Chris Taylor: Home Page
Video Press Kit 2016
Before I knew how to do anything, I was a dreamer.
It's been said "He is a painter of songs..." So this is Chris Taylor, a singer, songwriter, visual and graphic artist living in San Antonio, TX. Born from the sounds of Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and U2 as Taylor makes sounds and songs all his own. Twenty six years of making live music and records, he has worked with Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and Matt Slocum of Sixpence None The Richer, among others. He's recorded music both locally, in California and Nashville and has toured extensively through the United States.

"I paint all the time. Original artwork on canvas. I also do commissioned pieces for friends and fans along the way. I sell my originals and hi quality Limited Edition Prints as well. Check them out here."
T SHIRT DESIGNER:
Oscar Wilde said, "One should either BE a work of art, or WEAR a work of art." I'm trying to do and provide both. You can order my T shirts right here.
Music and art come from the same place.Somewhere behind the face. Deep inside, not outer space. It can be the sun in the day or the moon at night. A black light when things aren't right. When you're coming apart, music breaks your heart. It tells you the truth when your eyes and lips lie. Your head in the gutter. Your eyes to the skies.
What I do is listen observe and report in wonderment of being alive then spread the news in verse like a troubadour.
You've just landed in Chris Taylor's World of music and artwork!
My brand new album, Daylight, is available now on iTunes, Amazon, Google + as well as your favorite online music stores! Feel free to scoop up a copy for yourself and then make yourself at home in Chris Taylor World...
New Album(s) Update! - January 15, 2016
The last two months have brought a flurry of creative activity for me. I decided to take the risk of doing my next album though Kickstarter and will reveal it to the world later this year.
Albums?! Yes. Multiple recordings!
First, a "big record" featuring a handful of some of my favorite musicians in some of my favorite bands I have been listening to since I was a teenager. Lots of surprises! Lots of recognizable names! More on this later...
Second, I'm working with Austin musician Curtis Saunier (who was an actual touring bass player in Love Coma) for an album full of re:imagined versions of songs from my back catalog. Some you may be familiar with, some songs never released - all songs - new and full of vibe.
Third, an album of all new acoustic / electric solo and duo songs written and recorded with guitar player Mitchell Connell, who has played in my live band over the last few years. He's also played on the Daylight and Creatio Ex Nihilo albums.
I would absolutely love for you to be a part of my journey... from the ground up!
Stay tuned for the official Kickstarter announcement later this year. Thank you!
