They formed the group Hanson and signed a recording contract as teens. The group is famous for their hit single, “MMMBop.” Hanson continues to record music now, with Taylor also going to form the rock band Tinted Windows.
In a young age, Taylor and his brothers, Isaac and Zac, found their dad’s rock ‘n’ roll record set and became interested in music. The lads would walk round the house singing, after picking up instruments they discovered in thrift stores. Taylor was brought to the piano.
The three brothers formed a group and started to play everywhere they could, including celebrations, state fairs and caf parking lots. While the lads played these little sites, their mom would sell Hanson’s alone released first album, Boomerang. The record featured the three lads singing three-part harmony above a techno-sounding beat and contained an early performance of their after hit single, “MMMBop.”
Sabec became their supervisor and finally joined the trio with record producer Steven Greenberg, who signed the group to Mercury Records.
Taylor Hanson’s contract with Greenberg and Mercury Records contained a six-record deal. Their very first studio album using a major label, Middle of Nowhere, premiered in 1997. Middle of Nowhere featured their platinum and Grammy Award-nominated single “MMMBop,” along using the Top 10 hits “I’ll Come to You” and “Where Is the Love.”
Hanson’s follow up to Middle of Nowhere was Snowed In, which likewise sold platinum and went Top 10. The group has continued to record records, but hasn’t had the opportunity to duplicate the success of their first attempt.
Hanson wed in 2002 and is a father of five.
Hanson and his brothers observed their group’s 21st anniversary in 2013 by releasing their very own beer, “Mmmhops.”
