The story so far
Who is Chris Taylor
Yorkshire artist, Chris Taylor, is a song-writer who loves to work 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 (vocals and guitar) that he currently gigs most of the time, although he can also call upon other musicians to add that extra colour as and when required.
What has been going on?
2015 was the beginning of a new chapter for Chris and 2016 proved to be another exciting year with new songs, updated branding and being presented with a number of awards for his music.
In 2017 Chris released a collaboration EP called ‘Meet me on the horizon’. On this he worked with some really talented musician, with songs incorporating Trumpet, Violin, Saxophone, Steel guitar and stunning additional vocals.
