From Music To Wine – John Taylor – Pairs With: Life
John Taylor has been writing about wine since 2012, but his meanderings on life began way before that. Born and raised in San Diego, California, John moved to Los Angeles in 1982 to pursue dreams of screenwriting and filmmaking. He attended the University of Southern California, where he majored in Shattered Dreams and False Hopes, with a minor in Getting Gut Punched By Reality. After being handed a degree in Journalism in 1987 as a consolation prize, John dove into a career in music. Because getting gut-punched just isn’t painful enough.
By 1996, John and his band, The Uninvited, had produced four independent albums and became one of the most popular acts in the western United States. This lead to a deal on Atlantic Records, which released the band’s self-titled debut album in 1997. The band had two Top 100 hits, and toured nationally with Dave Matthews, Blues Traveller, Third Eye Blind and many other acts. Their music appeared in the TV shows Beverly Hills 90210 and Party of Five, and in the motion pictures The Commandments and North Beach. The band can also be heard in several HBO Documentaries, video games and on that annoying “One Hit Wonders of The 90’s” station your co-worker always plays on Spotify.
In 2001, John’s vast experience in shattered dreams was once again called into play as the band hung up their touring shoes for good. After a brief but horrifying career in real estate, John got wise and made a career out of his favorite hobby – wine – and has held various sales & marketing positions in Napa Valley since 2011. John’s writing career started in earnest at this point, with blogs, essays and short stories appearing in various publications. John is the author of three novels, including the aptly-titled Pairs With: Life, which will be released by Hurn Publications in September 2020.

The world has changed greatly over the course of our generation. Whilst we still don’t quite have gender equality, things have become a lot more equal.
Many modern workplaces and businesses don’t require the traditional male skill sets any more. They require communication skills and networking skills, ‘softer’ skills, if you like.
Women have been having conversations and supporting each other through the transition from homemaker to company director, full time mum to combat sports gym empire owner, but we, as men, don’t seem to have come together to figure out where we fit into this new landscape.
How do we balance our masculinity with being the caring considerate husband/partner/ father?
Some of us have figured it out on our own or with help from our parents, but I feel that what we really need is a community where we can have some important conversations in our own space.
This shouldn’t be antagonistic. This is not about us v them. Happy, confident men and boys equals happy confident women and girls. Win win – on so many levels.

“Darren Bruce is known to be one of those few people who has been able to bring a truly new and unique concept to the table. With vast years of experience in TV broadcasting and his die-hard love for nightlife led him to the launch of “The DJ Sessions.”
He currently directs and produces over 12 events per month, his spontaneous broadcasts stream weekly from the “Rooftop”, “On Location”, “Silent Disco”, “Mobile”, “Cab”, and ”Secret” studio locations with up to 144 hours of unique programming.
Combining “silent disco” technology, and working with some of the top companies in the streaming community, Mr. Bruce figured out a way to quadruple “The DJ Sessions” live streaming/VOD distribution and provide multi-genre music events to reach a much larger demographic of electronic music fans.”
