Born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Kat Taylor found her love of music early in life. Riding with her father on work trips, she belted out 90s country and cultivated a deep appreciation for the vocal talents of Martina McBride, Faith Hill, and Reba McEntire. At 18, she auditioned for the hit TV program Nashville Star and made it past the first round. During the next round she would have to perform an original tune, which she did not have, so she never went back for the next round of the competition. Kat continued singing in church and for years, she didn’t revisit the idea of song writing until seeing a flyer for Tips for Tuscaloosa, a charity event held monthly and hosted by singer-songwriter Hope Cassidy. Hope, as well as other songwriters, were all floored with Kat’s pristine vocal tone and range. She began to network with local and regional musicians, and before long, had written and co-written several songs. Combining the lyrical influence of Norah Jones and the vocal range and tone of Aretha Franklin, Kat quickly developed a powerful song all her own. Her regular appearances at Tips for Tuscaloosa for her to perform in other local and regional venues and for session work in Tuscaloosa and Nashville. Rarely do the elements of natural beauty, personality, and drive come together in one performer, and it is refreshing to witness in the current music industry. Kat has assembled a band of talented and experienced musicians and is currently booking duo, trio, and full band performances for 2017. Her sets incorporate classic rock favorites, current top 40, soul ballads, and country hits; along with popular original tunes.
The music hit "Shame On You" by Kat Taylor has been added to Sort Hits during 2017 as a new Country single release.
