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.
He has opened for artists such as John Fogerty, Neville Brothers, Tony Joe White, Eric Bibb, Tom Paxton, Tift Merritt and Band Of Horses. He has toured Holland, Switzerland, Australia, France and Ireland.
The past couple of years has seen Sean’s profile rocket with three UK tours and festival performances at Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival, Beautiful Days and many others.
In September 2013 Sean''s new album ''Chase The Night'' is released. The album was recorded in Austin, TX with producer Mark Hallman (Carole King, Ani Di Franco & Eliza Gilkyson) and features legendary double bass player Danny Thompson.
