Taylor Haskins is fast becoming one of the most diverse talents in music, diving head-first into everything from playing world-class jazz ensembles, new music ensembles and bare-bones experimental rock bands to composing & producing original music for film, television, art installations, and for his own group, the Taylor Haskins Ensemble. In 2002 Taylor released his debut recording entitled "Wake Up Call" on the Barcelona-based Fresh Sound/New Talent label. called it an "impressive debut, wherein traditional forms are discarded and the beauty of new forms revealed." Recently Taylor released his second CD on Fresh Sound, entitled "Metaviewâ.

Taylor grew up in the quiet woods of New Hampshire, where he began his musical life around the age of 4 by plunking out television and movie themes by ear on the family piano. Formal piano lessons began at 5, and at the age of 10 Taylor chose to play the trumpet in school band. He proved to be a natural at the instrument and had little private instruction until after high school, when he earned full talent-based scholarships to both undergraduate and graduate school. He studied classical trumpet with Dr. Robert Stibler at the University of New Hampshire (BA, 1994), and in 1994 Taylor relocated to New York City to study with trumpet legend Lew Soloff at the Manhattan School of Music (MM, 1996). In 1997 he was a semi-finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Trumpet Competition.

Currently Taylor plays lead trumpet with the Grammy⢠award-winning Dave Holland Big Band and has also been a long-time member of Guillermo Klein's 'Los Guachos' as well as the virtual rock band 'Ron Revog'. In addition, he has also performed and recorded with Luciana Souza, Maynard Ferguson's 'Big Bop Nouveau", the Maria Schneider Orchestra, Clark Terry, the Village Vanguard Orchestra, Joey Sellars Jazz Aggregation, Anthony Coleman, Rosemary Clooney, Peter Herborn's 'Large', Ed Palermo's 'Frank Zappa Big Band', the Artie Shaw Orchestra, Andrew Rathbun, the Pablo Ablanedo Octet and many others. In December 2005 the Style Network began airing a talk show featuring fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi; Taylor performs on the show as trumpeter in the house band, the Ben Waltzer Quartet.

In addition to playing trumpet and composing music for his own projects, Taylor has proven himself a versatile composer for various media, utilizing technology in combination with traditional composing methods. He has composed and produced music for over 50 national TV commercials for clients such as Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi, Target, AT&T, Buick, MasterCard, Bounty, LL Bean, Canon and others. He has created music & sound design for network ID's on the USA Networks as well as the WE Network. Taylor has also contributed original music to such films as "Arlington Roadâ (1999), "Waking the Deadâ (2000), "No Maps For These Territoriesâ (2000), "The Mothman Prophecies" (2001), "The Rules of Attraction" (2003), and most recently "Sorry, Haters" (2006). Taylor has scored numerous independent short films, including the award-winning comedy "Spot", for which he also wrote the screenplay. In addition to this myriad of musical activities, Taylor has also served as Creative Supervisor for music production house 'Face the Music' in Los Angeles, and for several years developed & tested software (as well as composed music) for 'tomandandy' in New York.
