Christopher Taylor new single out May 31
Christopher Taylor is a Harrogate based singer/songwriter whose lyrical, folk influenced songs flow freely between pop, rock and jazz with a fresh, accessible approach that never does anything the same way twice.
A full-time working musician, Chris started playing the guitar and singing in his teens. A number of local bands took him from youth clubs, churches and school gigs to a job as a full-time bassist and vocalist in a band playing the club and disco circuit across the UK and abroad. The work has continued into his 50s in various outfits in the North of England, where he continues to perform as a full-time musician.
Chris owes his laid back, mellow delivery to the handful of Seth Lakeman and Jack Johnson records in his collection, while early childhood heroes Alice Cooper and David Bowie have left a strong sense of drama in his work. His clearly defined pop hooks wouldn’t sound out of place on a playlist featuring George Ezra, Vance Joy, James Blunt, The Lumineers and Train.
Chris was awarded the Akademia Music Award for Best Pop Rock EP in February 2016 for 'Chasing
Rainbows' EP. His singles ‘Meet Me On The Horizon’ and 'How beautiful you are' won best Folk/Pop song Akademia Award in the same year and received enthusiastic support from BBC Introducing. New single With You Life’s Beautiful, out on Friday 31st May 2019, is bound to build on the success of his previous track Counting Bluebirds, which got a rapturous reception at BBC Introducing.
“Taylor's silky suave vocal aesthetic takes centre stage in this meditative pop folk invention, no doubt soon to be omnipresent on the airwaves.” – Akademia
