Written by Clay on October 3, 2013
Sean Taylor has rapidly grown to be one of the hottest new names in the UK blues / acoustic scene. His incredible passion for performance, sheer talent and songwriting of the highest calibre is a testament to his frequent comparisons with John Martyn, Chris Isaak and Tom Waits. Sean’s fourth album ‘Walk With Me’ was released in September and has already attracted incredible reviews in major music press. The album was produced by Trevor Hutchinson and features pedal steel legend BJ Cole as well as a stellar array of other musicians including Vyvienne Long and Dave Hingerty.
