Steven V. Taylor, Class of 1977
Music Education Major
Owner of Taylor Productions/A6 Studios
Dove Award Winner, Grammy Nominee
From albums like “VeggieTales Worship” to award-winning musicals, University of Mobile alumnus Steven V. Taylor has worked on one tremendously successful project after another during his years in the contemporary Christian music industry. The Grammy-nominated producer, arranger and songwriter has won 6 Dove Awards for efforts such as the “Friends Forever” musical and the choral collection of “God of Wonders.” He was also nominated for a Dove Award in 2004 for Producer of the Year in Christian Music.
Yet Steven, who always has another project on the horizon, still finds time to give back to his alma mater. He presents workshops at UM for groups like Voices of Mobile, helping them develop a quality, professional vocal style.
Steven said it was during his own years at UM that he decided to pursue contemporary Christian music as a profession, and he encourages current students to look at all the possibilities that are out there including church work, songwriting, artistry, and music business.
