Welcome to Taylor On A Trip! In this crazy world of clickbait headlines and Angry Birds, I’m honored and humbled that you are taking some time to check out my little corner of the internet.
For those of you new to my world, the name’s Taylor, nice to meet you. I’m an avid traveller and, when I’m not travelling the world, I’m working in the Canadian Music Industry. No, I don’t play an instrument, I just love working with musicians and other creative people to blast tunes out into the world as far and wide as they’ll go.
Originally from the Canadian Prairies, I grew up in a very small town where not a whole lot happened. It was cute, quiet, and a great place to grow up. However, it was not too long after high school that I decided to leave it all behind and live a life of adventure.
In 2010, I moved to Toronto to work in the music industry and spent the subsequent seven years doing just that. I worked hard, played hard, and travelled hard whenever I could. However, in 2017 my wanderlust hit a peak and I decided to leave it all behind. I quit my job and decided to traipse around Europe for a few months.
Since then, I’ve found a balance between work and travel, and have cracked the great nut that is remote working. Some months I’ll be in one place, working at a regular job, and others I’ll be on the road, typing from my laptop in a new (to me) location.
This blog is a bit different from regular blogs in a couple ways. Firstly, I love writing musical content. This is the place to come if you need a sweet, yet specific, playlist, or if you want to know a little more about popular music history. And secondly, I like to keep it dreamy. Along with some travel guides, you’ll find a lot of essays and musings here. I love diving deep into various subjects and starting conversations.

Taylor On A Trip has been alive since 2015, and I started it for two reasons:
a) I love writing and crafting stories from personal experiences. When I originally put the blog together, I was primarily looking for an outlet, and for a way to keep my family up-to-date on the goings on of my life. Since then, this blog has grown and has become a lot more about community and finding commonalities in the human experience.
b) To indulge my passion for musical points of interest. Before I started the blog, I found myself going on pilgrimages to various points of musical interest around the globe and paying homage to my favorite musicians. It’s something that I loved to do then, and I love to do now. I’ve further indulged this interest by going to school for music business, working at various music venues, climbing the ladder at a major record label, and learning the ropes at a couple radio stations.
I love to travel, and I love to go to so many concerts that my ears perpetually bleed.
So let’s raise a glass to run-down luggage wheels, the beats of different cultures, and a world well-travelled!
