Taylor Mead

Taylor (8) croppedHello! My name is Taylor Mead,  I am a 21 year old drummer out of the midwest. I have recently joined a band named Haunting Skies. Previous to Haunting Skies, I was in a metalcore band named Shoot The Hero, and before that, I spent my time looking for musicians who were as dedicated as I am. Taylor (6)

I have been playing drums for the better part of my entire life, going on closer to 18 years. Drums were a natural occurrence, as my dad played in various bands as I was growing up. I love drums and percussion, and have no better interest ( other than cooking) to learn more and more about my craft. Playing drums is what I was put on this Earth to do, and I will do everything in my power to get into the eyes of others to show them my passion for music and playing the drums. I played my first show opening up for my dad’s band when I was only 12 or 13, for crowds of 200+ people. With Shoot The Hero, we opened for many bigger acts such as: Veil Of Maya, Darkest Hour, and Psychostick. I have a Youtube channel, which is quickly approaching 26,000 video views. There you will find drum covers, the occasional gear review, and drum cams of live shows. I upload when I can with the resources I have.
