Rockets and Dinosaurs are a Calgary based pop punk band and have been recording here at Taylor Sound since early 2011, with the release of their first EP.
After winning the 2012 X92.9 Exposure contest, the band were back in the studio recording their first full length album, and what an album it turned out to be!
RAD released the new CD entitled “Gnarly Angry Love” to a roaring crowd saturday night at The University of Calgary’s “The Den”.
The album is available on bandcamp
Canadian Rock-Polka band Zhyto announced the release of their debut album at this year’s Ukranian Festival in Dauphin Manitoba, and what a perfect venue to do so. Joined by Mr. Brad Taylor, it was a wild weekend of polka and perogy madness.
Zhyto started recording their first full length album here at Taylor Sound in February and has been nothing but good times. Polka music has that effect.
Zhyto will be having their home CD release party here in Calgary this Friday, August 17 at Lord Nelson’s Pub. Guaranteed Good Time.

Every year local radio station X92.9 hosts a independent local music competition (Xposure) that pumps $75,000 into the Calgary music scene by giving 3 bands, $25,000 each. This year we are very proud to have another Taylor Sound Recording project be declared a winner. We would like to congratulate Rockets and Dinosaurs on their win and for their perseverance and consistency in moving toward their goal.
Here is their winning song entitled Angel Eyes.
Hip Hop artist Joey Knuckles has been a friend and solo artist of the studio for a while now. He recently joined forces with beat maker and producer King Cole to form a new project called ‘Suicide Kings‘ and it is gonna drop jaws on the Calgary/Canada Hip Hop Scene for sure! The sound is huge and we are excited to be a part of it.
Reign Supreme is the first album for Suicide Kings and was released Feb 16 at The Amsterdam Rhino Club in Calgary. Well rounded and grounded in years of experience in the music industry, they are excellent to work with, full of big talent and definately worth checking out.
Calgary Indie Rock Band, Deluge, released their newest EP at one of Calgary’s favorite live music venues, Dickens Pub. Playing to a wonderful crowd of fans and friends, the band noted that it was one of their best ever turnouts. Deluge headlined the evening alongside other local colleagues and friends in Calgary’s indie scene.
The Nether is their first recording release with Taylor Sound, to be available soon on itunes. We congratulate them and wish them success with this album.
Recently Taylor Sound purchased the Hear Back System by Hear Technologies. This incredible system allows each individual artist to control his or her own headphone mix. So no more are the days of “Hey, I need more guitar”, or “Hey, can you turn down the guitar please?”. No, those days are gone.
Each pod, as shown below, has dedicated channels for individual instruments, including talk back channel to the engineer. When an artist has control of their sounds and volumes it boasts for a better performance, which is key in every recording session.
The sudden snow storm wasn’t enough to keep away fans of Calgary Rock Band, Atacama Republic during their self-titled release, March 3, 2012 at Shooters Bar and Grill in Calgary, Alberta. Great party, great guys.
This band has been recording with Taylor Sound since their inception, first demoing up their songs during our mobile recording days, long before the opening of the studio. They are great to watch live, and are hard-working humble guys who love to play music.
We look forward to working again with AR starting at the end of March this year. The band are continuously writing songs and are motivated and focused in creating a full length, great sounding album.
