Taylor and the Apes are a Rock n Roll band based in NYC who have gained a loyal following and reputation for their superb songwriting and dynamic, raw, exciting live shows. Led by singer/guitarist Taylor Anspaugh, the Apes have toured the East Coast and Canada multiple times, and released their debut album, American Livin, in 2018. While the Apes are all born and raised in Brooklyn, Taylor hails from Indiana.

This combination gives the Apes their distinct, energetic sound: the anthemic, big chords of heartland rock with a slick, big city feel. The band’s songs swing with intimate, heartfelt lyrics that drip with four-part harmonies, melodic keys and jangling guitars; a sound reminiscent of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Bruce Springsteen. After multiple residencies at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall, Taylor and the Apes’ latest single, “Logan County,” was released in 2020, and was featured in the spring issue of Relix Magazine.
