“It’s been quite a ride the last 7 months”, laughs Taylor McCall drinking one of his first “legal” beers. “Last December I was sitting in my bedroom in Easley SC writing my songs and playing them for whoever would listen which wasn’t many”.

Yes, it has been a wild ride for 21 year-old singer/songwriter, Taylor McCall. Within the last 7 months, Taylor has recorded a full -length studio album with some of Nashville’s finest musicians, producers, engineers and studios, including the legendary Sound Emporium. He has shot an award-winning music video and played some of the best venues in the industry, including the coveted “Sunday Spotlight” at the world famous Bluebird café. To top it all off, as if that has not been enough, he recently signed a major Publishing and Artist Development deal with BMG Nashville, one of the world’s largest and most influential entities in the music business.

“I knew the first time I heard his voice”, says long time music executive Michelle Robertson of Charlotte Avenue Entertainment, “that this kid was special”, “I just wasn’t sure the industry would recognize it” but I did. Well, now they have and this is only the beginning.

McCall grew up always loving music and listening to the rock bands of his day but his interest was really piqued when he heard alternative folk artists like Mumford & Sons and Jason Isbell. At the age of 15 Taylor got his first guitar and began crafting songs. “even though I was writing songs that I thought were pretty good, I was reluctant to play them for anyone because I was not very confident in my voice”. In fact, Taylor did not sing live until he was 18-years old. We are glad he did because throughout the industry his vocals have been recognized as “a once in a generation type voice”.

Taylor McCall’s quick rise is unique but so are his songs. They paint interesting pictures and intertwine thoughtful lyrics with beautiful melodies. McCall has a knack for telling simple stories in the most interesting ways. Look for more big things to come….

In November 2017, Cris Gonzalez wrote, produced and recorded his first album called 233B with the help of his Dad, Alex Gonzalez. Alex Gonzalez played some of the guitar solos on songs such as Moments, The River Man, A Perfect World, October Town, The Ballad Of Sam Wright, Picture Frames, and What You’re Doing To Me. Cris Gonzalez, wrote all the lyrics, melodies, song arrangements and played all the instruments on this album.

In January 2018, 233B was released and a live band was formed to take the road and promote the album. The band was called “Grasshats" and is comprised by Corey Lawson on drums, Nick Pedersen on Bass and Alex Gonzalez on Lead Guitar, and Cris Gonzalez on lead vocals and rhythm guitar.

In May 2018, Cris & The Grasshats recorded a new single as a band called “Don’t Think About It". Which is available now everywhere.
