Alex Taylor is a UK based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumental loop pedal artist. Already compared by reviewers to the likes of Bill Withers, John Martyn, Damien Rice and Jeff Buckley, Alex Taylor is one of the shining lights of the acoustic scene and a troubadour of world-class standing. His “Dynamic solo shows” are filled with energetic beats and intense and passionate vocal delivery, paired with dextrous and original acoustic guitar playing “using pedals and loops to create a wall of sound” – Maverick Magazine **** Drawing on varied influences from a wide musical spectrum, Alex’s unique style splices elements of soul, nu-folk and electronica to place his powerful, shape‐shifting voice firmly in the spotlight. A festival favourite, Alex recently headlined the BBC stage at Bristol’s Harbour side Festival, and has played many other stages including Cambridge Folk Festival and Cheltenham Jazz Festival.
Touring extensively, Alex has notched hundreds of gigs with previous support slots including Jack Savoretti, Roachford and Michael Kiwanuka. His critically acclaimed debut album features performances from members of The Invisible, Newton Faulkner’s band, Portishead and Massive Attack. With a brand new studio album set for release in the spring, 2019 is looking good for Alex Taylor.
