What’s your sign?
Cancer

Most underrated song that, in your opinion, should be a classic:
“Midnight in Harlem”

Biggest compliment you’ve ever gotten from a fan?
One time a stranger got down on one knee and “proposed” to me at a gig. I don’t know if that qualifies as the biggest compliment, but it has to be one of my oddest.

What is your favorite piece to perform?
“Desperado,” by the Eagles

What do you sing in the shower?
Anything that’s stuck in my head!

Favorite cereal?
Honeycomb

At what venue do you most like to perform?
This summer I’ve been loving the Whiskey Room.

Most requested song at shows?
I want to say it might be “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

First concert you attended?
When I was in the third grade, my dad took me to see Hilary Duff for my birthday. I’m pretty sure I wore bright gold pants and a blonde wig.

Favorite artist?
Susan Tedeschi!

Place you go to get away from it all?
The water

Do you tweet, gram or book? What’s your handle?
I don’t really tweet or post too much on
Facebook, but my Instagram is @taylorkent7.

Finish this verse as if it were the hook of a song: “Sally went down to the bayou…
When the moon hung high last night,
Chasing the same old one who
She lost within her sight.”

Who would star as you in the epic retelling of your life on film?
I got some funny answers when I asked my friends what they thought about this one. My favorites were Pocahontas and young Cher.

First instrument you learned to play?
Piano

Song you were thrilled to finally master?
“Don’t Think Twice, it’s All Right,” by Bob Dylan

What do you wish you knew more about?
Music theory. Or surfing!

What animal do you most identify with?
Definitely a sea animal; I guess a dolphin?

If you got super-famous and you had to change your name, what would your new name be?
Hmm … this is hard. My middle name is Lanai, so maybe that.

What famous musician would you love to sing a duet with?
Zach Stevens
