I am a session drummer and touring artist I've worked with The Chris Buck Band (Top 20 Artist & CCMA Nominee) Wes Mack (Top 10 Artist & CCMA Nominee) Swollen Members (Juno Winners) Ryan Laird (Top 20 Artist & CCMA Nominee) I endorse Mapex Drums, Amedia Cymbals, Remo Drum Heads, Cympads, Sweet spot drum dampers & Big Fat Snare Drum.

As a studio musician, I have worked with some of the top producers in the business including Ron Thaler (Alicia Keys, Ashley Simpson, Lorde, Lana Del Rey), and Brian Howes (Nickelback, Hinder, Daughtry). With just under a decade's worth of studio experience, I have performed sessions in pretty much every style, this has given me the proper tools to know how to deliver a clean take while still retaining the punch and feel that will bring a song to life.

Last year I played drums on The Chris Buck Bands major release "That's When You Know" which led the band to their first top 20 single on the Canadian Country Music Charts and their first Canadian Country Music Award Nomination. I love seeing my artists succeed, so I like to offer unlimited revisions to guarantee ultimate satisfaction. Let's work together and make your song the next big thing!

  1. Review by Nadège O.

    Taylor is a great drummer and a very nice person. He was easy to communicate with even though we were in opposite time zones and he was happy to make changes whenever needed. I definitely recommend him!

  2. Review by Georgia D.

    Taylor is a great player, and great guy. Ive had the pleasure of working with him live and in the studio. You definitely won't be disappointed hiring him for your next recording.

  3. Review by Lonny Eagleton

    Taylor is an excellent drummer and a great guy. I've had the pleasure of working with him on the road and was very impressed with his groove, pocket, and limitless creativity. Definitely hire him for your next project!

  4. Review by Paul Kinman

    Taylor is about as legit as they come. I have worked with him many, many times and he's really easy to work with, has great gear, is very well versed in many styles, and his groove/pocket is well beyond his years. I highly recommend hiring him for whatever job you may have!
