The story so far
Who is Chris Taylor
Yorkshire artist, Chris Taylor, has been song-writing for many years, both alone and in collaboration with other musicians and friends.
Over the years he has played and sung in a number of bands and as a solo artist, at all sorts of events and venues. Having been a professional musician in his 20’s, in 2011 Chris got the opportunity to once again play professionally and is now able to give more time to his real passion for writing and performing his own songs. This has been something he has actively been working towards over the last few years.
It is as a soloist (guitar and vocals) that he currently gigs most of the time, although for his latest songs he records ‘unplugged’ and ‘plugged’ versions so can also call upon the band to add that extra colour as and when required.
Chris’s latest EP ‘Chasing rainbows’ was released at the end of 2015 and was awarded the Akademia Music Award for Best Pop Rock EP in February 2016. New single ‘Meet me on the horizon’ has won the Akademia Music Award for best Pop/Folk song in May 2016.
2015 was the beginning of a new chapter for Chris and 2016 proved to be another exciting year with new songs, updated branding and a more active social media presence.
2017 has kicked off with the release of ‘Meet me on the horizon’ a collaboration EP with some fantastic musicians.
Chris works with Dan Mizen (Active Audio Studios), Paul Hollingsworth (In-Frame Productions) and Stephen Cree (Orange Crush Digital). The website, recordings and publicity are a culmination of working with these talented guys. Chris records and gigs with Faith guitars.
Chris is currently working on a new project of songs, a demo of ‘Innocence’ is available on the Music page. Watch this space for it’s release.
