Kate Taylor was born in Boston and raised in Chapel Hill, N.C. She now lives on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. She has a life surrounded by music, art, and wit. Her father, Dr. Isaac Taylor, was a professor of medicine and dean of the UNC Medical School at Chapel Hill. He had the soul of a poet. Her mother, Trudy Taylor, was a singer, an artist, and a craftsperson. Her brothers Alex, James, Livingston, and Hugh are musicians, songwriters, performers, and sailors. Kate sang as a youngster and had her first combo at 15. She recorded her first album, “Sister Kate,” in 1971 with Peter Asher. It was released on Atlantic/Cotillion Records. Her second album, “Kate Taylor,” was produced by her brother James for Columbia Records. Her third record, “It’s in There and It’s Got to Come Out,” was recorded at Muscle Shoals Sound Studios in Muscle Shoals, Ala. and produced by Barry Beckett, the keyboardist in the famed Muscle Shoals Sound rhythm section. It was released in 1978 on Columbia Records.
After starting her family, her performing schedule changed as she took time to raise her daughters. Her daughters are now launched, and Kate is once again bringing her original songs and her favorite covers to her beautiful audiences. Her most recent albums include “Beautiful Road” and “Fair Time!”
