Taylor Johnson spent his for formative years in the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada where he cut his teeth writing songs and performing in various indie rock bands.
At the age of 18 he relocated to Los Angeles where he studied music and began writing songs professionally for pop, country, hip hop and rock artists, which topped the charts in territories around the world.
Although always thankful to be continuously working in the music industry, a longing for writing more personal, meaningful songs and performing said songs was gravely missed. With that, Taylor began writing and performing as The Hope State. After recording and scrapping numerous EP’s Taylor decided it was time to take developing his own material more seriously.
Now living in Toronto, Canada, Taylor is finally set to release “Burn or Bloom” an introspective and intensely honest look at depression, addiction, love and loss. Relentless touring plans will inevitably bring The Hope State’s blend of pop, folk, country and indie rock to a town near you.
