Johnny Lamont Merrett was born on February 11th, 1943 in Gregory, Arkansas and moved to Los Angeles in 1950, where he sang with The Mighty Clouds of Joy. He then moved into secular music as a solo artist, firstly for “swingin” records, then to the San Francisco based “Galaxy” records, a subsidiary of “Fantasy” records, where he initially had some success. By 1971, Taylor had moved to the Shreveport, Louisiana based “Ronn” records, which was a subsidiary of “Paula” records, where again he had some success. Though he recorded only sparingly during the 1980’s and 1990’s, he remained an active performer until his death on May 17th at the age of 59, in Conway, Arkansas.
