Watch Taylor Upsahl’s music video for “Digital Papers”

Taylor Upsahl may only be 18, but she is a seasoned rock star. The Phoenix New Times wrote about how her musical talent “will blow you away” when she was barely old enough to drive legally. I must have been living under a rock because I hadn’t heard of the singer-songwriter until I caught her performing at this year’s Phoenix Rock Lottery.

Joel Marquard is one of my favorite musicians. He was an original guitarist in Dear and the Headlights – one of the best bands to ever break out of Phoenix – and he is the mastermind behind so many more projects: Gospel Claws (not a gospel band), the Through and Through Gospel Review (a gospel band), Samuel L Cool J, and Spiritual Warfare.

You can listen to and purchase Spiritual Warfare music here.
