Entering their 11th year in Southern Gospel, The Taylors are an award winning brother sister trio from the heart of North Carolina. With their smooth family blended harmony, Jonathan, Suzanne, and Chris have been delighting listeners with their spirits and enthusiasm through music. They are dedicated to stirring up the faith of the Christian community, and reaching others with the good news of Jesus Christ is their #1 priority. The Taylors are currently performing around 180 dates a year across the United States, Canada, Mexico, Sweden, Norway, Ireland, Scotland, and the UK. Since their formation in 2006, God has allowed them to see over 7,500 decisions for Christ.
The Taylors recently transitioned from a quartet to a trio with the departure of their baby sister and soprano, Leslie in April of 2016. Leslie, a founding member of the group, felt a calling to minister alongside her husband, Aaron, in Myrtle Beach, SC. They currently serve at Socastee Baptist Church as Music Director and Youth Pastor. Leslie has a successful photography business and she is enjoying her two beautiful children, Isaiah and Guiliana.
The Taylor siblings grew up as members of Fellowship Baptist Church, a small country church, where their father has been ministering as a Southern Baptist minister for nearly 30 years. With their mother’s guidance as their music director, it was around the church piano that The Taylors created and honed their beautiful family harmony. The sound of the group has only grown tighter and better as the years go by.
Growing up in a Christian home has reinforced their faith and values, and has created in each of them a strong desire to proclaim their salvation through the ministry of music. God is at the very center of The Taylors’ ministry and also at the center of their hearts. They consider themselves extremely blessed to be able to sing for The Lord.
In 2008, The Taylors won First Place in the Talent Showcase of The National Quartet Convention in Louisville, Kentucky. They are also the 2008 NC State Singing Convention Grand Champions. Recently, they were nominated Top 10 Horizon Group of the Year for 2010, Top 5 Horizon Group of the Year for 2011 and 2012, and Favorite New Mixed Group of the Year for 2013 by Singing News Fans!
