Kit Taylor is an undiscovered gem. Handsome and charismatic with a beautiful and soulful baritone.
An award-winning Pianist and Singer/Songwriter, Kit is also involved in modeling, acting, and writing.
"Kit is a blend of John Mayer and Jamie Cullum, but with better pitch"
- Bob Stark (Everclear, Esperanza Spalding), award-winning engineer/producer.
Just in the past few months, Kit has toured with King Clifton - opening for internet and Billboard sensation AWOLNation (Sail) on a West Coast tour; joined legendary cellist Dave Eggar (Evanescence, Bruce Springsteen) for a performance also featuring stunning New York vocalist Sasha Lazard; and accompanied the exotic Shoshana Bean (Broadways 'Godspell' and 'Wicked') onstage for a benefit performance. Shoshana also had a hit on Billboard with her single "Superhero".
"Kit Taylor plays with great emotion and depth. From what I have heard he has a wonderful insight into music."
- David Friesen, Academy Award nominated recording artist.
Over the past few years Kit has played at venues throughout the country, worked with and been interviewed by multiple press outlets, and been associated with names such as Lifehouse, The Neville Brothers, Kansas, Hall & Oates, Blessed Union Of Souls, LIVE, Jim Brickman, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, among others.
With the band Safire, Kit just released a single he wrote called "Half A Man". It's a rock/fusion opus featuring a deliciously funky groove and some luscious harmonies, as well as Steve Killen's ridiculously crushing electric guitar.
Kit also just released a solo piano album, "Evolution", recorded by award-winning engineer and Producer Bob Stark. It's currently available on iTunes and all major music outlets.
Currently working towards an appearance on NBC's "The Voice", there is always more to the story. See the "Resumes" page on his website or contact Kit for more details.
"One year later and 'One Trick Man' still makes me smile as much as any Weather Report tune I've ever heard."
- Bob Stark (Everclear, Esperanza Spalding) , award-wining engineer, on Kit's band 'Intervision'.

A variety of solo piano music. Everything from soulful/funky standards, to uptempo pop/rock. Energy, charisma, interaction.
