Michael Taylor

Indianapolis Indiana-born drummer Michael Taylor began playing drums at the age of 3. Although not a “classically studied” musician he was fortunate enough to have grown up in a musical family of drummers, and was exposed to a wide array of musical styles. “I learned how to play and develop my sense of musicality mostly by listening, watching, and emulating my favorite drummers, as well as a few lessons“. Some of those most influential include his father (Russell Taylor) and grandfather (Jack Ireland).
