Like the part-human, part-machine allusions of his nickname, Stefon Bionik Taylor is at one in both acoustic and electronic realms. As a composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and collaborator who brings out the best in those around him, that Bionik theory works. Taylor has composed, arranged, and collaborated on countless records with classic and contemporary artists ranging from Phil Collins to Lizzo. He’s been in the studio with legendary producers like George Martin (The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix) and Peter Mokran (Aaliyah, Mary J. Blige, The Flaming Lips). His original compositions and productions have been synced in the Fast and Furious movie series, Power Rangers Movie, Empire, Insecure, Grownish, The New Negroes, NBA 2K, Trials Rising video game series, and many more. Bionik is a McKnight Composer Fellow, a COMPAS resident teaching artist, music director for the MIXTAPE mentorship program, and an instructor at Slam Academy.
