Taylor Hanson: MMMBop Singer, Producer & Humanitarian

Taylor Hanson co-founded the Hanson Brothers band at age nine in 1992 with his six- and eleven-year-old brothers, Isaac and Zac. The young performers spent the next five years building a fan base in their hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, before bursting onto the world stage with their smash single, “MMMBop.” The song ranked #1 in 27 countries simultaneously and was followed by multiple Grammy nominations, five consecutive top 40 singles, and millions of albums sold.

Performing together for over 30 years, Taylor and his brothers continue to draw a global fanbase. They founded 3CG Records in 2003 and have sold more than 16 million albums to date. Touring extensively, they’ve performed sold-out concerts for over 3 million fans around the globe.

In addition to their musical endeavors, in 2007 Hanson launched their Take The Walk grassroots campaign to provide poverty and HIV/AIDS relief in Africa. In 2014, Taylor founded the Tulsa-based volunteer organization, Food on the Move, to end food insecurity by offering fresh produce, prepared meals, and access to community and health resources.

Interviewed by Winn Claybaugh, Taylor describes his 30-year career, including his performances at the 1998 Grammy’s and his appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, and Saturday Night Live.

Although passionate about his music career, Taylor is equally committed to using his celebrity to give back to multiple causes and charities. He talks about being “tapped on the shoulder” to get involved with organizations like Tom’s Shoes, Music Cares, Women Life Freedom, Food On The Move, and more. A family man with 7 children, Taylor focuses on maximizing his time rather than pursuing balance in his marriage, career, fame, and philanthropy.
