Taylor's musical journey began in Ft. Worth, Texas, where as a kid his mom would take him to places like the historic White Elephant Saloon and Billy Bob's, where he was the only child allowed in the door because his uncle Brent Smith was in the house band.
Now hailing from Fayetteville, Arkansas, nestled amid the serene foothills of the Ozark Mountains, Taylor has spent the past decade touring extensively alongside his childhood friend Garrett August, co-founding the rock band Vintage Pistol. Their coast-to-coast journeys forged Taylor's musical prowess and shaped his understanding of the craft.
From these diverse influences, Taylor Smith emerges—a raw, introspective singer-songwriter, ready to unveil a deeply personal narrative. Inspired by a myriad of artists including Jason Isbell, Bj Barham, Evan Felker, and Cody Canada, his music has transformed into a heartfelt storytelling style that delivers woeful candor.
"I’ve grown to the point of not being worried about being honest, which is refreshing," Taylor reveals. This newfound freedom weaves into his music, capturing the hues of sobriety, the echoes of heartache, and the weight of loss with unfiltered sincerity.
This pivotal transition—from the vibrant energy of Vintage Pistol to the poignant vulnerability of a solo artist—marks a significant chapter in Taylor's musical expedition. His music now serves as a sanctuary, inviting listeners to join in an intimate exploration of shared emotions and the human spirit.
Brunch with Santa in The Alley
Diversity is very important when it comes to Santa Claus, because there are a lot of families that long for somebody who looks like them to be sitting in the Santa chair. A lot of kids don't get the opportunity to see Santa because the families aren't comfortable with somebody who is not of color taking credit for the gifts their kids get during the Christmas season. We want to make sure that their children understand that Black people are prosperous. Santa Chris, featured in the HBO Max documentary Santa Camp, will be in The Alley during Sunday brunch for photos and Christmas cheer!
