Christian's voice is fueled with passion and soul. With just an acoustic guitar and his voice, Christian Taylor is great for any private party, business event, wedding, restaurant or bar. Catch him as part of his duo, trio, or full band, and guests are sure to be drawn in immediately, and be thoroughly entertained with every song. Christian currently performs at some of San Diego's best live music spots, including Whiskey Girl, Old City Hall (used to be Florent), Herringbone, Searsucker, Loews Coronado Bay Resort, and many others. Playing some of his favorite covers from past decades to present, every song sounds as if though it were his own, putting as much passion and heart into singing them as if he had written them himself. Christian has performed at major charity fundraisers, local festivals, as well as SXSW in Austin, TX. Bio below. San Diego, CA native musician, and singer songwriter, Christian Taylor grew up surrounded by, and listening to all styles of music. Grandson of "Wipeout" drum legend, Mel Taylor, of surf rock band The Ventures, as well as grandson to the First Lady of Rock N Roll, Mary Kaye, who was the pioneer of the Las Vegas lounge act, you could say music is in his blood. Christian's father Jay Kaye was an accomplished musician, singer, songwriter, and blues guitarist in his own right, finding his audience accross Europe, where Christian found himself as a young child watching a listening to him play. ​ Christian didn't find his voice or musical style until later in life, after playing in all different styles of bands and projects as a young man. Christian experimented with folk, americana, and blues rock for a while, before he found a way to blend it all together with his love for classic soul music. His lyrics are stories filled with love, heartache, and hope. With simple guitar playing, he relies more on his soulful raspy voice, that he pushes as far as he can. The music is a throw back to 50’s 60’s soul and rock n roll, as well as blues and folk, packed with organs, saxophones, and a female back up singer that compliments Christian's vocals. Their live shows are full of energy, good vibes, and charisma, that continually keep the audiences dancing and entertained.

Music is life and I'm the life of the party. I grew up listening to the 1990s-2000s Era of music and around friends who are DJ's. They inspired me to be the DJ that I am today. I am a genre specialist, open-format and performs in various venues. Some of my specialties include; Hip-Hop, R&B, Reggae, Classics, 70's, 80's, Pop and Top 40's. I have always been open minded to music for a wide variety of audiences and events. My ability to read the crowd, naturally raises the energy level of the room. Hard to put into words, but music drives me and I enjoy connecting with people through the art of DJing. Just a little bit about my DJ background. I used to be one of the resident DJ's at the Hard Rock Café in Downtown SD. I was also the resident DJ at Swami's Café and played a couple times for Altitude and STK Rooftop. I've also done over 50 Weddings and served as an MC and made certain the bride and groom are relaxed and guided seamlessly throughout the event.
