A native of Gainesville, Florida, Taylor Roberts is one of the great rising stars in today’s jazz world. Just completing a brand new solo guitar album entitled “Short Story”, Taylor’s ability as a soloist or in a group is unmatched. His influences are vast and his playing echoes the greats such as Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, BB King and more. Taylor is young, but his talent has already allowed him to share the stage with such jazz giants as Sean Jones, Bucky Pizzarelli, Gary Foster, Toscha Comeaux, Jimmy Bruno, and Ali Jackson. Performances at the Jacksonville Jazz Festival, The Gainesville Jazz Festival, the Ritz Theater, the O’Connell Center and many other venues in the Southeastern US have all gained him great recognition.
Taylor studied Jazz Guitar at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville and now stays busy touring and teaching privately.
