Kilburn, London based singer songwriter Sean Taylor whose 2009 release CALCUTTA GROVE received rave reviews the world over has now produced his best work to date.
WALK WITH ME is a stunning collection of eleven new tracks, nine of which are from the pen of Taylor; the remaining two are his take of the traditional She Moved Through The Fair and a superbly unique arrangement of a Shakespearian sonnet entitled Love Hate On. The album was produced by esteemed Trevor Hutchinson (The Waterboys, Sharon Shannon, Eric Bibb, Lunasa) and notable musicians guesting on the album include BJ Cole (Elton John, Sting, REM) on pedal steel, Vyvienne Long (Damien Rice, Lisa Hannigan) on cello, Justin Carroll on Hammond Organ (Van Morrison), Dave Hingerty (The Frames, Josh Ritter) on drums and Michael Buckley (Joss Stone, Mary Coughlan) on sax.
Sean says: “Like everything I have ever done this album came directly from live performance. The songs were developed in a variety of ways. Some of them were written very quickly, such as ‘Perfect Candlelight’ which came together after reading Lorca’s ‘Poet in New York’. Others I started writing years ago. ‘Fare Thee Well’, started life as a gigging riff eight years ago and has become more and more powerful over time.”
