DURING THESE VERY HARD TIMES, LIKE EVERY PROFESSIONAL IN THE LIVE EVENTS INDUSTRY, I HAVE LOST ALL MY WORK FOR THIS YEAR. I MAY PICK UP A HANDFUL OF SHOWS BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR, BUT CURRENTLY HAVE ONLY PLAYED TWICE SINCE MARCH. IT IS LOOKING MORE AND MORE LIKELY THAT WE WON’T BE ABLE TO PLAY LIVE GIGS AS WE KNOW THEM, IN UK VENUES, UNTIL SOMETIME IN SPRING/SUMMER 2021. THE GOVERNMENT HAVE DECIDED TO NOT GIVE ANYMORE SUPPORT TO INDIVIDUALS IN OUR INDUSTRY, WHICH IN MY OPINION IS SHAMEFUL.
I KNOW THAT NOBODY OWES ME A LIVING, I JUST WANT TO BE ABLE TO CONTINUE DOING MY JOB.
IF YOU FEEL YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT ME WITH A DONATION/TIP, HOWEVER LARGE OR SMALL, PLEASE FIND THE LINKS BELOW TO MY 'BUY ME A COFFEE' PAGE AND MY PAYPAL: WWW.PAYPAL.ME/ALEXTAYLORMUSIC ANY HELP IS MUCH APPRECIATED! YOU CAN ALSO PURCHASE MUSIC AND MERCH FROM THIS PAGE OR MY BANDCAMP PAGE: WWW.ALEXTAYLORMUSIC.BANDCAMP.COM

Buckley-esque singer songwriter"

and his voice is stunning"

The Guardian ****
“Sings his own lyrics with a technical polish and an affecting, unaffected sincerity...
Irish Times ****
...that puts him in a category alongside contemporary male vocalists such as Theo Bleckmann & Kurt Elling"
Irish Times ****
“An intriguing mix which... elevates the songs above the usual singer-songwriter fare"
Acoustic Magazine ****
“Alex Taylor is One to Watch... 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"
"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"
