Neat and straight up! That's how best to experience the raw sound of Tommy Taylor.
Coming from a touring UK band background, the North Yorkshire songwriter brings a fresh and exciting edge to the country genre inspired in part by his time as a DJ on the 90s hip hop scene.
With a BA degree in Sound for Film Composition, Tommy Taylor has a keen eye for visuals, something he is able to communicate through his musical stories but also in his live shows.
With his band he rides the more Southern Rock/Americana roads travelled by Blackberry Smoke, Whiskey Myers and Skynyrd.
But it's as a solo singer-songwriter, drawing inspiration from a wide source including Springsteen, Dylan, Billy Bragg, Cash, Seger and Fogerty, where Tommy Taylor is establishing himself as one of the most original and authentic artists on the UK country scene today and a man with big ambition to open up the harder side of the scene with his outlaw band and that rock n roll edge.
Popcorn is Tommy's only release to date and debuted at number 1 showing that Tommy is on the right track and gaining fans fast.
Popcorn; inspired by the notorious moonshiner popcorn Sutton was recorded in Lockdown, whilst Tommy couldn't get to his guitars or recording gear the project was recorded on minimal equipment. A true authentic and raw release where even the vocals were done through a makeshift pop shield made from tights, and a cardboard box.
Tommy owns and runs an Americana bar and eatery and live music venue where he brings his love of music, food and a good time. He champions the local unsigned acts on the scene, and is there to give them a hand on their journey also.
In Tommy's words...
"I live, breathe and bleed the stuff I write about. It is my whole life; the whole southern lifestyle, family, music, the food living your life to the fullest is who I am"
"Working with Chords is a dream come true, and I feel truly blessed they see my vision. They have the same vision too and that's rare; call it fate or whatever but this is meant to be.
We do things differently here, that's how we like it
Strap in let's do this."
