Feeling a bit camera shy


hat happens when three guys with totally different musical backgrounds find themselves in need of roommates?

Taylor Roberts Music

Taylor Roberts Music, often called TRM, had its early beginnings when Taylor Roberts, a well-known Raleigh-based songwriter, needed someone to share a house with, preferably someone who could tolerate and might actually enjoy music at all hours of the day and night. Taylor called up Brian Tavener, a friend of a friend who also needed a new home. While meeting one afternoon to scope each other out as roommates, they decided to jam for a bit with Taylor on guitar and Tavener on bass. As he was about to leave, Taylor said, “Hey, man, why don’t you play that drum thing over there?” That drum thing was a djembe, and Taylor dug Tav’s percussion skills so much that he became a fixture at Taylor’s shows starting the very next month.

Enter Mark Nippert, a software guy who was classically trained in violin and, incidentally, Taylor’s roommate during and after college. Whether it was a conscious decision or merely a moral obligation to make him feel better about himself, Taylor invited Nippert to jam one night at rehearsal. Lo and behold, it actually sounded good, and when Tavener nearly jumped through a window in his excitement at this new sound, Taylor was convinced. Mark had to be in the band.

After repeated requests from fans that the trio release an album with this unique lineup, Taylor Roberts Music has consented. “Show and Tell,” a fantastic blend of killer songwriting and energetic arrangements, has just been released to mass appeal. And we all know what happens next… they hit the road.
