''Superbly tailored songs'' (****) Daily Mirror

''A bluesy devotional intensity that rightly draws comparisons to John Martyn" Q Magazine

''A star in the making ...a superb talent'' Metro

Now that he’s a seasoned performer and recording artist of ten years standing, Sean Taylor has achieved a special maturity — stemming from experience, but also from the excitement in artistic freedom that experience can sometimes bring — with his new album Flood & Burn.

Sean puts it like this: “I felt a freedom and confidence in writing the original songs, and in the making of this recording. And that’s exciting.” For Sean, the song dictates everything, who he plays with live and the instruments that he has on the album. Born and bred in Kilburn, North West London. Sean first played gigs when he was 17. One of his main influences when he first picked up the guitar at 14 was Oasis. He then became interested in “finger style guitarists”, like John Martyn.

Over the last three/four years, he has played with various line-ups, including Danny Thompson. Sean Taylor is one of the most exciting and hard working names on the international roots and blues circuit....He has toured all over the UK, Europe and Australia and has supported many famous musicians including, John Mayall & Arlo Guthrie. Sean tours both solo and with his band ... This Tour includes over 20 dates with gigs in the UK, Denmark, France and Germany ... In the UK he will be joined by Mike Seal on the double bass ... Sean is working towards recording a new album and he will be performing some new songs as well as previous albums ... "Sean Taylor is a wonderfully talented modern troubadour whose sincere, thoughtful songs pull you in. Eric Bibb ''Wonderful'' Mark Radcliffe BBC Radio 2 ''A fine blues guitarist ... Taylor is a man to watch' Guardian ''Sean Taylor's work just gets classier ... His talent might yet puncture the mainstream' Classic Rock 8/10 ''A fine young musician, songwriter and great geezer. I have nothing but admiration for the dedication to his craft.' Danny Thompson
