Coming Soon

2019

Chris Taylor World

2019 is a busy year for me. Reunited with my band Love Coma, formed in 1992, we released our first album, Soul Rash in 1993 and Language of Fools in 1995. Now we are back and in the middle of recording our new project called The Boomerang, produced by bass player JJ Plasencio (formerly of Sixpence None The Richer & Plumb). Stay tuned for official release news right here!

If that's not enough to celebrate, I'm working on a brand new album with producer, Misty Jones in Nashville, TN called Lovers, Thieves, Fools & Pretenders and will be released in a box set packaging that includes: vinyl, CD, art prints, photograph prints by Leda Costa, hand written lyrics & a bonus CD of alternate versions of each song.

Lots of exciting stuff happening and a brand new Patreon page for you to get all the music I'm releasing in between, including Born On The Beat digital album, The Broken Man EP & brand new instrumentals each month called Meditations.

"We are in this thing together. We need each other now more than ever. 
I’m a musician and a visual artist & I create from a genuine place in my soul. 
I follow my muse and have never strayed from the path of being uniquely me, 
whether I’m songwriting or painting. 
I want Pateron to be the one place my community can come together… it really does take a village to raise an artist! 
If you would like to help me to continue to create and live my life as an artist… this is the place to do it." ~ Chris

Chris Taylor - The Acoustic Album

Chris Taylor

Chris Taylor

I spent a few days in July of 2018 recording stripped down, mainly acoustic (with a few exceptions) versions of songs I’ve written all along the way.

Some date back to the Love Coma days right on up to just a few years ago.

I wanted to set these songs in a new light. Strip them to their musical core with a guitar and some vocal melodies. I left all the imperfections you might get from an acoustic performance. I'm not too precious about it all - if it has "the vibe".

Several songs have a shining electric guitar played by Mitchell Connell because it’s so good... why not let the notes ring out?

Most everything was recorded in one or two takes. Some of these songs I haven’t played since shortly after recording them.

I recorded the background vocals because if you've ever seen a solo or duo show of mine... then I want you to hear what I hear inside my head while I'm playing these songs.

Bruce Neher mastered this album so it wraps around you as you vibe out through your car stereo speakers.

I love this set of songs and I hope you will too!

Chris Taylor : Bob Dylan Tribute Album

Down A Dead End Street (Tribute to Bob Dylan)

Chris Taylor

I've been a mega-fan of Bob Dylan since 1989. I came to his music late in the game but it was Oh Mercy that caught my attention and since then I've purchased just about everything he's released and have dozens of bootlegs and have heard studio session tapes from different albums throughout the years. I've been playing 2-3 hour shows of nothing but Bob Dylan songs... just as a whim. So it only seemed a natural next step to record them and release them to you. It was impossible to pick only 9 of my favorite Dylan songs, so I just started recording and these were the first 9 I finished. There are way too many songs I didn't choose, I figured they were best listened to by the master himself. Here are nine of my favorites & hopefully soon to be nine of your favorites too! If, for some reason you've never been a fan of Bob Dylan but like my music... don't miss this opportunity to see what I see in his music. It's just a glimpse but oh, what a picture he paints! Oh... in case you're wondering, the title of this album came from a song on his Down In The Groove album, Ninety Miles An Hour (Down a Dead End Street) written by: H. Blair and D. Robertson. It jumped out at me...

Check out this recent interview with myself and my favorite Irish Wiseman, Steve Stockman, all about the making of Down A Dead End Street:
