Like millions of viewers, a local ABC affiliate discovered Taylor’s work and interviewed her during August of 2020. As it turns out, Taylor is living the dream. “I think I was born to be a drummer,” she shared. “I had this dream — I always wanted to become this famous drummer. That’s when I was a teenager, so it was kind of in the back of my mind.”

She couldn’t have imagined where this would go. “All of a sudden, I started getting all kinds of followers,” she marveled. “And I’m on TikTok now, too. I just keep putting stuff up and it keeps going and going.” That TikTok channel now has dozens of videos, many of which boast equally impressive numbers. Check her out below!
