Alex Taylor - UK based singer songwriter, 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 loop pedal trickery for good measure.

His unique style splices elements of jazz, folk and electronica to place Alex's powerful, shape-shifting voice firmly in the spotlight.

The incredible debut album features performances from members of The Invisible, Phantom Limb, Portishead & Massive Attack.

"Alex is making quite a name for himself on the acoustic circuit with his dynamic solo shows, using pedals and loops to create a wall of sound with just his voice and guitar."

Maverick Magazine ****

"Sublime... Buckley-esque singer song-writer"

Time Out

"An accomplished debut... His gritty, committed vocal adds force to the superior-grade songwriting"

Guitarist Magazine****

"An intriguing mix which... elevates the songs above the usual singer-songwriter fare"

Acoustic Magazine

"A singer songwriter with a compelling voice... Alex Taylor’s songs are finely crafted and topped off with interesting guitar arrangements, all of which adds up to a fine performer"

Venue Magazine

"Alex Taylor is One to Watch... Seek out his self-titled debut CD. If you like John Martyn, you may well love this guy"

Blues & Soul Magazine

"Taylor's debut LP displays quality songcraft... as well as John Martynesque jazz inflections"

Paul Sexton, Music Week

"Taylor is a singer-songwriter of rare intensity... echoes of Bill Withers' jazzy folky soul"

Q

"Taylor throws the kind of twistedly beautiful shapes on acoustic guitar that recall John Martyn, while his voice is a scratchy, committed thing that can walk across a falsetto tightrope with poise or howl like a wounded animal. An impressive introduction."
