With a sound steeped in the sunlit tones of Laurel Canyon, the mid 60's pop and R&B of the Brill Building, and the lo-fi synths of early prog rock, Oakland resident Steve Taylor is equal parts folk troubadour and blue-eyed soul balladeer. A multi-instrumentalist with a surprisingly diverse background, including stints in black gospel churches, avant folk ensembles, and Oakland indie band Rogue Wave, he's also recently collaborated with members of Yeasayer, Vetiver, and Fruit Bats.
Now back from tour, he is recording a followup to his latest release, "Has The Size of The Road Got The Better of You?", which was recorded by Aaron Prellwitz (Neil Young and Crazy Horse) and Jay Pellicci (Deerhoof) at the venerable Tiny Telephone Studio in SF. Layering acoustic guitars with vintage organs, pianos, analog synthesizers, and dead drums, he creates a sound that's both modern and thoroughly informed by 70's AM rock. $8.00
