Tom Taylor

Tom Taylor’s home in the extreme northwest part of Washington State lies within the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains, a sunny anomaly in the otherwise rainy Pacific Northwest. So it’s fitting that Taylor’s music carries a brightness and clarity that radiate from his solid, authentic presence and rock-steady Christian faith. At 37, he’s been blessed. Tom's straightforward motivation is to touch people's lives with his music, to glorify God and make a difference for His kingdom. His Christian- influenced songs each present a meaningful piece in his journey, and he’s a gifted wordsmith who creates songs that connect and inspire.

The artistic leg of his journey began over a decade ago. When Taylor was in his mid-20s, he had grown tired of making ends meet by delivering pizzas. On the brink of the impending birth of his first son, he and his wife were ready for another life-changing event, and with the strength of his convictions boosting him, Taylor took a literal leap of faith. After joining a Christian rock band that had answered his bulletin-board notice for a bassist, he began writing his own songs. That leap continues to carry him forward into an established career as a solo artist who’s recorded nine independent records since 2008. The unborn baby is now a preteen who sings and plays the bass guitar—and often performs with his dad. The family has also welcomed a second son.

Taylor’s music is a testament to his faith—across piano, guitar and devoted lyrics— with a vast songbook that visits both the ordinary and extraordinary points along the path down which he’s been led. And his songs bring listeners of every faith a haven of hope and light from within life’s shadows.
