isn’t like that. Rather, it’s like sitting back on a sweet ride with music piped into your helmet as you cruise down the highway called life. You may even recognize some of what Taylor sings about, because the most frequent quote at her shows is: “Did you write that song about my life?”
Taylor S. Hoch’s unique music crosses many popular genres, delivering something for everyone. Her lyrics are poetry, direct and uncompromising, and at the same time hauntingly familiar. Her music wraps around her lyrics, creating symmetry of sound that emphasizes the emotions and themes of her songs. You may even recognize some of what Taylor sings about, because the most frequent quote at her shows is: “Did you write that song about my life?!”

“…Taylor is a prolific songwriter, top notch, with great songs…a great singer/songwriter, great finger-picking, boogie-woogie, blues, a little bit of country and some great rock and roll…absolute poetry put to music.” Her music is “timeless and there’s a great feel to it…”—Brad Posey of The Invisible City, WLRH FM 89.3

“…absolutely stunned [at her] high quality of songwriting, the high quality of her voice…amazing…blew me away. She is an incredibly talented person. The production on the album is outstanding!” –Joe St. John of Real Story Radio’s reaction to Taylor’s CD’s One More Time and Out of the Blue

“Her two CDs were so good … fabulous Band … fabulous everything!”—Chris Hanon of FlashpointOmnimedia.com

“…selecting from a plethora of newly crafted melodic euphony that only a dulcet weathered voice can echo…the kind of folk music where no emollient exists to cure the bumps her simplistic chords and deep echoing lyrics will leave behind on your skin…join her for a moment, open your heart and try to fathom how her voice couldn't betray the depth of still halcyon emotion flowing through her veins…” –Alabama Music Office, by Jerry W. Henry

“You absolutely blew my socks off! I believe in your music.” –Producer Jerry Masters, winner of 48 Gold and Platinum records, her current producer and bass player

“Taylor has an insight into life and the myriad of positive and negative issues involved with living it with the rare ability to poetically express those observations in her lyrics. Rock on sista!” –Blues great Big Joe Shelton

Taylor has written over two hundred fifty songs and has two albums available, Out of the Blue and One More Time. Her band members are Jerry Masters on bass, Eddy Russell on drums, & “Dr.” Jay Jernigan on lead guitar.
