Event Details

For roots rock artist Taylor Scott, 2020 was a year of reckoning. After a rocky year weathering personal storms, and having live music come to what seemed to be an indefinite pause, Taylor realized the only option was to shift his perspective, and he decided to use the time to reflect and regroup.“I recommitted myself to music and personally had to work through so much. I felt like I was hitting my head against the wall for so long, and something finally just broke open.‘Some of the new songs dealt with those dark months, charging ahead, because the only way out of it was to go forward through it. The others are so happy and lighthearted, and I haven’t written that way for years. I’m feeling celebratory now, and those songs reflect that.”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 his2019 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 year. The decision to team up with Berlin again to produce was a no-brainer .The upcoming 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. The first single, “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.”Taylor Scott has toured the US, Canada, and Europe as guitarist for blues legend OtisTaylor, 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, and many more. As Scott and his crew prepare to unveil 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
