New Album & Season Greetings

Hello friends 

I have just started work on my new album in Austin, Texas with inimitable producer Mark Hallman (Carole King, Ani DiFranco) ... It was an amazing couple of weeks and the album is unlike anything I have done before. There is lots of work to do but I can't wait for you to hear it. Here we are in the Texas groove. 

Recording in Austin rounds off an incredible year with shows in France, Spain, Netherlands, Germany, Finland, Eire & the UK. I have also toured with blues maestro Eric Bibb and folk rock master Richard Thompson. 

As a touring partner I have worked with double bass legend Danny Thompson, you can see us in action here 

I already have lots of shows booked into next year and the album will be released in time for the festival season. Tickets are already on sale for my spring UK tour here

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 

Peace

Sean Taylor new single out now

Hello
It's Sean Taylor. How's it going? I hope all is well.
Today my debut single 'London' (featuring Danny Thompson) is released on ITunes & Amazon
I will be playing a few shows with Danny in October 

There has already been an incredible reaction to 'London'. It was played on Bob Harris' BBC Radio 2 show, Folk Radio UK, on Resonance FM, Raven N Blues, Roots N Branches & TunAtheday. It was also featured on The Londonist website

This is the story behind the song:  

I began writing my debut single 'London' on a rainy Soho evening. It is a celebration of my hometown and the neon glitter of the London night. As the song unfolds we are taken on an all-night trip from the West End to Brixton, passing through Terry and Julie’s ‘Waterloo Sunset’ en route.
The song was completed in Austin, Texas, with producer Mark Hallman (Carole King, Ani-Di Franco) in a late night recording session laced with whiskey.

Once the song was written and recorded it was missing one thing: double bass legend Danny Thompson    (John Martyn, Nick Drake, and Pentangle) one of the most incredible musicians ever.

The B-side is the blues inflected Love Bleeds; another new song featuring soaring blues harmonica and funky guitar.

My new album 'Chase The Night' is released in September. Pre-order here  ...

Peace
Sean
