King Taylor Project
“King Taylor Project is soul, funk, blues, and jazz,” says singer-percussionist Sandi King. “We improvise and have a blast playing off of each other and like to incorporate everyone’s musical style into the band and feature every member in our shows.” King spent time in northern California as a lead chef at San Francisco’s Greens Restaurant before settling in San Diego, while band-and-life partner Joshua Taylor (a Naval Academy grad who served on active duty for five years) grew up in Oklahoma City and first picked up the guitar at the age of 13. Taylor released his debut album About Time in 2015 and toured nationally with King, opening for her former project 22 Kings. King appeared on Taylor’s album, and together they founded King Taylor Project the following year, getting married in October 2017. They spent last summer on a national tour that took them through 23 states, with over 40 gigs in 12 weeks.
