formed in a cumulonimbus cloud during the fall of 2013 when a dance party in the sky got the gunk bumping. 4 Pounds of Lightning explodes onto Earth with electrifying live shows and quirky stage antics. The tunes range from moody traditionals to heavy-hitting yet playful originals. 


Taylor, who juggles between guitar, accordion, banjo, and a variety of wind and percussion instruments, is flanked by his longtime friends Nathaniel Gravette (upright bass) and Danyel Aglipay (violin, glockenspiel). Joining them on drums and a homemade percussion instrument he calls the "Wizzbang" is Stevo Cantrell (The Bucky Walters).


Named by a toddler and driven by fun, 4 Pounds of Lightning offers up music to dance your pants off to!!!
