Today’s SOTD is “Jazzonia” by 20 year old Adam Taylor from Lancaster, PA. “Jazzonia” is the leading track off his second album No Poet, which was produced by his older brother, Chad Taylor of the multi-platinum selling rock band LIVE.
Taylor has seen his share of success since the 2009 release of his first EP, Play the Piano Drunk, an intimate, swaggering look at contemporary society. He twice played at Summerfest in Milwaukee, the world’s largest music festival. Through online networking, social media, and a strong relationship with his fan-base, he was able to accrue funding for No Poet in less than 72 hours. But Taylor stays humble and true to his craft.
“My mind is occupied enough to grab ideas out of the air. Writing a song is an incredibly vulnerable process. I’d rather be caught masturbating than writing a song. I write in the car because that’s where I want people to listen to my music, with their windows down, singing every word.”
