When Sydney, Australia-turned-L.A.-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Joel Taylor was born, the doctor turned to his mom and asked about his name.
“Like Billy Joel? Is he going to be a piano player?” Leaving Australia at 18 to seek his fortune in Hollywood, where, again like his idol, he plied his trade at local piano bars for the contents of a tip jar. Renting a room with noted, French, guitar-maker James Trussart, he was surrounded by a cast of musical characters that added color to his burgeoning, musical narrative. Absorbing these moments as a working musician and perfecting his song-writing craft, Joel’s solo career began.
In 2017 he debuted with his double single Two Sides. His unique blend of American soul music and emotional voice made his presence known as one of the new and exciting faces in the singer/songwriter world. "Two Sides", a piano driven, energized, ballad and B-side “What Good Is Love” a heartbreaking, acoustic love song set the stage for the next single, “Give Myself Away,” where Joel revealed his soulful, pop side.
Joel’s newest, “Moment’s Notice,” is “a gospel hymn about rebirth” inspired by his decision to move to the U.S. from Sydney, leaving a tense home that drives the story behind the song and it’s Lazarus connotations. Joel is finishing his debut EP coming top of the year, performing and connecting with new fans through music. “I’m ready to play every hole in the wall and then some in order to share my stories with the masses.”
