About Shane Michael Taylor
Michael Taylor has overcome more obstacles and adversity in his three
decades than most songwriters could imagine facing in a lifetime. Shane
navigates the world in a wheelchair. In addition, he struggles to
communicate verbally as a result of being born with a severe form of
Cerebral Palsy, a developmental disorder affecting movement, speech and
posture. Making excuses, however, was never an option for this
Waterbury, CT native, who taught himself to type with his nose at the
age of five. Fueled by his lifelong love of country music and an
unrelenting desire to shatter stereotypes, Shane earned a college degree
in Music Business and began making frequent visits to Nashville to
co-write with prominent Music City songwriters like Lorna Flowers and
Mason Douglas. Now, after years of honing his craft, Taylor is gearing
up to release a debut album of his songs entitled I Will Stand, set to release fall of 2015.
