Yes, it has been a wild ride for 21 year-old singer/songwriter, Taylor McCall from Easley, SC.

“I knew the first time I heard his voice that this kid was special,” says long-time music executive Michelle Robertson of Charlotte Avenue Entertainment. “I was just hoping that the industry would recognize his unique talents too.” Well, now it has and this is only the beginning.
McCall grew up always loving music and listening to the rock bands of his day, but his interest was really piqued when he heard alternative folk artists like Mumford & Sons and Jason Isbell. At the age of 15, Taylor got his first guitar and began crafting songs. “Even though I was writing songs that I thought were pretty good, I was reluctant to play them for anyone because I was not very confident in my voice,” said McCall. While Taylor did not sing live until he was 18-years old, his vocals have since been recognized as “a once in a generation type voice” throughout the music industry.
Taylor McCall’s quick rise is unique and so are his songs. They paint interesting pictures and intertwine thoughtful lyrics with beautiful melodies. McCall has a knack for telling simple stories in the most interesting ways. Look for more big things to come….
