Young musician and performer Grant Austin Taylor reaches more than just the ear as a guitarist on stage. He touches the soul with his sophisticated, yet, emotional playing style. Having taken the stage as a guitar player at the tender age of eight, Grant absorbed early on the exhilarating rush of stage life as an audience of 3500 repeatedly chanted his name. This was the fuel that he needed to add to the fire of his guitar playing. Eventually, Grant branched out more into lead guitar playing due to the inspiration of his mentor Henry Johnson. Throughout the past five years, Grant has opened for some national acts such as Motley Crue, Aerosmith, and Steve Miller. He has also received the following awards: America--s Most Talented Kids (May 2005), and Outstanding Blues/Rock Artist (Young Artist Awards/March 2007). Grant--s sound is a mix of rock, blues, country, and jazz. His original songs are a compilation of feelings experienced through various relationships in life.
