Taylor Turner


Hello there, my name is Taylor. I am pursuing a degree in popular music with a business minor at William Paterson University. I love writing, and I have been writing stories for as long as I can remember. I am obsessed with alt rock and indie music, and Paramore is my favorite band. I've been a musician forever, and I intend to always make music a part of my life! I am a huge nerd and have been to Comic Con 5 times, and my favorite anime is My Hero Academia.

A message from the Editor/Founder of Amped Sound, Danielle

Hello everyone! I have an announcement to make that pains me greatly. Amped Sound will be taking a hiatus. Over the last 4 years, we have had a blast providing you content on your favorite bands, and being where you go to get your Warped Tour setlists. I never thought that Amped would grow to what it has, and that wouldn't have happened without the fans and our wonderful staff. This isn't an end for us, just a break to let us all breath and rebuild AS to what we want it to be. Any content that was already scheduled for the rest of the year will be posted as such. Thank you to everyone who has believed in us, and put for the effort to help make Amped Sound what it has become. We will see you soon. Subscribe below to be notified of future updates from us.
