“A sound that’s fresh and new, developing a fan base that’s entirely different and forging a presence that fits who they are and where they want to go.”
“With the blood of rock royalty running through him, and an intrinsic need to create rocking music that any self-respecting music junkie could love, you could say that Robin Taylor Zander has got it going on.”
Growing up in a family helmed by a musical icon, music was ingrained early on. Robin Taylor Zander picked up his first guitar at around 4 years old, and has barely set it down.
His knowledge of musical history runs deep, allowing for a broad range of influences. Robin sites his most diverse influences as The Beatles, My Morning Jacket, The Rolling Stones, Ariel Pink, R.Stevie Moore, The Who, David Bowie, Elliot Smith, Jimi Hendrix, T.Rex, and of course Cheap Trick.
