TAYLOR SCOTT BAND

June 18 @ 9:00 pm

$10.00

Taylor Scott is known for his soulful brand of funk-infused rock n’ roll and gut-punching lyricism, punctuated by his prodigious guitar skills. So it made sense to enlist the production expertise of Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) to help him realize the vision for his 2019 scorcher of an album, All We Have. After releasing a live EP in 2020 recorded at legendary San Diego venue The Belly Up, Scott was compelled to get back into the studio to lay down what had transpired musically over the last couple years. The decision to team up with Berlin again to produce was a no-brainer. Look for the new singles here as we head for the new album release this summer.

“Taylor Scott is one of the most talented singer/songwriter/guitar monsters I have had the pleasure of working with. His ability to distill complex human feelings into concise 4-minute epics for an artist as young as he is is truly extraordinary, and then to rip a face-melting solo on top of it all? Just remarkable to say the least.” – Steve Berlin

The forthcoming album is a collection of tunes written over the past few years, throughout all of the unexpected ups and downs, from all different angles.  There are a lot of different viewpoints defined in these songs.  Presently rolling out digital singles, the first one, “Bleeding Out”, may be a good example of what Taylor calls an angry funk tune.  “After being cooped up playing acoustic guitar for so long, I guess I was feeling aggressive musically. I’m really proud of how the band sounds and carries the groove on that track.”

“Throwback Grooves” is the 2nd single, a mellow funky groove, it’s inspired by their favorite 70s soul records and features Eric Benny Bloom (Lettuce) on trumpet in a standout solo.  The brand new single, “Dance All Night” is a song about seeing light through the dark – it’s about being present. Producer, Steve Berlin really helped the track come alive in the studio. The ‘out’ section in the middle is one of Taylor’s favorite things to pull off live.

Taylor Scott has toured the US, Canada, and Europe as guitarist for blues legend Otis Taylor, and played alongside the likes of Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule) on Otis Taylor’s critically acclaimed release Hey Joe Opus: Red Meat. He sits in as a guest guitarist with Los Lobos on many occasions, and the Taylor Scott Band has provided opening support for bands like Los Lobos, Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Buddy Guy, Andy Frasco & the UN, Vince Herman, and many more. As Taylor Scott Band unveils new music, they are eager to bring their signature style of joyful energy to the stage.

“It feels better then ever to be out on the road now with new music, and a new perspective. See you out there.” – Taylor Scott
