Robert Taylor
Guitarist and composer Robert Taylor first picked up a guitar at the age of eight, and was performing at venues across Sydney from the age of thirteen onwards. The six-string virtuoso cut his teeth with indie rock band the Cracksteins and Rockabilly group Dixie Rumble in the mid-90s, during which time he developed his celebrated finger-style playing technique a’ la Chet Atkins and Merle Travis.

Rob’s reputation as a wildman on stage is well deserved: he broke two ribs whilst filming the video for My Baby Rocks Like Betty  Page with the Sonic Aces in 1999, and can most often be found leaping off stages and playing on his back in the middle of an audience without missing a note!
