A true lover of music, Cedric Taylor began playing music in middle school where he started out playing trumpet and, by his college years, found himself behind the piano. He was influenced greatly by Bill Evans, Chick Corea and Miles Davis but kept himself versatile by listening to a wide range of music -- from jazz to EDM to metal. Although with only a little over seven years of piano playing under his belt, Cedric has made a genuine name for himself playing with Memphis staples such as the Southern Comfort Jazz Orchestra and acts such as The Bluff ‎ City Soul Collective, Syrrup, and Off the Cuff -- a true testament of dedication to his craft.
