The Julian Taylor Band is a culmination of long-lasting friendships and a collective of accomplished musicians from the GTA, all fluent in different musical cultures and in virtually every genre. With frontman Julian Taylor’s direction, the band consistently delivers soulful performances and strives to re-contextualize “soul music,” not as another genre that can be put into a box defined by racial precedent or sound requirements, but as a medium that truly speaks to the soul.
Lead singer and songwriter Taylor, is of both West Indian and Native Canadian descent, born and raised in Toronto. He began his music career as a teenager, playing at open stages around town and has honed his massive skills through hard work and a passionate, tenacious attitude. The band shares his approach and the result is solid, unabashedly positive performances of soul, rock and R&B fusion – or rather, a form of modern rhythm and blues infused with rock ‘n’ roll.
The Julian Taylor Band is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
