Biography

Direct from a national TV series and tour, Taylor Mathews, 20-year-old singer and songwriter from Alexandria, LA is steadfastly pursuing his ambitions of becoming an accomplished singer, songwriter and touring musician. Taylor picked up the guitar at age 13 and passionately played and wrote songs for the next several years, along with singing and performing for anyone who would listen. With a little encouragement from his friends and family, he auditioned for a major national TV series. The judges and producers listened and immediately loved what they heard which landed him on the nation's most popular summer show, America's Got Talent.

Nervously walking onto the national TV stage for the first time, Taylor succeeded with his performance of a unique and plucky guitar rendition of the classic “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” which won over the three judges and the hearts of the 12MM Americans watching. Heavily influenced by his favorite musicians Jason Mraz, Ryan Tedder, and John Mayer, Taylor continued delivering fresh, original renditions of popular pop songs with his captivating voice and mesmerizing guitar playing week after week, which ultimately placed him among the top 10 finalists in the show’s finale. Following the series, Taylor immediately embarked on a national concert tour with the show’s finalists, playing large theatres to thousands of adoring fans each night.

WIth the recent release of his EP “Head Over Feeling” which debuted in the top 40 of the iTunes album chart, Taylor’s base of dedicated fans is quickly growing and includes over 7,800 followers on Twitter and 3,100 Facebook fans. He is continuing to write and record with Grammy-winning producers and songwriters to craft his debut album.
