We saw Brandon "Taz" Niederauer three times at the end of 2018, including back-to-back shows in December. We caught up with Taz for the first time in 2018 in September when he appeared at the Brooklyn Comes Alive festival in Williamsburg. We crossed paths with Taz again on November 30 when he played at Pearl Street Warehouse in Washington, DC., and again the following afternoon, at a matinee show at Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis.
Before taking the stage at Rams Head, Taz was nice enough to set aside some time from his hectic schedule to sit down with us for a great conversation. We discussed his first prominent role; appearing in School of Rock, his current touring schedule, his writing and music development, and many insights from an extremely talented and bright young man. At only 15, Taz has already been playing seriously for years, and he can play a mean blues guitar. His passion for his music and the music of others is clear; on and off the stage. Below is the interview we did with Taz on December 1, 2018.
