Gary Taylor, born Los Angeles, California, is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer.

His songs have been recorded by a number of leading artists, including "Keep in Touch" by Grover Washington, Jr.; "Good Love" by Anita Baker, Walter Beasley, Lonnie Liston Smith and George Clinton & P-Funk Allstars; "Living Without a Heart" by Vanessa Rubin; "Just Gets Better with Time" and "My Heart Your Heart" by The Whispers.[1]

As a background vocalist, Taylor appeared on The Whispers' R&B #1 "Rock Steady", and "My Flame" for Vanessa Williams, as well as with Nancy Wilson.
