Joshua J. Taylor graduated from the University of Central Arkansas with two bachelors degrees (Music and Comparative Religious Studies) and a minor in Gender Studies. He was actively involved with both the UCA Concert Choir and Chamber Singers, both under the direction of the world renown John Erwin. Under John Erwin's direction, Joshua traveled Europe and North America extensively performing the great master works and it was under Mr. Erwin's direction that he was inspired to write music himself. His true passion is choral literature. Rich texture and lush harmonies characterize Mr. Taylor's music. You can reach Mr. Taylor personally at firstname.lastname@example.org. He does accept commissions.
