Q: What other styles of music do you (and members of your group) listen to?

Q: How does the Vail Valley music scene compare to other places you’ve played?
A: It doesn’t, that’s why we are here. It’s very special in its own way, we feel like our original music is appreciated here more than anywhere else we have played in the country.
Q: What can the crowd expect from one of your performances?
A: We have a very lively upbeat show, we love to showcase our instruments and incorporate some of our favorite classic covers along with our original music.
Q: Where can readers see a list of your upcoming shows?
A: All of our show dates are posted on TimAndTaylor.com.
Q: Anything else we should have asked, anything else you’d like to share?
A: We were going by the name Austin’s Rose for the past seven years, but we are so excited to be rebranding as Tim and Taylor. Everyone always called us that and it has a ring to it. It’s also our first names so it feels very true to us. We will be releasing a new single and music video in the next 4-6 weeks that we are really excited about so if you follow along on our social media you will be kept up to date on all details of the release! We hope to see everyone at a show in the Vail Valley soon!
