It's Nicholas!

The Music of Nicholas Taylor


Back to home
The apartment was on West 92nd Street in New York City is where Gray, the band with Jean-Michel Basquiat, practiced maybe 3-4 times a week. It was actually a "squat" which means the landlord left the building and we had to do the building's work ourselves. The whole month of January 1979 no heat or hot water because the landlord just left and the boiler was impossible. It was super cold and sleeping by the stove in the ktchen. Always making art and music of some kind and continued. It was always so important and make projects straight from the creative source. Since a very young age built things with hands and making art and music mostly. Cannot read music quickly.
