Kyle Taylor describes himself as a non-conformist Australian Folk musician with a wide range of music in his portfolio. He is always ready to talk to someone about music because he loves music ever so much.
Encouraged by his grandparents and mother to become a musician, Kyle’s mission has been to inspire the people that have taken him around the world finding his audience – with multiple tours to the UK and New Zealand. He has shared the stage with contemporary greats such as Josh Pyke and Gang Of Youths, as well as legends like Mick Thomas and Mondo Rock.
In 2018 Kyle was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and is receiving support from EACH’s Early Intervention Psychosocial Support Response Team. He’s also been able to access EACH’s health, disability and counselling services which have supported him to improve his mental health.
The support has assisted Kyle to focus on being creative, which has allowed him to express himself through poetry, story and song. He now feels he has more confidence and says he will be shining hope out to others through the art he creates and shares.
What advice does Kyle have for anyone struggling with their mental health?
“Focus on oneself through exercise, a healthy diet and have belief in the support out there, and you will find the light within to walk through the darkness.”
Kyle travels the world with the wind of a troubadour in his sails. Drawing inspiration from the places he visits and the people he meets, Taylor deep-dives into everything from today’s news, local and international issues, to good old fashioned love songs.
His music features something for everyone.
