Taylor may be new to the Americana scene, but she is not new to the music scene as a whole. This Southern California native started writing songs and entering them in the annual PTA Reflections contest when she was 8 years old, entering every year for 10 years, before winning State for her song "Changes" her last year of High School. She has been in many bands over the years, starting with her family band called “Howe Party of 6” when she was 12 years old. She later formed a band with her brother Tanner Howe (called How2, and Taylor and Tanner Howe), performing locally in Orange County and recording 2 Pop CDs together. While attending college in Provo Utah, she formed a folk band called “The Heartstrings” where they performed in notable venues like Velour, Muse Cafe, and Capitol Hill.
She later formed the virtual cinematic pop band TREN with 3 other students from BYU’s commercial music program (Richard Williams, Eliza Smith, and Nate Young), after going viral with their song “Live or Survive” aiming for the end credits of the last Hunger Games film. With and outside of TREN, Taylor found a passion for writing to prompts and jumped into the world of custom music creation, writing songs in a variety of genres for video games, end-credits, theme songs and more.
After focusing mostly on fulfilling the song dreams of her clients for nearly a decade, she is now excited to be leaning into her own voice and experience through the release of her EP “Hole in the World,” inspired by the likes of Brandi Carlyle and Carole King. Working with friend and producer Nate Young of the indie band Spirit City (known for placements in Marvel's Spiderman, the Harry Potter game, and Virgin River), to showcase 4 introspective original songs.
