About Alex Taylor
Already compared by reviewers to the likes of Bill Withers, John Martyn, Damien Rice, ?Jack Garratt, Sting & Jeff Buckley, Alex Taylor is one of the shining lights of the acoustic scene and a troubadour of world?class standing.
When you see him perform live, prepare yourself for an energetic and passionate vocal performance, dextrous and original acoustic playing and some dynamic loop pedal trickery for good measure.
Drawing on varied influences from a wide musical spectrum, Alex’s unique style splices elements of soul, nu-folk and electronica to place his powerful, shape-shifting voice firmly in the spotlight.
His critically acclaimed debut album features performances from members of The Invisible, ?Newton Faulkner, Phantom Limb, ?Portishead & Massive Attack.
NEW ALBUM OUT 2017
A festival favourite, Alex recently headlined the BBC stage at The Bristol Harbourside Festival, and has played many other stages including Cambridge Folk Festival & Cheltenham Jazz Festival.
Touring extensively, Alex has notched up hundreds of gigs in this past year alone, with support slots including: Joss Stone, ?Roachford, Red Sky July, ?Stu Larsen & Michael Kiwanuka.
With lots of big tour dates in the pipeline and a brand new studio album set for release early next year,
2017 is looking good for Alex Taylor.
