They Taylor-Smith band is a rock band whose music is reflective of a wide variety of musical influences. In their music you will hear flavors of rock, blues, reggae, and punk. The TSB explores a wide range of human emotion with their songs, from peace to rage and lust to loathing. The history of the band extends back to the spring of 1992, when brothers Matt Smith (electric guitar, vocals)and Jed Smith (drums, percussion)met up with cousins Jeremy Taylor (vocals, acoustic guitar) and Jared Taylor (bass guitar, vocals) during their years at junior high. It wasn't long after that that the TSB began playing gigs at their high school and local venues that they could rent for an evening. Encouraged by the Smith brother's father, Craig, the band learned enough songs to begin playing some local bars. Being a veteran of the local music scene, Craig helped the band overcome the underage issue by helping them book at clubs owned by friends and long time business associates. A few years after it's inception, the band felt that it was time to put tunes to disk. Their first effort resulted in a self titled record that was never pressed or promoted because drummer, Jed Smith, moved to Central America for 2 years. Shortly after Jed left, the band recorded a second album, entitled The Blue Side, with the Smith Brother's father, Craig, behind the kit. Like it's predecessor, The Blue Side was never pressed or promoted because within a few months of it's recording, Matt moved to Mexico and Jeremy moved to the east coast, each for about two years. Upon returning to Cache Valley, UT, all three members Matt, Jed, and Jeremy quickly rejoined with bassist Jared Taylor to pick up where they had left off. They are currently actively promoting their third album 'Superstrength'. Prominent gigs include Rock 99's, battle of the bands, shows in the Salt Lake City area during the 2002 Winter Olympics, and gigs in Park City during the Sundance film festival. The Band regularly plays shows from the Jackson Hole, WY area to as far south as the Moab, UT area.
