Scott Taylor - Bio - Songwriter
by Scott Taylor
I have been making up songs my entire conscious life. I started in early childhood, and started capturing tunes when I learned to play guitar in my early teens. This is just who I am, and what I do. Words and melody are where I play, and arrangements are where I have to work a lot harder. This is why co-writing has been so fun for me. I do get the basic rhythm tracks as I write the lyric, but often co-writers and collaborators have better ideas and find that I am very easy to work with.
Staying open to the muse is the right path, and makes for much more fun, creativity and far better results! Let me know if you are a great musician, and might like to write together, I am always open to meeting new writers who are very good and seeking lyrics, melody, and to combine our talent and vision into fresh new songs.
Attending Full Sail University in Florida gave me a realistic path into the music industry. I was able to get a job at well known, very busy studios including: Westlake Audio, Loinshare Recordings, SONY Music Studios, Music Animals, Post Logic, and Pfeifer Music Partners where I was Studio Manager.
At these well known studios I was working on projects with some of the most successful acts on the planet. Booking sessions, and assisting on them as well.
To name a few: Madonna, Pink Floyd, Tony Bennett, Kenny Loggins, YES, and a long list of others as well. Really fun times for me. I loved working the music industry, and yet I found that it was not providing the income I needed it to when I was married and had a baby on the way. I found that I could increase my income by moving into video and film system sales and marketing at the new media re-seller model. and joined the team at New Media Hollywood. Then I had an office at Avid Technology for a while, and accepted an offer with a leveraged upstart called 3 Point Digital which proved to a great move. Eventually (about four years latter I started TaylorMade Marketing, my own agency as the re-seller business was morphing fast and margins fell off quickly. O.K, back to the music ... Don't get me started...
