Jeff Taylor was born and raised in New Jersey, residing in the NYC area since 2007.

In 2012, Taylor released the album, "Frustration In Time Travel" under his previous band moniker, Dumpster Hunter. The album was produced and mixed by Steve Wall with additional production by John Siket. The album also featured the musical talents of Mark Guiliana, Steve Wall, Cole Whittle, and Elizabeth Ziman.

2014 saw the first 'Jeff Taylor' release, "Organelle", a 4-track EP produced by and featuring Thomas Bartlett (Glenn Hansard, Martha Wainwright, The National, Sufjan Stevens) and was released on a limited edition 10" 45rpm vinyl

The past few years have found Jeff Taylor on tour as support for Trixie Whitley and Kishi Bashi, as well as touring and recording with Sara Bareilles. In a departure from strictly musical performance, Taylor also made his stage debut as Larry the Dwarf in the Los Angeles Philharmonic's production of Frank Zappa’s "200 Motels." In "Motels" Taylor sang with the LA Phil for their 10th Anniversary Celebration of their home venue in Downtown LA, The Walt Disney Concert Hall. In 2015, Taylor composed music for NPR/WNYC podcast, Radiolab.

Jeff Taylor is also part of Mark Guiliana's Beat Music project, Marike van Dijk's Stereogrpahy Project and the Creative Ensemble Collective, and recently sang "A Small Plot of Land" with The Donny McCaslin Group (David Bowie's Blackstar band) on their recent album, "Beyond Now". Jeff is currently working on his upcoming first solo album.

On the heels of nearly 50,000 miles of touring over the past 18 months, the buzz and anticipation surrounding New York-based artist Janita (pronounced YA-nee-tuh) is as unsurprising as it is palpable. Standing-room-only concerts and sold-out headlining dates in both the United States and Europe have cemented her reputation as an electrifying artist and performer whose breakthrough moment has arrived.

Now, in addition to her ongoing tour schedule, she’s launched her own artist-in-residence concert series in New York, at famed Lower East Side music haunt Arlene’s Grocery. In this new series, Janita will be debuting new songs as well as new collaborations with special guests––a veritable who’s who of the New York music scene––while also performing fan favorites from her albums Seasons of Life, Haunted, and Didn’t You, My Dear?

Critical acclaim fused with commercial success may be rare in the music world, but this happy combination remains Janita’s norm: “Janita mesmerizes…her distinctive vocals are her stand-out asset, ranging between an edgier Feist and a softer Florence Welch,” declares Paste Magazine. Baeble Music adds, “Combining the vocal intensity of Bat for Lashes’ Natasha Khan with the turbulent rock edge of St. Vincent, Janita continues to mark herself as an artist capable of producing music of great beauty and unsettling power.”

Janita continues to promote the Deluxe Edition release of her recent breakthrough album, Didn’t You, My Dear?, having just returned from a second major tour of the United Kingdom. She’s now set for a string of East Coast dates in the U.S. in the fall of 2017, co-headlining with acclaimed singer-songwriter Jeff Taylor.
