How about working with Grammy nominated and multi-platinum selling engineer and producer David Ivory!” exclaimed Kostas Lymperopoulos.  “I cannot be more excited to be her photographer and be part of the production team for the filming and recording of her live show at The Stone Pony on October 13th.

The Taylor Tote Band includes Anthony Flora (Drums), Nick Ryan (Guitar/Background Vocals), Tom Briant (Guitar/Background Vocals), Aaron Manzo (Bass), and Taylor Tote (Lead Vocals). Everyone involved from the band to the venue is excited about the upcoming show.

"I knew Taylor was destined for big things from the first time I saw her in one of Jody Joseph student shows at The Stone Pony,” recalled Kyle Brendle. “And now she is coming full on with her live recording event!  Taylor is one of the brightest young talents I have ever come across; her smooth sultry vocals can soar right to the heavens.  Mesmerizing on stage, she is truly gifted and a force you’re going to be hearing plenty of in the future!”

David Ivory agrees. “Not only is she a gifted singer she is a strong talented songwriter.  Up is the only way this artist can go!” he added.

Ivory will also be recording the band on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at Puck, an intimate live-music venue in Doylestown, PA.  Additional shows - including a performance at the Premier Mesa Music Festival in Arizona - will be announced shortly.

"Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for more information to come, you won't want to miss it!” added Taylor Tote.
