The voices of King and Taylor ring out, urgent and insistent, telling stories actual and allegorical, of lives literal and fanciful. Rock guitar swells over swaggering R&B rhythms, while piano cascades and organ jabs through buttered electric bass. Blues erupt with daring spontaneity and take flight before falling back to earth.
Sandi King and Joshua Taylor have embarked on several independent tours across the U.S. and into Mexico. After three busy years at home and on the road, they are developing material and support for a debut album. Sandi and Josh create and release their work with the support of direct-to-fan patronage.

The feisty and colorful daughter of a jazz trumpeter, Sandi King grew up in San Diego singing in front of her dad's big bands and soloing in school choirs and musicals. She spent several years as a chef in San Francisco, moonlighting in a rock opera cast and haunting karoke joints before moving back to San Diego in 2012 to pursue music full-time.
Oklahoma City boy Joshua Taylor was given his first beater guitar at the age of 13. Music was Josh's obsessive private hobby well into his twenties, as he meandered through life in and after the Navy, abortively training as a therapist and avoiding the inevitable. After a few tentative years as a part-time singer-songwriter in San Diego, Josh self-released his first album in 2015, and has been afflicted ever since.
King and Taylor met on the San Diego music scene early in 2015, were engaged later that year and started King Taylor Project together in 2016. They married in the fall of 2017. They will die in a horrible stage mishap at a time of their choosing.
