Biography

Kate was born in Boston and grew up with her four brothers in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, where her father was Dean of the medical school at the University of North Carolina. Her mother, Trudy, was a New England native and had received training as a lyric soprano in Boston.

As a member of one of the most famous musical families in America, Taylor and her four brothers, Alex, Livingston, Hugh and James, have all enjoyed success as performing and recording artists, starting in the late 1960s. Kate, Livingston and James are still recording and have active touring careers; Hugh owns the Outermost Inn on Martha's Vineyard; Alex is deceased. James Taylor's career has been particularly successful.

Taylor formed her first band at age 15 and had her first record deal with Atlantic Records four years later. Produced by her manager at the time, Peter Asher, she released her debut album Sister Kate in 1971. Her second album, the 1978 self-titled Kate Taylor,[1] was produced by her brother James and Lew Hahn on Columbia Records. It was well received, and produced another charting hit, "It's in His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)", done as a duet with James. It peaked at 49 on the Billboard charts.

The following year Taylor released It's in There, produced by Barry Beckett at the famed Muscle Shoals studios. The label did not promote the album well and it did not achieve its expected success. After this release Taylor took a break from the music industry to raise her two young daughters, Elizabeth and Aretha.
