The Jube, Woolacombe – UK based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumental loop pedal artist. Already compared by reviewers to the likes of Bill Withers, John Martyn and Jeff Buckley, Alex Taylor is one of the shining lights of the acoustic scene and a troubadour of world-class standing.
“Alex Taylor is a genius with a loop pedal… and his voice is stunning” – Metro
When you see him perform live, prepare yourself for an energetic and passionate vocal performance, dextrous and original acoustic playing and some dynamic loop pedal trickery for good measure.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-yet gentle, shape‐shifting voice firmly in the spotlight.A festival favourite, Alex recently headlined the BBC Stage at Bristol Harbour Festival, and has played many other stages including Cambridge Folk Festival and Cheltenham Jazz Festival.Touring extensively, Alex has notched hundreds of gigs with previous support slots including Jack Savoretti, Roachford, Nell Bryden and Michael Kiwanuka.
His critically acclaimed debut album features performances from members of The Invisible, Newton Faulkner’s band, Portishead and Massive Attack.
His new EP is available now, with a brand new full studio album set for release early 2019.
