Music Genre(s):

Hard Rock


Taken plays a genre of rock that isn't very well accurately described - it delves into Metal, Alternative Rock, Classic Rock, Blues, Funk, Folk, and even classical influences. They can be hard edged and heavy, or slow and sweet, or both at once. With female vocals, their music is laced with lots of melodies, and harmonies. And at the same time, maintains the riff-oriented, distorted or clean drive of the guitars. Influences include Metallica, Creed, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Alanis, Soundgarden, Veruca Salt, Kittie, Green Day, Steve Vai, Pearl Jam, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Shannon Curfman, Kittie, Zakk Wylde - anything and everything. Among the 5 of us, we probably have a greater variation in our CD collections than most bands would.


Taken was formed in 2001, and are from in and around Lapel, Indiana (members also come from Anderson and Noblesville). All 5 members are between the ages of 18 and 20. Female vocals, female drummer. The main focus of the band is on original music, both writing and performing. 90% of the set is their own work. Taken loves to play live when possible, and puts a lot of effort into making the show as good as it can be.
