Biography

How does one describe the honest and gentle sound of Julian Taylor? His voice is as real as the heartfelt words that support it. With a guitar in hand, Julian writes beautiful alternative folk rock songs that warm the heart and soothe the soul. He sings of love and loss, while embracing life and the abundant beauty that surrounds us all.

Two years in the making, his debut solo album Blank Tape Levy is a collection of nine carefully crafted and produced songs.

The first version of the album was stolen while still in progress. In late 2007, a few hooligans broke into the studio where it was being recorded and made away with as much gear as they could get their hands on; the hard drives that were incubating the original master were gone, and the album vanished.

JT and producer Ed Zych were forced to re-record the album from scratch. Blank Tape Levy was finally completed on Feb 4th, 2009. The result is an incredibly rich, wonderfully layered record full of warmth and emotion.

Signed to Warner by the age of 19, Julian has his share of stories from being actively involved in the music industry for the past 15 years. As the lead singer of Toronto’s own Staggered Crossing since the age of 14, he has toured across Canada more than a half dozen times, and has enjoyed the rewarding successes that come from witnessing a lifelong dream blossom into fruition. In 2003, Julian Taylor founded Bent Penny Records – a Toronto-based indie label dedicated to helping great independent artists.
