  • Steve Taylor

    Steve Taylor

    With a sound steeped in the sunlit tones of Laurel Canyon, the mid 60’s pop and R&B of the Brill Building, and the lo-fi synths of early prog rock, Los Angeles resident Steve Taylor makes cinematic, impressionistic psych-folk that pushes the envelope of the singer/songwriter genre. A multi-instrumentalist with a remarkably diverse background, his talents have been in demand for everyone from black gospel churches to the LA electro soul group Rhye. He’s steadily recorded his new opus, “The Land of Milk and Honey”, in between international tours and recording gigs. A sparse, moody, and beautiful record ruminating on the search for an idyllic paradise amidst the chaos and loneliness of modern day life, he layers vintage organs, pianos, analog synthesizers, and dead drums, creating a sound that’s both modern and thoroughly informed by 70’s AM rock.
     
    Influenced by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Nick Drake, and Joni Mitchell, his last album “Has the Size of the Road Got the Better of You?” was recorded at home and at the venerable Tiny Telephone Studio in San Francisco. The record showed the expanded influence of gospel music, something he explored while he was a guitarist and organist (and often the only white person present) at a number of prominent African American congregations in the San Francisco Bay Area.
     
    Performing solo and with his band, Steve has played hundreds of shows, including headlining slots at The Independent and The Chapel in San Francisco, The Echo and The Hotel Café in LA, and The Hope & Anchor in London. An avid busker, he has made many fans the old fashioned way, through singing his heart out and pounding out his songs on his portable Helpinstill piano, an electrified acoustic remnant from the 70’s.
     
    In addition to being an active solo artist, Steve has played as a singer, keyboardist or guitarist with an incredibly diverse range of collaborators, including Rhye, Avi Buffalo, Nicki Bluhm, Bob Weir and Phil Lesh, Bootsy Collins, Vetiver, and members of CAN, Guns n Roses, The Hawkins Singers, Deathcab for Cutie, and The Dirty Projectors. He’s looking forward to getting his own musical visions out to the world in 2015
