As a woman with deep roots in music and a soulful, folk-rock sound, it is no wonder why Kate Taylor has encountered great success with her music career.

Beginning at the age of 15, Taylor immediately immersed herself in music by fronting her own band. By 19, Taylor signed her first recording contract with Atlantic/Cotillion Records under the management of the well-known producer, Peter Asher. From this point on, Taylor’s music career skyrocketed.

The first studio album, “Sister Kate,” featured Taylor’s first charting hit, a cover of Elton John’s “Country Comfort.” She then went on to record two studio albums for Columbia Records titled, “Kate Taylor” and “It’s in There.” The first album was produced by her brother, James Taylor, and the second album was produced by Nashville’s Barry Beckett.

The sibling duet, “The Shoop Shoop Song,” off of her album “Kate Taylor” became her second charting hit single with the help of her brother James. The song is still well-received today.

With musical releases in the following years, Taylor received more nationwide attention, and even Rolling Stone magazine awarded her song, Beautiful Road, with three stars in their music review.

Taylor has never stopped sharing her passion for folk-rock music with audiences, and recently has performed at the Newport Folk Festival, the WUMB/Boston Folk Festival, and Nashville’s Blue Bird Café.

Her next performance will be on August 4 at 9 p.m. at the Knickerbocker Cafe in Westerly, R.I.

A member of an extremely musical family, Taylor was born in Boston, however moved with her family to Chapel Hill, N.C. Taylor expressed that although music ran in the family, each Taylor had different styles and ideas for their music.

“An artist might take the same oil paint, and make a completely different painting than another person, said Taylor. Everybody’s got their own way of expressing themselves.”

Some things never change and some things we don't ever want to change. Thankfully, James Taylor hasn't.
