We Both Like Girls

In hello, Uncategorized by zadminLeave a Comment

Ann Driscoll was one of my very first friends upon enrolling at Berklee. We were both Nirvana and Beatles fiends, worked at the Groove (the Berklee student newspaper) together, and collaborated on a handful of tunes and projects. Oh, and also went to Egypt together. When she asked me to open for her ‘Pushpins’ EP Release, I was elated. She …

G N’ F’ R

I woke up today with my ears ringing. I usually protect them with fancy monitors, foam plugs, or old fashioned spitballs from bunched-up cocktail napkins. But last night, there would be no filter. Not when you’re in the pit at a Guns N’ Roses concert.  My original plan last night was to see an Improv show at the Upright Citizen’s …

Warped Tour

In hello by zadminLeave a Comment

We just got off of a week run of shows for Warped Tour. That’s right: your favorite vape-tastic emo/screamo rawk-fest where even water comes in a can of Monster energy! It was actually a blast. We met tons of young bands who had so much passion and ambition, and their squadrons of teenage geeks and punks and goth kids who …

Zac Taylor Show May 27th @ Rockwood

Like many hired musicians who also write their own songs, sometimes I feel like a deadbeat dad. However, after months of touring with songs I’m a proud stepfather to, I’m excited to finally show some love to my own children again. Hey there, “Spend the Night with Hannah”! Why hello, “The Getaway”! It’s me! Daddy! You have all grown so much I can …

Make Friends/Don’t Be a D*ck

In Uncategorized by zadminLeave a Comment

I was recently invited to be a panelist at a Pro Music Seminar called ‘Careerealism’ at my alma mater, Berklee College of Music, but sadly I had to decline because I’ll be on the road with American Authors throughout the spring. But during that moment when I explored the possibility of popping up to Boston for the event, the wheels …

Champagne in Chicago, Bruins in Boston

In hello by zadminLeave a Comment

When you close out one year playing Times Square on New Year’s Eve, you might think there’s nowhere to go but down for any other year end celebration. You’re probably right, but American Authors came pretty damn close. Chi-Town Rising is the Windy City’s version of the Times Square ball drop, and we performed just before the band Chicago at the …

The new ZacTaylor.tv!

In hello by zadminLeave a Comment

Welcome to the new and improved ZTV! You’ll notice a slick interface, fresh artwork, and the absence of the MySpace icon (I forgot my password years ago). When I made my first website back in college, I was a fresh-faced, debt-free independent singer-songwriter in Boston, full of piss and vinegar, and ready to take the world by storm! After a …

New American Authors Videos

In hello by zadminLeave a Comment

Here are some more videos:     I sort of have an unbelievably perfect job right now: I get to play music with an awesome band, and film our wacky lifestyle to broadcast on the interwebs. You may have noticed if we are either Facebook friends or related. I have been working with Island Records to release a tour diary …

Alaskan Authors

We played a show with our homeboys KONGOS in Alaska in July, and also got up close and personal with some glaciers, elk, moose, and reindeer. My dad did not approve of Dave ‘flipping the bird’ in this one.
