Unlike the majority of musicians in Nashville, singer songwriter Jesse Wayne Taylor is a born and bred middle Tennessee native. Growing up with a love for music, he experimented with writing lyrics as young as 7 years old. While singing in church throughout middle and high school, Jesse did not pick up the guitar until he was nearly 19. In his early years of college at Lipscomb University, he quickly realized that music would be a very big part of his life. While still in school he played around town any chance he could get. Following his college graduation, he decided to give the full time musician dream a chance. While “cutting his teeth,” he played in the bars to make a living for nearly two years in and out of state. Jesse began to have some vocal issues, which lead him to an ENT specialist along with some vocal therapy and year off from gigging full time. In the year off, he has put much time and effort into sharpening his skills and letting his voice heal. New and old songs are to be recorded this year. Jesse is officially gigging full time again and would love to see you along the way.
