About the event

UK based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumental loop pedal artist. Already compared by reviewers to the likes of Bill Withers, John Martyn, Damien Rice & Jeff Buckley, Alex Taylor is one of the shining lights of the acoustic scene and a troubadour of world-class standing.  His “Dynamic solo shows” are filled with energetic beats and intense and passionate vocal delivery, paired with dextrous and original acoustic guitar playing “using pedals and loops to create a wall of sound” - Maverick Magazine ****  Drawing on varied influences from a wide musical spectrum, Alex’s unique style splices elements of soul, nu-folk and electronica to place his powerful, shape‐shifting voice firmly in the spotlight.  A festival favourite, Alex recently headlined the BBC stage at Bristol’s Harbourside Festival, and has played many other stages including Cambridge Folk Festival & Cheltenham Jazz Festival.  Touring extensively, Alex has notched up over a thousand gigs with previous support slots including Jack Savoretti, Roachford, Nell Bryden, & Michael Kiwanuka.  His critically acclaimed debut album features performances from members of The Invisible, Newton Faulkner’s band, Portishead and Massive Attack.
