    In addition to her musical career, Sally Taylor is an advocate for the victims of land mines. To this end, she founded "The Tranquility Project" with her husband Dean Bragonier. The charity endeavors to remove landmines from southeast Asia, raise awareness of the issues, and to assist victims to regain their lives and provide hope. She appears on a CD, Too Many Years, to benefit Clear Path International's work with land mine survivors. In 2007, Taylor hosted a charity concert in her home of Boulder, Colorado with singer-songwriter Wendy Woo and the band Something Underground, made up of brothers Seth and Josh Larson from the Colorado music scene. Taylor has joined the band in the last few years, traveling through the Midwest and all the way to Southeast Asia twice, performing charity concerts.

    Alternative projects

    As the daughter of singer-songwriters James Taylor and Carly Simon, Sally's birth was mentioned in the song "Sarah Maria", on James Taylor's 1975 album Gorilla. Carly Simon's Hotcakes album, released in January 1974, contains a song called "Think I'm Gonna Have a Baby", and the cover photo is a study of the expectant mother.

    She graduated from Tabor Academy, a college-preparatory boarding school in Marion, Massachusetts.
