Taylor & Friends

 

Ever since I started playing saxophone in 5th grade, I knew I wanted to be a rockstar. And while I'm only considered a rockstar by my nieces and nephews, I am humbled and grateful to help others experience the incredible love of God through music - the universal language God designed to bring us closer together. When I'm not strumming the ole' guitar or drinking coffee, you can find me on the pickleball court. I play music with my friends in a group called Family Three. I love camping, music, and Jesus. Visit Website
