Major Taylor was formed in the Spring of 2010 by Tesfa Zawdie (Survival Sounds, Tall Grass) and Kute Tonge (Fire & Brimtstone, Felon, Black Vampires.) Tesfa & Kute have been playing over 30 years of guitar between them. They have played venues such as CBGB's, Mercury Lounge, Tramps, Wetlands and many more. ​ After many years of jamming together they decided to collaborate and laid down the foundations for the eclectic rock group, Major Taylor. A mutual friend of Tesfa's introduced Federico Ughi (The Moon, Daniel Carter) and through similar tastes and passion for music the virtuoso drummer was recruited into the band. The group began doing gigs as a power trio in the Spring of 2010. By Fall of that year their sound was becoming heavier. They were known for swtiching up instruments, their melodic heavy sound was rocking the underground music scene. Rather than alternating between bass and guitar the group decided to create a bigger sound and add friend and bass player Djibril Toure (Mobius Collective, The GZA, Tequitha) to the fury and have been rocking clubs and bars around NYC ever since. The band is based in Brooklyn, NY and are currently finishing their first EP Album. Major Taylor is: Tesfa Zawdie (Guitars, vocals) Kute Tonge (Guitars) Djibril Toure (Bass) Federico Ughi (Drums)
