Singer, songwriter, guitarist, Jason Taylor originally founded and launched Dropshot in Tampa, FL in 2013. After two years of regional touring , the line-up could no longer handle the riggers of the road and decided to take a hiatus in 2015. Unable to sit still, the band performed a few one off reunion shows around Florida, however, the line up finally called it quits in 2016. Unsettled and wanting to continue performing the songs he wrote and loves so dearly, Jason Taylor decided to relocate to the Smokey Mountains in Asheville, NC. Here he first met bassist, Josh Shook (MindShapeFist) at a local metal concert and struck up a conversation about music which later lead to an awesome jam session and ideas of writing and performing together. Later on down the line, Jason happened across an online add for a drummer, new to AVL and looking to play louder than he was currently.
"We are obviously very excited for this new lineup, but more so just to get back out in the hard rock club circuit and bang our heads to with great fans and kickass hard rock music!" - Jason Taylor
The new lineup is tight and the new music is coming together a break neck speeds.
