Biography


Remington Taylor brings a unique blend of classical and contemporary musical styles.

The lyrical coloratura of Kylee Remington and the dramatic tenor of James Taylor, Jr., come together, creating a fusion of pop music and art song. With the lyrical prose of country music and the edge of rock music, Remington Taylor truly defies and defines genre like no other.

With a BA in Vocal Music Performance, Kylee has performed in several opera workshops, toured Italy, and in recent years led the progressive rock band Tin Scribble.

James' classical training has helped him perform as a solo artist, as well as with (the) fundamentalists for several years.

James Taylor, Jr., brings passion and experience to the stage. Performing since age 4, James has done theater, film, multimedia, and music! He began writing songs at the age of 12 and performing them at 16. His performance career includes county and state fairs, pride festivals, bars and music venues throughout Ohio and Michigan.

James’ classical training provides a unique approach to popular and rock music, and his time with electronic rock and “queerwave” band (the) fundamentalists gave him experience as a front man. He currently performsin the pop/adult contemporary duo Remington Taylor and as a solo singer/songwriter, performing his songs the way he wrote them, sending his voice out to the audience and reaching their souls.

His ability to reach others is lauded by many artists within the community, including Luis Hirschlieb (Project: Union Street), Destini Beard (Midnight Syndicate, Infinitus Mortus), Kris Pride (Kris Pride Music), and former bandmate Chris Taylor.
