Gaylan Taylor - The Limeliters
Gaylan Taylor joined The Limeliters in 2006 when Alex Hassilev decided to finally retire. He performed with The Limeliters until August 2018, when he was replaced by Steve Brooks.
His first paid gig as a folk singer came in 1964 when he was 14, but his actual professional career began in 1967 after Bill Zorn invited Gaylan to be a part of Bill’s large folk group, The Win’ Jammers. Bill and Gaylan hooked up again in ’70 ’71 as members of The New Christy Minstrels. 2007 marked Gaylan’s 40th year in the music business.
In addition to guitar and vocals, Gaylan plays bass and harmonica and has written well over 200 songs, two of which are on the Limeliter’s CD Right From the Start. A self-proclaimed ‘recording studio junkie’, Gaylan is equally comfortable as a vocalist, vocal arranger, instrumentalist, engineer or producer.
In 2005, Gaylan toured with Glenn Yarbrough as the leader of Glenn’s Havenstock River Band. When he was invited to join The Limeliters in 2006, Gaylan said, “It’s like coming home… I’ve been in a lot of groups with a lot of different styles and configurations and worked with some wonderfully talented performers… this Limeliters group with Andy and Don and me is nothing short of magical.”
