Taylor Mathews

There's a story behind everyone. Each one different than the other, each one unique. Taylor Mathews was born on October 10, 1991 in the city of Alexandria, Louisiana. He's a dreamer just like anyone else in the world but what he lacked for 12 years was a dream, a real tangible dream. It wasn't until one mid-summers day in the month of September that his life would change, forever.

He inherently found his passion for music by way of a Fender Stratocaster that was handed down to him from his dad. For the next 3 years he played that prized instrument for nearly 8 hours a day and at times spent days without eating. He would even find some way to cram himself in the backseat of his dads car and play his guitar or he'd pop in a soulful Marc Broussard cd and sing to it when he played club soccer in Lafayette, Louisiana.

His guitar went with him everywhere he went and through the years of pestering his friends with yet another tune and playing for crowds of about 30 people in local coffee-shops he landed himself on the nationally syndicated show America's Got Talent making it to the Top 10 out of 100,000 acts in the nation playing to more than 10 million people per performance on the show and he continues to date touring the country playing in such venues as The Colosseum in Las Vegas, Nevada with respective fans from as far as Ireland and Japan.

From being a small city boy of Alexandria to standing strong under the bright lights of National Acclamation in Hollywood, California he represents the very essence to the phrase "if you can dream it, you can do it.".
