I want to work with all types of musicians who are aimlessly searching for the type of music they want to create or anyone who already has a vision of what they are looking to make. A word, a note, even an idea of a song you have is more than enough to work with. I would love to help you write songs, record, and produce them.
I'm a 22 year old living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn and currently in my senior year at Pace University for Philosophy and Religious Studies. Music is my actual passion, and I would love to help others create the sound they want to make. I'm a guitarist, bassist, song writer, and producer.

Interview with Taylor J. Crawford
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Talk my ear off. I want to hear every suggestion you have and what you love or hate about the project I'm helping you with. It should be an honest project.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Acoustic Guitar, Laptop with all-access recording software on it, Scarlett Focusrite Pre amp, Shure Microphone, and cables.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I'm actually still a student. I just started heavily producing about a year ago and it just stuck with me. As for guitar, I've been playing for about 8 years now.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Matt Corby. He has shown tremendous transitioning within his sound capability and musicality skills. He can make any song, any genre, sound like an angel appearing from heaven.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Learn to love all kinds of music. Getting stuck in a rabbit hole of one genre will kill you as a producer. Although it may not be the art form you like, or a song you don't like, it's still somebody's contribution to the world from their soul and it deserves to at least be listened to by the people they want to show.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, acoustic, R&B, electronic, rock.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Being able to work on a project for weeks, watching it get deleted as my software crashes, and immediately begin to remake it. I guess durability is a guess term. No matter how many times I have to work on something, I'll keep pushing it until its the sound I'm looking for.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A new sense of style that stands uniquely apart from the rest of modern day sounds we are consistently pushed on by. Inspired by all sorts of sounds, jazz, pop, rock, hip-hop, etc., I'll try and utilize my history with songs to divulge into a new sound.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I'll work on a project someone gives me for a couple hours at a time, I'll send them a new file at the end of every session I do on my own for them. It changes every time I work with somebody new. Everyone wants a different sound so I have to adapt to the new flavor of sound I'm working with. Maybe it will be synth heavy, maybe it will be a soft acoustic song. I like to diversify myself.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: M-Audio Preamp, FC 1 MK 2 Condensor Microphone, Jimi Hendrix Signature Stratocaster, Modern Telecaster, Fender Bronco Bass, Logic Pro X with Komplete Kontrol.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Jeff Buckley, Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Mayer, Matt Corby,
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mostly scores for short clips on Instagram, websites, and other short video formats of the like.
