Taylor was born and raised in Saskatoon. From even before he was born, he loved music, and the love affair lasted for all his 32 years on this earth. Taylor was always creative and artistic; as well as musical. He was a musician and a talented songwriter. He took piano and guitar lessons as a young boy and played percussion in the school band. After graduating from Bishop James Mahoney High School. Taylor went down to California to study Entertainment Music Management. From there he moved to Toronto to pursue a career in the music industry. Taylor was often hired as a ghost writer by various musicians, and over the years he established a solid reputation with his writing and musical skills. During his first years in Toronto, as he persevered on his music, he also worked at several bars such as SOHO House and restaurants. He became a talented mixologist. Taylor was definitely a people person and he thrived in that environment. As Taylor made more contacts and gained experience in the music industry, he was lucky to travel to Nashville, New York City, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Vancouver and even Hong Kong with various music projects.

But even though Taylor was a talented musician and song writer; first and foremost, he was a good loving member of his family in Saskatchewan. He was also a loyal friend to many individuals across Canada. On his trips home to the Prairies he always tried to touch base with as many people as possible.

Taylor was a hard working, talented and charismatic young man. All those who knew him are devastated by his sudden passing. It is a terrible shock that will never go away. His family would like to honor his love of music by enabling other young people with the chance to follow their musical dreams.
