Taylor Baker, lead singer of the electro pop band, SWELLS, is a native Austinite who happens to be incredibly talented, creative, and gorgeous in an unfair way. As SWELLS, Taylor and her other half, Drew Walker, recently toured the US with Taylor on vocals and Drew playing guitar, synth and trumpet. They’ve played ACL Fest, SXSW and Float Fest, and they’ll be releasing a new single and music video in March for their song “Lights Out.” Along with music, Taylor has a full time job, a lifestyle blog (www.taylortaylor.me), and an active presence on social media. Tune in to Episode 3 of This is Austin to find out what Taylor was like in high school, why she wound up in the hospital on her recent tour, and whether she thinks Austin still deserves the title of “Live Music Capital of the World.” FAVORITES Austin Restaurants: The Funkadelic, Uchi, El Alma, Maudie’s, Fonda san Miguel, Numero 28 Poetry: Rumi, Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur* Podcasts: The Goop Podcast, My Favorite Murder Bands/Musicians: Honne, Washed Out, Lennon Stella Austin Bands/Musicians: Abhi the Nomad, Shy Beast, Mobley, Missio SOCIAL MEDIA Guest, Taylor Baker Instagram: @taylortaylor & @swellstheband Twitter: @swellstheband Web: www.swellstheband.com Blog: www.taylortaylor.me Spotify: https://spoti.fi/2B6lIM1 Host, Adrienne Huebner Instagram: @thisisaustinpodcast Twitter: @adrienne Facebook: @thisisaustinpodcast Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Web: www.thisisaustinpodcast.com Editor, Adrian De La Garza Facebook: @adlgmarketing Twitter: @adlgmarketing Web: https://adlgmarketing.com/ *Amazon Affiliate Links.
