The Guy

Joshua Taylor is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter based in San Diego, California. His debut solo album, About Time, was self-released in late 2015, and he quickly began destroying his Prius on a rash of high-octane indie tours. In 2016, he and his wife Sandi King co-founded King Taylor Project, and immediately took to the road, playing hundreds of gigs in dozens of cities in the U.S. and Mexico.

In 2021, he joined the band Ponderosa Grove, a project launched by singer and Grammy-nominated songwriter Candace Devine. The band has recently opened several shows for Grammy award winners Tedeschi Trucks Band, and they are currently in post-production for their second studio EP.

Joshua's (fully crowdfunded) sophomore studio album, Unscene, is currently fundraising for post-production, and is planned for a Summer/Fall 2022 release.

Joshua is recognizable on guitar for his tasteful pocket, lush textures, and melodic soloing; vocally for his buttery style and adept arrangements; and as a songwriter for his evocative confessional lyricism and mature harmonic craft. He also works as a singer and sideman with many San Diego notables and award-winning artists and producers.

You can support Joshua's continued work as an indie artist by joining King Taylor Project's Patreon.


In addition to his own bands, Joshua performs frequently with other acts.
