Eight months later, he completed his first CD and prepared for the move to Santa Barbara to attend UCSB. Enchanted by the freedom and beauty of Santa Barbara, he continued writing songs, pushing himself to improve as a songwriter. After two years of writing, recording, and performing, he left for Bologna, Italy in July 2004 for a year of study abroad. While studying, traveling, and embellishing in the richness of Italian culture, Taylor performed throughout Bologna as a solo musician.
He returned to UCSB in September, 2005 after 14 months of exploration and inspiration in Europe. He brought home a newfound respect and appreciation for the beauty and opportunity of California, and continued writing songs incessantly. He is humbled by the complexity and elusiveness of songwriting, but is addicted by a good song's ability to bring so many people together. While finishing his degree in Environmental Studies at UCSB, Taylor is presently writing new material with plans for a new record in the coming months.
