Shawn Taylor

With a thumping thumb, dancing fingers, wailing harp, deep, gritty, soul stirring vocals, characters, and stories, Taylor's songs ooze American roots; wandering roots.
He's drawn comparisons from Tom Waites to Ray Lamontagne, Bruce Springsteen to Bob Dylan, Steven Stills to Eddie Vedder, but his original songs are colored by the experiences of his own working class, wandering roots.
He's been an Appalachian Trail 'thru-hiker,' an oysterman, cabinetmaker, hitchhiker, homeowner, father, and a performing musician, song writer, and band leader, for over twenty years.
He tours New England to Nashville (so far) and has shared the stage with artists such as, Maria Muldaur, Sarah Potenza, Peter Mulvey, Vance Gilbert, Garnet Rodgers Caravan of Thieves and a host of others.
His fourth original CD "Balance," arrives, May, 2017 and features a 'balance' of songs and sounds, from solo fingerstyle troubadour, to full steam ahead Wandering Roots Band cuts. It's a project Taylor says, that embodies the spirit of 'wandering roots' music, as it draws from many wells of Americana, from blues, to bluegrass, rock, folk, reggae, and gospel, but also strives to explore human perspectives that transcend musical genres; also, it’s just fun.
