American singer and noted family, the younger brother of folk-pop superstar James Taylor. While his charm and exuberance made him a popular concert performer, he achieved only modest success as a recording artist and his best-selling single, "I Will Be in Love With You," only made it to 30th on the charts,

Taylor was born in a suburb of Boston, but in 1951, his family moved to North Carolina, so he grew up in Chapel Hill. The third of five children born to Dr. Isaac and Gertrude Taylor, he had three brothers, Alex, James and Hugh, and one sister, Kate. All of his siblings became musicians. As a child, Taylor suffered from emotional problems and while attending high school, he became severely depressed and sought treatment at McLean Psychiatric Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts, the same place his brother James was treated during 1965. Never a great student, he decided to get work in the music business, so after completing his treatment, much of which involved guitar playing and singing, Taylor stayed in Boston and performed in local coffeehouses.

He signed with Capricorn Records shortly thereafter and quickly released three albums, ending with "Over The Rainbow," in 1973. His next album was not released until five years later and he concluded the decade of the ’70s with the release of a greatest hits sampling of his songs. Throughout the ’80s and ’90s, he released several albums, including "Unsolicited Material," 1994. Taylor was the host of a syndicated television show, "This Week’s Music," during 1984, and that same year, he taught performance arts at Berklee College of Music. The tall, thin musician likes basketball and table hockey, but his love is for people, saying he likes "to make them smile, to listen to them, and hopefully, to be a good friend." He pilots his own Cessna and has a dog, Ajax.
